Uti Usually Have Protien In Urine
My male friend has blood in his urine, but no pain associated with it. He was diagnosed with a uti, but the test revealved a high protien count, ideas?
Proteinuria: You should have him go to a nephrologist. Proteinuria (p) is not a normal finding. He needs a 24 hour urine collection for creatinine clearance and protein to see what his kidney function is and how much p he has. If the blood work does not give answer to the cause of his p, and he has more than 1 gram of p/day, he may need a renal biopsy to arrive at a diagnosis and a prognosis of his p. ...Read more

Urine dipstick shows leukocytes, protein and presence of blood. I have no other symptoms of a UTI. Is this something else?
Urinary evaluation: Well this is clearly an abnormal finding -so a professional evaluation is warranted. I would be looking for a full urinalysis -not just a dipstick.

I would call your primary doc and set up an apt-preferably this week. If you get urinary symptoms-Urgent Care ...Read more
6yrs old girlhas never had uti her urine test said 30 next to protein and a month what could this be should I be worried she is a lil dehydrated?
How accurate are urine dip sticks? Did one at Dr office and showed protein in urine. Can it mean uti? Dr taking it to lab for culture.
Quite accurate: Trace protein in the urine is never worrisome by itself. +1 may be worth a workup. +2 is worth investigating. The usual cause is orthostatic proteinuria -- if you're well otherwise, see if your first-voided morning specimen is free of protein, and if it is, you know you're someone who gets proteinuria from standing up -- no big deal. Best wishes. ...Read more

Skin flora: Skin flora are bacteria that are normally found living on our skin. When present in a urine culture, it typically means that the specimen was contaminated (e.g., the urine touched something before it got into the sterile specimen cup). I would recommend a repeat culture, using a catheterized specimen if possible. ...Read more
