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

On urine test results, urine hemoglobin=trace-intact, urine microscopic = indicated, wbc/hpf=0-3, rbc/hpf=0-3. What do these results & terms mean?

On urine test results, urine hemoglobin=trace-intact, urine microscopic = indicated, wbc/hpf=0-3, rbc/hpf=0-3. What do these results & terms mean?

Normal: The WBC and rbc are referring to the number of white blood cells and red blood cells seen in a range of microscopic fields of sampled by the lab technician. The number of these cells (0 to 3) for both types of cell is within the normal limits expected. These normal, scattered red cells are enough to cause a trace of hemoglobin on the chemistry test. So these are all normal results. ...Read more

Nothing: Especially if you're hungry, you can have +1 ketones and it's normal. You say you have cirrhosis and it is no surprise if you've got a bit of extra conjugated bilirubin in your blood spilling into your urine. I hope the cirrhosis can be addressed; if it's hepatitis C, perhaps you can get a cure with today's meds; if alcohol, perhaps abstinence can reverse it. Be strong & stay proactive. ...Read more

What can microscopic blood in urine mean?

Hematuria...: Per aua guidelines of 2012, if you have >3 red blood cells in a urine sample and are over age 35, you should see a urologist for a work up. If you are younger than 35, the urologist may choose to observe you or work you up, depending on your risk factors. The standard work up consists of a triple-phase ct scan and cystoscopy (a camera in the bladder). This standardized work up determines cause. ...Read more

Urine sample (with stringy floating white pieces) has TRACE bacteria and MODERATE leukocytes. No blood, nitrites, ketones, bilirubin. Diagnosis?

That is probably a: normal looking urine, with some asymptomatic bacteriuria (presence of bacteria without causing infection). The long stringy white stuff is protein or casts that have polymerized in the urine. If you have symptoms of UTI, then you can be treated, but if not then you do not need immediate treatment. Repeat urinalysis for protein presence may be recommended at this time. ...Read more

Chemical test: 10-25 leuko/ul in urine, microscopic test: 2-3 leuko cells per field, is it normal?

It depends!: Pyuria would be more than 5 white cells per high power field; that being said, even with pyuria, the diagnosis of UTI depends on the presence of symptoms (the burning or pain during urination, frequency, or incontinence). Guidelines clearly state not to treat asymptomatic bacteriuria or pyuria, except in very specific cases. ...Read more

That this is so slight is very good, but get a repeat ua next exam or go in sooner if there's bloody urine as that might mean a kidney or bladder issue. Best of luck. ...Read more

I have a microscopic urine WBC of 30...Is this considered a severe kidney infection .

UTI: The urine white cells indicate inflammation in the urinary tract. Most of the time it is due to a simple bladder infection. However, if you have fever, vomiting, flank pain, or confusion it could be a more serious infection involving the kidney. White cells may indicate other types of inflammation too, so it's bed to see your doctor for the correct diagnosis and treatment. ...Read more

Can HIV urine seep through microscopic pores in the palm of the hand and cause infection?

Can HIV urine seep through microscopic pores in the palm of the hand and cause infection?

HIGHLY unlikely.: It is highly unlikely that someone would acquire an HIV infection from urine via intact skin. If the urine contained visible blood and the skin had an open wound, then there might be a small but real chance of infection. If the urine was not bloody and the skin did not have an open wound, then the chances of infection are immeasurably small. ...Read more

Is there such thing as a ultrasound for kidney? I have microscopic hematuria. Urine 500++

Yes: Ultrasound of the kidney is relatively quick, painless, and uses no ionizing radiation, so it is often the first imaging study performed to evaluate the kidneys. It may identify a potential cause of the hematuria. If it doesn't, further tests may need to be done. ...Read more

60 yrs Asymptomatic Microscopic hematuria urine 2.5 yrs. No protein BP low. Urologist did cystoscopy. Neg. said common. do I need to do more? RBC 3.84

It can be benign: Some people are prone to have a few RBCs in their urine. As long as your Bladder and Kidney are checked out to be healthy and free from any tumor or growth, then you can ignore it. I would suggest that you get your kidneys checked out with a CT scan of the abdomen to be sure that there is no tumor there. ...Read more

That's not possible: to answer without an exam, history, and other basic elements of a medical assessment. You do have a local doctor since these tests were requested. What does your doc say about these things and why they were checked? You have lab values, but there is no detail about how you are feeling. That's the most important part. Abnormal labs in isolation are usually meaningless. Ask your doctor ?s. ...Read more
