When a urinalysis and urine culture is performed do they always do a microscopic exam of the urine sample to check for casts?
From a Urinalysis test, a high protein count, with high(ish) numbers of squamous cells and UA hyaline casts were found. My urine has cloudy and odor.
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, squamous cells suggest contamination of urine with vaginal material and a fresh specimen should be examined. Cloudy urine that is odorous suggests an infection. Please consult your doctor for clarification. ...Read more

Proteinuria: You have proteinuria (p), that can lead to other cardiovascular problems. Patients with p have more strokes, mi's and renal failure than those without it. You can take ace-i, arb's and calcium channnel blockers like Diltiazem to reduce both BP and p. You will need to have a 24 hour urine collected to measure your kidney function and quantify how much p/day you have. See your doctor for help. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Repeat urinalysis?: The epithelial cells, mixed bacteria, and mucus alls suggest the urine was contamined with vulvar or vaginal secretions, probably not a "clean catch" midstream specimen.

Rheumatologist: These urinalysis findings are nonspecific and don't denote any kidney disease. The ANA findings are also nondiagnostic and a titer would be more meaningful. A rheumatologist would be best qualified to evaluate your symptoms and recommend any further testing depending on his or her assessment. ...Read more
