A ua is a urinalysis, or chemical and microscopic analysis of the urine. The standard urinalysis is performed with a dipstick test for ph, blood, protein, sugar, and ketones. In addition, a urinalysis usually includes a microscope examination to identify if the urine contains cells, "casts" (structures that indicate a problem originating in the kidney) or crystals (such as ...Read more
It serves as a tool: A dipstick ua by itself cannot detect kidney stones; when positive, it serves as an important piece of the puzzle. A microscopic ua may provide more information and cue us in as to what kind of stone may be present. The best way to detect a stone is to catch the stone. Diagnostic imaging is often needed since its a hard fish to catch. ...Read more

I have chronic kidney stones for the past 11 years all my tests are negative, urinalysis positive for hematuria. I'm always in pain and passing stones?
TUBULAR ECTASIA: This may be what you have. An old fashioned test called an I.V.P. Or I.V.U. Used to show it well. It is a variant where the tubes are larger and chrystal form more easily. A voiding diary with ins and outs measured until 2.5 l out per day is achieved can make your stones much smaller or passing as small crystals. ...Read more
Pain for 3 days now on my back left side to my abdomen. It hurts more when I yawn or inhale deeply. My urinalysis is 2-5wbc/hpf. Is this kidney stone?
Many possibilities: Well there can be similarities with a kidney stone one would find blood in the urine. I assume since you had a urinalysis that you had a medical evaluation.

Urinalysis: Urinalysis with 10-25 RBC per HPF is high and abnormal; indicates shedding of blood from either kidney or ureter or bladder; protein 100 is also high and abnormal; the combination usually indicates a glomerular disorder, particularly in males; epi cells and mucus could be from foreskin (if present); if not present, then this indicates irritation and shedding from within - ADVIL (ibuprofen) can cause all this ...Read more
I have 2 kidney stones in my right kidney. My urine has bubbles in it. I had CT scan, blood work up and urinalysis--all was good. Should I worry?
It's been 10 days since they said I have number 20 kidney stone and I have a ua doc. But pain is still there and getting worse?
See urologist...: You need to go to urgent care or a urologist to confirm if stones cause your pain; if yes, where are the offending stones located and how should you be managed timely?

Best wish... ...Read more

Why am I frequently voiding? Not a lot of water intake, blood sugar is 117, and urinalysis was all negative. Slight pain in left hip/ pelvic area. Could this be kidney stones?
Need more info: Was the blood sugar you reported, fasting? If yes, it is in the pre-diabetic range. You should get an A1c test. It is not feasible to provide a more meaningful opinion without additional history, physical examination and may be some tests. It would be prudent to consult a doctor in person. ...Read more

Need a urine culture:
You need both a urine culture (called a c&s) as well as testing for stds.
Kidney stones feel like someone is stabbing you in the back and are amazingly painful continually, not only when you are urinating.
For the diagnosis of prostatitis, you would need to actually have the prostate milked vis your rectum, a rather unpleasant test. ...Read more

Just got my CT scan results back and it says satisfactory, what does this mean, it was a CT scan to see if I had kidney stones?
Follow-up w/ doctor: Results of any exam, lab or imaging need to be explained by the doctor - ask. But I'm expecting that the term 'satisfactory' is being used in the same way 'normal' is. That results don't show anything that should be considered unsatisfactory or requiring correction. But an explanation is part of any medical procedure. Ask. Best wishes! ...Read more
I have had chronic migraine for many years and now kidney stones. Lab results just came back showing severly low v-d; could it be my kidneys?

Got my CT scan results and it said 1 to 2 mm calcications of botj kidneys and may be attributed to nephrocalcinosis does that mean kidney stones?
No: Are you testing our knowledge? Lol whoever ordered the ct scan can tell you that nephrocalcinosis and nephrolithiasis are two different things! Nephrocalcinosis is deposition of calcium within the kidney tissue itself (parenchyma) and nephrolithiasis (kidney stones) are stones, not necessarily made up of calcium found in tubules, ureter and other areas where urine travels before it empties! ...Read more
I was sent to get a blood test because of kidney stones that a sonogram revealed I have. My results show that my MPV is high at 12.7 Is that normal?
MPV=mean platelet volume
This is a little used value in thehemograom, with only weak correlation with disease states. Like red cells, younger platelets tend to be bigger, and stress reactions may prompt earlier release from the marrow. Many possible causes, but little utility in isolation. ...Read more

Waiting for STD results. Had unprotected sex weeks ago. No discharge, odor, or sores. As I pee very painful tip of penis. Likely kidney stones? ATI?
A few possibilities: "Weeks ago" is too long a delay in symtoms for most STDs. Probably you mean UTI, not ATI. Non-STD urinary tract infections are rare at your age, although possible especially if you had anal sex. Gonorrhea is possible, but usually has prominent pus discharge. Maybe herpes, but usually only with obviously visible blisters/sores. Stone passage may be possible. Hang in there, work with doctor. ...Read more
I was diagnosed with kidney stones lately and asked for my test results. The results worried me with a leukocyte of 13.7 and potassium of 3.3. Danger?
Possible: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, A potassium of 3.3 is lower than desirable. You may address it by drinking orange juice and eating bananas. Leukocyte count of 13.7 suggests infection. Both of these matters are best discussed with your doctor who knows more about your health. ...Read more
