How normal is a urine pH level of 5?

How normal is a urine pH level of 5?

In normal range: The ph scale measures acidity and basicity. Higher ph means the urine is more basic and lower ph means it is more acidic. Normal range for urine can be between 4.5 - 8.0 according to most sources. Medication and various medical conditions can affect ph, including multiple issues at one time making deciphering the meaning of the ph without more info difficult.

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

My urine PH level was 7.5 and the urine looked really cloudy what does thie indicate?

My urine PH level was 7.5 and the urine looked really cloudy what does thie indicate?

Akaline urine: May indicate risk or possible UTI. Though full dipstick or urinalysis is needed to reach any conclusions. The cloudy urine is associated with increased specific gravity and leukocytes may indicate concentration and UTI. Drinking plenty of fluids and treatment with ABX may be indicated in such a case

If I took a drug with a pH level of 3. aspirin for example...what would be my resulting blood and urine pH levels? 7.4 and 5.2 respectively?

If I took a drug with a pH level of 3. aspirin for example...what would be my resulting blood and urine pH levels? 7.4 and 5.2 respectively?

Same pH as B4 Dose: One dose of aspirin is not enough to alter your body's pH. The human body has remarkable ability to buffer to protect itself from rapid or extreme pH changes (as long as there are no underlying illnesses such as diabetes, renal dysfunction...)

My 4 year old son has urine ph of 8 and sp gravity of 1.005 everything else normal in analysis. Is the ph level serious?

My 4 year old son has urine ph of 8 and sp gravity of 1.005 everything else normal in analysis. Is the ph level serious?

Likely diet related.: If everything else (growth, blood pressure, etc) are fine, high pH is probably related to diet, as many fruits, even if acidic to taste, turn urine alkaline.

Urine pH is 5.5 is that acidic?

Urine pH is 5.5 is that acidic?

Yes: Acidic is ph less than 7, while ph of 7 and above is alkaline. Normal urine ph is 4.6 to 8.0. Normal value ranges may vary slightly among different laboratories. Some labs use different measurements or test different samples. Talk to your doctor about the meaning of your specific test results.

What does a urine pH of 9 mean?

Basic: The ph scale measures acidity and basicity. Higher ph means the urine is more basic and lower ph means it is more acidic. Normal range for urine can be between 4.5 - 8.0 according to most sources.

My urine pH was 9.0. What does this mean? Everything else was norm.

My urine pH was 9.0. What does this mean? Everything else was norm.

It's not normal.: There are several possibilities but a ph of 9.0 is very high. Possibilities include: diet breathing issues uti gi issues toxicities medications you're taking (including supplements and otc meds) renal issues like renal tubular acidosis you really need to have it checked again and compare it to blood work.

5.0 urine pH and trace occult blood. Is this normal?

5.0 urine pH and trace occult blood. Is this normal?

Depends: 5.0 urine ph probably not an issue. Trace occult blood should be investigated and explained.

What does high urine pH 7.5-8.5 that fluctuates a lot mean? Is it bc I drink a lot of water or systemic alkadosis?

Alkalotic urine: Why are you so preoccupied with the ph of your urine? It seems that you are having repeated urine analyses to assess your urine's ph. Water intake does not, per se, make your urine alkalotic. Causes of an alkalotic urine are: urinary tract obstruction, pyloric obstruction, salicylate intoxication, renal tubular acidosis, chronic renal failure and respiratory failure. Do you have one of these?

Urine pH was 9. Past results: 7.5 in 2/13, 6.5 in 3/13 and 7 in 10/13. Likely lab error, diet or something else? All other labs were normal.

Specimen problem: We check the ph to see whether the urine was contaminated by urea-splitting microbes that produced ammonia. Evidently in this case it did. Don't worry about your urine ph and ignore anyone who tells you that you should.

Does urine pH typically jump up and down throughout the day?

Does urine pH typically jump up and down throughout the day?

Yes: Very much so. We've just visited; get some pH strips and have fun. You'll discover the tremendous variability -- it's your kidneys doing fine-tuning so you don't have to worry about your blood pH and can do the things you enjoy.

My urine pH is 5.What are the causes? It there any link between it and panic attacks?

My urine pH is 5.What are the causes? It there any link between it and panic attacks?

No, cover with PCP: A renal consult might be wise since the causes could range from nothing to worry about to something that needs to be looked into now. Pcp=primary care physician which is another way of saying family doctor.

My urine pH has dropped from 7.0 to 5.5, is this normal. (Shortness of breath and palpitations as well)?

My urine pH has dropped from 7.0 to 5.5, is this normal. (Shortness of breath and palpitations as well)?

Yes: Urine pH measures urine acidity and ranges from 5 to 7. Animal protein is the major source of acid in diet and will result in low urine pH. Vegetarians usually have U pH in higher range. Your symptoms suggest anxiety/hyperventilation which raise blood pH, and hence U pH.

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.

What is cause of high urine ph? It's always high normal (alkaline) or out of range on high side. Eat lots of fruits. Something to worry about?

What is cause of high urine ph? It's always high normal (alkaline) or out of range on high side. Eat lots of fruits. Something to worry about?

Usually related. ..: Alkaline urine ph of 7-8 is usually related with uti, vegetarian diet, metabolic alkalosis caused by vomiting, the use of steroids or diuretic drugs, or the overuse of antacids or laxatives., and bears no harm as long as having no UTI and being comfortable; if so, no need to worry. But in doubt, check with doc timely for individual condition.

What could cause a urine pH of 5.0 consistently with normal cmp blood test!?

What could cause a urine pH of 5.0 consistently with normal cmp blood test!?

That is normal.: Slightly acidic urine is completely normal. Many of the waste products that kidneys get rid of are acidic, and so urine ph usually is also. Normal urin ph ranges from 5.0 to 8.0, with 7.0 being neutral.
