Male/42/w/30yrs multiple renal stones (calcium oxalate)why do my recent nonobstructing stones cause hydronephrosis/10outof10 pain/hematuria& no uti?

Oxalate stones: Are often the result of crohn's disease related to the lack of absorption of bile salts in the diseased ileum. You shouldn't have hydronephrosis if there is no obstruction but certainly they can cause lots of pain and hematuria. Hope you are improving. ...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

Urinalysis indicates few calcium oxalate. What does it mean for a 13-yr. Old? Is this caused by eating eggplant or by not drinking enough water?

Urinalysis indicates few calcium oxalate. What does it mean for a 13-yr. Old? Is this caused by eating eggplant or by not drinking enough water?

Here are some...: Incidentally seeing few calcium oxalate crystals in urinalysis is common, but usually carries no clinical significance in non-stone formers. So, I would not worry about it for now, but focus on his general healthcare with quality lifestyle without overindulgence and obsession. More on lifestyle? Peruse the articles in http://formefirst.

Trace hematuria, and proteinuria on some ua. Blood work shows normal kidney function. Ct w/contrast, xray kub, and us all normal. Ideas?

I bet you're fine: I don't believe in even working up trace proteinuria. Even visible hematuria with otherwise normal labs and imaging isn't a cause for alarm; one person in maybe 100 has thin-gbm non-disease and except for slightly poorer hearing than the next person, these folks are otherwise normal. ...Read more

Trace hematuria, and proteinuria on some ua dipstick. Blood work shows normal kidney function. Ct w/contrast, xray kub, and us all normal. Ideas?

Benign glomerular dz: Hematuria and proteinuria suggests a glomerular cause (kidney filter) since the urologic studies are negative. Kidney biopsy would be diagnostic but makes no sense since risk of progressive renal failure is very low as long as the urine protein is less than 500 mg a day. Diagnosis would include IgA nephropathy, thin basement membrane disease among others. As long as normal function u r ok. ...Read more

In urine analysis, hemoglobin --- trace, red blood cells --- occasional, becteria --- few, calcium oxalate cryst --- +2. What does they mean?

Crystalluria: Concerning the crystals and the blood, this can be due to poor water intake and a predisposition to develop crystals and kidney stones. For bacteria, sometomes it is a simple contamination other times it is urine infection (but usually you have other signs and symptoms). ...Read more

In my last urinalyses, they found "occ calcium oxalate". In the one before, they found "2+ amorphous". What does this mean and should I be concerned?

In my last urinalyses, they found "occ calcium oxalate". In the one before, they found "2+ amorphous". What does this mean and should I be concerned?

Not necessarily: Calcium oxalate crystals in urine are quite common and although they are often the substance of kidney stones this does not necessarily occur. Amorphous material probably has little if any significance. Relax. Enjoy life. ...Read more

Recent abdo/pelvic MRI shows simple cyst left kidney. Could it cause: ua over 18mth high pyuria, occasional haematuria, proteinuria & infection?

Recent abdo/pelvic MRI shows simple cyst left kidney. Could it cause: ua over 18mth high pyuria, occasional haematuria, proteinuria & infection?

Simple cyst: Simple renal cysts are relatively common. If on MRI or contrast enhanced ct or even a good ultrasound, they meet the criteria for simple cyst, there's really no reason for concern. Solitary cysts of the kidney (of this nature) are not associated with the symptoms and findings you described. ...Read more

My urine has large urine amorphous sediment, small urine calcium oxalate crystals, small bacteria, small mucus, trace protein and sp grav 1.030?

My urine has large urine amorphous sediment, small urine calcium oxalate crystals, small bacteria, small mucus, trace protein and sp grav 1.030?

Sounds normal: All these are common and normal. Your urine is quite concentrated, probably due to limited fluid intake before it was collected; this probably explains the trace protein, which is the only thing mentioned that might be considered slightly abnormal. Discuss with your doctor, but I see no cause for worry. ...Read more

What causes calcium oxalate crystals out of your body?

What causes calcium oxalate crystals out of your body?

Depends: Many people make innumerable tiny crystals that continually pass out in the urine. If they stick together, the conglomerate becomes a kidney or ureteral stone. If it isn't too large (generally up to 5mm), it may pass with urine. If it does not, or if it is large, a procedure may be necessary. Stone formers are best served by preventing more stones by hydration +/- medication. ...Read more

The hospital found calcium oxalate crystals in my urine. What does this mean?

Here's...: Incidentally seeing few calcium oxalate crystals in routine urinalysis isn't uncommon at all, largely this is considered as unremarkable with no clinical importance as long as being free from stone passage. So, it is a good practice always referring to individual medical background before jumping into the pit of unnecessary worry and anxiety. More? Ask a doctor. ...Read more

My urine test shows calcium oxalate (+). Do I have kidney stone? What Diet to follow and what to avoid? Is it serious?

Kidney stones: Symptoms that may suggest kidney stones are : pain one side of the belly, nausea, wanting to urinate frequently, pain in lower part of belly, blood in urine etc. Do you have any symptoms? Just presence of oxalate in urine might mean that your diet is high in oxalate.

Need evaluation...: From what reported, you have significant microhematuria.

For someone at your age, a run of evaluation with imaging study (ct. Ivp) and cystoscopy is reasonable, but likelihood to find something significant probably not more than 3-5 %. ...Read more

I have agn when 8y/o because of throat ifxn. I had hematuria. Recovered 1wk tx. No hematuria and protenuria in urinalysis after 10 years. Is it iga?

I have agn when 8y/o because of throat ifxn. I had hematuria. Recovered 1wk tx. No hematuria and protenuria in urinalysis after 10 years. Is it iga?

No. It's not.: If you're not having even microhematuria now, you don't have IgA nephropathy. You are 23 years old now, and you had acute glomerulonephritis when you were 8. That's fifteen years of health. If you have the obsessive idea that you have acute glomerulonephritis and are seriously sick, your physician can teach you tricks -- such unwanted thoughts are common among health-focused people. Best wishes. ...Read more

Can 15 mm stone calcium oxalate be dissolve naturally?

Can 15 mm stone calcium oxalate be dissolve naturally?

Kidney stone.: Kidney stones up to 5mm in size will predictably pass on their own. You would just drink plenty of water so you produce a lot of urine, dilate those ureters and allow the stone to pass. It may hurt while it's on its way out, but it'll pass. A 15mm stone isn't going anywhere, and if it decides to try to leave you it's going to get stuck. You need a Urologist. ...Read more

With uric acid and calcium oxalate kidney stones at what pH level should you work towards?

With uric acid and calcium oxalate kidney stones at what pH level should you work towards?

Not the key: For uric acid stones, you will want to look at ways of managing uric acid production, perhaps with medication. For both stone types, keeping the urine dilute is more important than trying to adjust the pH. Acid urine promotes uric acid stones while alkaline urine promotes calcium oxalate stones. Don't make this your focus. ...Read more

Proteinuria (Definition)

Proteinuria means the presence of excess of serum proteins in the urine. The excess protein in the urine often causes the urine to become foamy. Up to 150 mg a day of protein may be excreted by a normal person most of this being tamm-horsfall protein. Between 150-300 mg/day may be considered microalbuminuria and greater than 300mg/day is abnormal and ...Read more

Blood In Urine (Definition)

Hematuria is the presence of blood in the urine. When you can see the blood, it's called gross hematuria. When the blood can only be seen under a microscope it is known as microscopic hematuria. Hematuria can be caused by kidney stones, kidney infections, urinary tract infections, an enlarged prostate, cancer, certain medications, and ...Read more
