Is a spesific urine gravity of 1.030 normal?

Is a spesific urine gravity of 1.030 normal?

Sort of: This high a specific gravity of the urine means you should be drinking more fluids. The urine is considered concentrated at this value. Water is the best and will help you maintain a healthy state of hydration. ...Read more

Urine (Definition)

Urine is the product of the kidneys, which is produced to eliminate the waste products of metabolism, manage body fluid balance, &maintain acid-base balance. 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

1.045 specifc gravity in my urine. What does it mean?

1.045 specifc gravity in my urine. What does it mean?

Concentrated: That is at the high end of the measurement. Water is 1.000 if my lab memory is correct. If you drink some water, the test will be less. ...Read more

Specific gravity urine is low. 1.002. What does this mean. Does it mean i'm not drink enough fluids?

Specific gravity urine is low. 1.002. What does this mean. Does it mean i'm not drink enough fluids?

Low specific gravity: A low urine specific gravity (sg) means you are not excreting a concentrated urine, one of the causes of that may be that you were drinking a large amount of fluid. The reasons for your low sg are difficult to interpret without knowing your blood results. ...Read more

Urine test showed Specific Gravity 1.010 and the normal was 1.011. Other results normal. What does that mean?

Urine test showed Specific Gravity 1.010 and the normal was 1.011. Other results normal. What does that mean?

TheGravityofYour...: A specific gravity of 1.010 is very close to the fluids in your blood vessels(not the blood cells).So in the urine, that means the kidneys aren't working to save any fluid (mostly water).This could be a normal response to drinking a lot of fluids or a sign that the kidneys aren't doing their job.Depends on what else is going on with you.If you feel healthy then it's probably nothing to worry about ...Read more

What does qns in case of urine specific gravity means ?N my urine pH is acidic

What does qns in case of urine specific gravity means ?N my urine pH is acidic

Not enough to test: Qns translates to quantity not sufficient. It means there was not enough volume of the sample for the test to be run buy the method the lab uses to confirm the result. ...Read more

I am 21 female. Urine test shows specific gravity- 1010 & Epithelial cells- 3-5/hpf. Is this normal?

I am 21 female. Urine test shows specific gravity- 1010 & Epithelial cells- 3-5/hpf.
Is this normal?

Normal: Your urine is fairly dilute with a SG of 1.010. Epthelial cells are quite normal in a female. These came from your vagina. There would likely be less or no epithelial cells if your labia were widely separated & you caught a mid-stream specimen. No RBCS, WBCs or bacteria is excellent. Good Luck, no cause for any concern ...Read more

Why post hypophysectomy via transphenoifal approach nurse should check urine specific gravity every 4 hrs?

Diabetes insipidus: After a transphenoidal surgery, you can have a disruption of the production of a pituitary hormone called vasopressin, which normally controls the amount of water that is filtered through the kidneys into your urine. This can result in losing too much water in your urine, a condition called "diabetes insipidus", resulting in diluted urine which can be measured by checking the specific gravity. ...Read more

A urine having a pH of 9.0 with many uric acid crystals, clear and a specific gravity of 1.010. What could be the findings?

A urine having a pH of 9.0 with many uric acid crystals, clear and a specific gravity of 1.010. What could be the findings?

Repeat it: Uric acid crystals are surprising in an alkaline urine, and a ph of 9.0 in a person not symptomatic with a proteus infection would suggest the urine specimen wasn't sent to the lab or tested in a timely way. ...Read more

Hi i my 2 yrs old son urine analysis test showed 25(1.4) absobic acid, 1.030 Specific gravity and ph 6. what does this mean?

Hi i my 2 yrs old son urine analysis test showed 25(1.4) absobic acid, 1.030 Specific gravity and  ph 6. what does this mean?

Here are some...: The findings from his UA indicate he has a good functions of kidneys so to have high urine sp gr of 1.030 and suggest possible taking vitamin-C. Clinically, that is okay, but giving him more oral fluid intake in moderation is advisable. So, don't worry as long as he has been behaving well in daily activity. More? Consult to his pediatrician. ...Read more

Sr creatinine(0.91mg/dl). All other urine analysis is normal. specific gravity is low 1.005. What is the significance of this.

Sr creatinine(0.91mg/dl). All other urine analysis is normal. specific gravity is low 1.005. What is the significance of this.

Urine specific grav: Specific gravity is a measure of the "other" things in your urine besides plain water, and can include electrolytes, proteins, and sugars or other chemicals. The fact that your level is very low would indicate that you have been drinking lots of fluids so the urine is dilute, or your kidneys won't concentrate the urine by excreting electrolytes. Sr. Creatinine should check nl range for lab. ...Read more
