What does it mean when there is WBCs in my R/M urine test...but no bacterial growth after 24hour incubation in C/S test?
Maybe nothing: You should be evaluated for tuberculosis since you are in the Middle East. But I would recommend obtaining a Catheterized urine specimen. Most of the time WBCs without growth is from improperly collected urine specimen with vaginal contamination at the time if collection. ...Read more

Did the doctor tell you to get another urine specimen in a few days, based on her symptoms? ...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?
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

Recent Blood tests showed extreme elevation of WBC. But urine test yesterday showed NO Esinophils. Dx: Esinophilia...Is none in urine, good?
Get care: I don't know what you mean by "extreme" elevation of white cells in your blood but that has nothing to do with eosinophils in urine. The doctor who ordered the blood count should address the leukocytosis (high WBC). Make sure you get help because there are some serious causes of "extreme high WBC in blood". Good luck. ...Read more

A few white blood cells in the urine of a female patient is very common, especially if the urine sample was not collected in particular manner. If a physician is interested in getting urine from a woman's bladder that has not been contaminated by passing through the vagina, which normally contains bacteria and white blood cells, the sample should be collected by asking the woman to use a antiseptic towelette to wipe the vagina while spreading the inner labia, then to urinate into the toilet for a second, stop urinating, then urinate into the specimen cup.
If you didn't collect the urine in this manner, then it's more than likely that the white blood cells are from the vagina, not the bladder as are the bacteria and the leuk esterase. If it is noted that there were squamous epithelial cells in the urine, then it's even more likely, because those cells are found only in the vagina, not the bladder.
Back pain is a common symptom, and occasionally it is the sole symptom of a urinary tract infection, but not usually. Most of the time people with utis will have pain on urination or frequency of urination, fevers, or pain on the sides of their back.
If you have any of these (fever, urinary pain or frequency, or pain on the sides of your back) or if the middle back pain persists for more than a week, you should see a doctor.
But the biggest thing here is, the physician who ordered the urine test should be available and eager to answer your question. ...Read more
Last year during urine test. My WBC was out of range. Doc never told me. (Standard Range WBC'S, UA/HPF 0 - 5 /HPF) (My Range 11-25) Follow up?
I'm having a urine test the result of red blood cell is 1-3 normal is 0-1 hpf, and my pus cell WBC is 4-6 normal is 0-2 hpf what it is mean?
Do not worry: Those numbers are very low and likely are not significant. If you are having symptoms with your urination, let your doctor know to ask if he suspects an infection, but with those numbers it would be unlikely. Those numbers can also be affected by dehydration, so make sure you drink plenty of water daily. Also I see you take ibuprofen, make sure you are not over-dosing as this can cause bleeding. ...Read more

I did urine test last week. Micro results: RBC (0-1), WBC (0-1), Epithelial (0-1), Bacteria + (few), Ca. Oxalate + (few). What does it mean? Thanks!
UA: These findings are not diagnostic of anything, a Urinalysis is usually done for urinary complaints, the few findings you related do not indicate an infection. The calcium oxalate crystals are excreted in the urine and make up the most common kidney stones. The rest of the urinalysis would be helpful, but these are not indicative of anything. ...Read more
