My urinalysis result -WBC urine 11-30/hpf with few bacteria found and told I have E Coli. Is an antibiotic is necessary if I have no symptoms?

Probably: However, IF the urine specimen was contaminated, it is possible that you had a "False Positive" test. It's not easy to give a "clean catch" urine specimen! It's unusual for a Dr to run an UA if there is no reason. Fever, increased frequency or urgency. Sometimes it can be an early infection without many symptoms, and untreated it could lead to a full blown infection or worse, a kidney infection. ...Read more

Ua (Definition)

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

My Urinalysis, showed pH of 8.0 and the presence of 0-1 wbc, for a consecutive time after my first test 7 months ago yielded same result. Pls Remedy?

My Urinalysis, showed pH of 8.0 and the presence of 0-1 wbc, for a consecutive time after my first test 7 months ago yielded same result. Pls Remedy?

Not totally abnormal: A urine pH of 8 is at the upper limits of normal range. Abnormally high urine pH can results from kidney problems, urinary tract infections, vomiting, etc. 0-1 WBC in a clean catch specimen (you peed in a cup) is not considered abnormal. More history about your medical issues would be helpful to answer your question more meaningfully. ...Read more

Urinalysis results: reaction PH 8.0/ leukocytes SMALL 1+ / WBC 2-5/ epithelial cells SOME/ bacteria SOME/ everything else is negative and normal.

UA results: Minor variations in the components of a urinalysis can occur normally, but no one can safely judge whether an infection is present by reading UA results online The doctor who ordered the test can explain whether the UA results might mean an infection, or whether an infection is unlikely. If the diagnosis was no infection but you continue to feel ill later, a recheck is needed. ...Read more

Color:yellow, cloudy rbc:1-3/hpf wbc:2-4/hpf amorphous (materials):moderate bacteria:moderate. Does this urinalysis result show problems? Thank you

Probably okay...: Nowadays, urinalysis (ua) is done by computer automation reading, resulting in common erroneous report as trace or moderate bacteria. So, overall this ua is normal or unremarkable, but suggesting possible contamination, which is common in sexually active females. So, repeating ua with/without urine culture with carefully collected urine specimen as instructed is advised if deemed necessary. ...Read more

I got my CBC and Urinalysis results back. I have no RBC or WBC in my urine but I have trace occult blood in the urine. What could be the be the cause?

I got my CBC and Urinalysis results back. I have no RBC or WBC in my urine but I have trace occult blood in the urine. What could be the be the cause?

Some ideas: A few red cells may have lysed in a dilute urine. This may be myoglobin or free hemoglobin from your exercising. There may have been contamination if it was your time of month. Or it may be a lab error. Your physician may decide to just watch it, or repeat the test. ...Read more

Hi I received a urinalysis test result with abnormal +2 ketones, +1 blood, 2+ leukocyte esterase, and above high normal 2+ WBC. No bacteria seen.?

Urinalysis: The ketones may have been because you were fasting when collecting the urine, or perhaps you are diabetic and blood sugar not in good control. The leukocytes were probably from vaginal secretions unless you had a clean assisted midstream catch urine. You do not say if you have any symptoms. Lab values without a clinical context are not very valuable. ...Read more

Why was UA done?: 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 person can have urinary infection and not have symptoms. Please discuss the results with the doctor who ordered the test.

Follow it: Especially if you're a weekend athlete or had exerted yourself. Myoglobin from your exercised muscle may be producing the bogus positive for blood. With 0-2 red cells in the sediment, it's not something to worry about. ...Read more

What does RBC rare WBC rare mean on a urinalysis?

OK, but...: Rbc (red blood cell) and wbc (white blood cell) can be seen in the urine. The significance of their presence, in part, depends on the number. "rare " rbc and "rare wbc"in the urine are most likely not significant, unless you are having symptoms. Alternatively, mhas than 3 to 5 rbc in a urine specimen is significant, and needs explanation. Ibuprofen, when taken in excess, can harm the kidneys. ...Read more

Had recent urinalysis with wbc 3/ ul and rbc 5/ul with no further action. Is it ok? What does ul reading correlate to HPF

You're fine: UL (microliters) and HPF (high power fields) are both semi-quantitative attempts to estimate quantities of various things that may be present in urine that don't really need precise quantitation. Of the two, HPF is more meaningful, since how much of this-or-that is present per volume is most dependent just on how much water your drank. Your results aren't worrisome. ...Read more

What does microcytic rbcs in urinalysis mean protein and wbcs were normal?

What does microcytic rbcs in urinalysis mean protein and wbcs were normal?

Likely mechanical,,,: This likely comes from a mechanical issue where blood cells pass through the glomerulus and tubules and get damaged, so they get dysmorphic features, but they usually are doughnut shaped, not microcytic. This happens in glomerulonephritis or inflammation from infection or autoimmune diseases. It can also be due to a bleeding/hemolytic issue from heart valve, etc. Or ureter issue (stones, etc.). ...Read more
