See below: Wbc are usually due to infection, but non-infectious causes of inflammation, such as interstitial cystitis, radiation injury and stones can lead to WBC in urine. Rbc in urine may be due to stones, tumors and lesions in the glomeruli in the kidney. See this site for information and discuss the issue with the doctor who ordered the tests.

Recheck: If culture was negative then there isn't any uti- but I would have repeat u/a and cx of the urine. If blood still present then she needs u/s of kidneys and possibly a cystoscopy. This can be from kidney stone or other more concerning infection. In rare cases you must concern yourself with tumors. ...Read more

Check/know your Crea: You should find out your blood creatinine level. If it is more than 1.5mg, that means your kidneys are not functioning normally.

What does RbC 7mm3 and WBC 22mm3 in urine analysis for. 65 years old woman mean? Urine culture was done also, no growth.

Urinalysis: This probably means absolutely nothing, but the numbers and the way you express them suggests that you are not recording them correctly. Without knowing what your symptoms are or why the UA was done it is impossible to know what else you should do. Would also need to know how this was collected because in women results may be skewed by vaginal discharge contamination. ...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

Urine ph is greater than 9, feel like I have UTI, but no bacteria, wbc or rbc.

Urine ph is greater than 9, feel like I have UTI, but no bacteria, wbc or rbc.

How do you know pH?: If someone has done a urinalysis on you, they should have an idea of whether the urine is very dilute which could make it hard to see bacteria and cells. Such a high pH certainly suggests infection with a particular bacterium. If you do NOT have a UTI, a vaginal infection could cause some of the same symptoms. ...Read more

Probably not bad: Why was your urine sample taken? Did the sample report an excessive amount of epithelial cells? Do you have any pain urinating or is there pain in your bikini area? Answers to the questions are needed. If the urine was just part of a routine visit for annual female exam or physical, the urine findings probably do not represent infection or disease. If worried, have MD run a culture on a new sample ...Read more

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
