Hi my mom just did a nlood test and the results are HDL 35 Mg/dl LDL 103Mg/dl Albumin (+) (traces in urine) Are they related in some way please help?

No: The results of cholesterol in the blood have no relation with the urine results. HDL is borderline low and LDL is slightly high, depending on the reference ranges of the lab you used. Also you did not mention how high the total cholesterol is, and if there is family history of heart disease. Trace albumin in the urine is commonly seen, not significantmay need repeat if your doctor is concerned.

The blood is first filtered by the kidneys, and the composition of the resulting fluid is then altered depending on the body's needs. It is composed of mostly water, and breakdown products from blood cells impart ...Read more

What mean that urine albumin trace pus cells 12-15 epith. Cells+++ crystals amorphous bacteria present?

What mean that urine albumin trace pus cells 12-15 epith. Cells+++ crystals amorphous bacteria present?

Urinalysis: Trace albumin means little or nothing. The presence of trace pus cells is probably from a poorly collected specimen contaminated by vaginal secretions, as suggested by the epithelial cells. The amorphous bacteria is also a result of contamination. To be effective in helping diagnosing UTI this should be an assisted clean midstream urine specimen.

My urine report shows albumin -A trace. What does it mean?

Not significant: Trace Albumin in a urine specimen is usually not a significant finding. It means a very small amount of protein shoes up in the specimen.

My husband has developed diabeties recently and has albumin traces in urine? Is it normal for a diabetic to show albumin traces? Urine acetone nil

Microalbuminuria: Above a certain threshold, Albumin in the urine is a marker of diabetic kidney damage (nephropathy). However, it can be many years before it progresses to kidney failure, and the progression of diabetic nephropathy can be halted. Control blood glu (a1c less than 7), control bp, use an ace-i or arb (even if BP normal), and control other risk factors such as weight, lipids.

My wife is pregnant & her urine report shows albumin trace. What does it mean?

Not significant: The presence of trace albumin on a urine dipstick would not confirm kidney disease. In early pregnancy, protein in the urine (proteinuria) suggests kidney disease, and in late pregnancy when accompanied by hypertension, it can suggest preeclampsia. In early pregnancy you need confirmation of 24 hour urine protein. Please keep all prenatal visit appointments and you should be fine. Hope that helps

Meaning of a person has "traces" of albumin in their urine?

Kidney inflammation: Normal kidneys are not supposed to lose protein. Albumin is a form of protein. If you are losing traces of albumin, it means the membranes in the kidney that usually retain and hold the protein from spilling into the urine has become leaky, which is usually a result of inflammation and damage. See a doctor to run more tests to prevent the condition from worsening.

What does it mean if you have trace of albumin in your urine?

What does it mean if you have trace of albumin in your urine?

Trace = small amount: Protein/albumin is not normally found in urine. The term trace in urinalysis means small amount. A protein trace in urine = 10 mg/100 ml giving a slightly hazy appearance to the urine. Albumin is the most common protein found in the bloodstream; it is finding its way into the urine by some means. Other clinical info is needed with evaluation by your doctor to narrow down the cause. Good luck!

My urine analysis shows pus cells PLENTY albumin SLIGHT TRACE epithelial cells 0_ 1 help dr..

See below: 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, you appear to have urinary infection and should see your doctor for a prescription.

I found fol thing in my urine DR RBC 2-3/HPF amorphous urates +/HPF Albumin Traced besides this found Triglycerdies more i.e 285 mg/dl what should I d?

Not: Enough information to draw any clinical conclusions. Mild elevation in RBC in urine and elevated Triglycerides without knowing if it is post or pre meals or the rest of the lipid panel. Discuss the results with the ordering physician

PCP: A primary care physician would be the best place in which to begin this evaluation. A family practitioner or general internist will assess her and refer her onwards if they cannot work this out themselves.

Possible Diabetes: Frequent urination and albumin in the urine could represent Diabetes and/or a early kidney problem. I might have expected glucose in urine if Diabetes but not necessarily. Either way, you should be further evaluated by your MD.

Diabetes?: Why was the urine done, could be an infection but the glucose suggests that his blood sugar is high. The albumin can mean some kidney disease. You GP can work it out with all the information

I have kidney stones of 3.4 n 3.8mm. In 1st urine test albumin is +, and after 10 days again it show albumin is traced... Is it normal or any serious?

Here are some...: Most likely, the trace- (+) finding of albumin is not clinically significant, i.e., not serious, but annual urinalysis for next 3-5 yrs as follow-ups for comparison is reasonable. As to the kidney stone of 3.4x3.8 mm, you may leave it alone as long as not bothering you since the odd to pass a stone of this size is high. More? Ask treating doc for personal specific counseling timely.

What does it mean to have a trace amount of albumin and occult blood, ketone boldies and bacteria present, epithelial cells 10-15 im urine test.?

What does it mean to have a trace amount of albumin and occult blood, ketone boldies and bacteria present, epithelial cells 10-15 im urine test.?

Contaminated: The epithelial cells tell me that there was some contamination of your sample. Just being a woman makes it more difficult to give a clean-catch urine. You may want to repeat it, perhaps next year or earlier if you physician advises.

These molecules transport other molecules which don't dissolve in water very well. But its main function is to regulate the amount of water in the blood. Another type of Albumin is the ...Read more
