Diagnostic overall result for complete blood exam is normal; urine exam is normal. But urinalysis says 'trace' under sugar content. What does it mean?

Repeat the test: Trace sugar in the urine is not worrisome by itself. It may represent the onset of diabetes. You should have it repeated along with glucose measurements performed while fasting to rule out diabetes. As with any subtle abnormal lab test, it should always be repeated to make sure it is not a false positive. ...Read more

Urinalysis reads no RBC but trace blood.  Not understanding how can you have trace blood but no red blood cells & what does that mean?

Other things..: The test that is looking for "blood" detects things other than just blood - for instance, myoglobin, which is a breakdown product from cells and muscle. That is why if you test "positive" for blood, you have to look under a microscope and see if there are red blood cells present . Other tests can then get more specific into the other reasons "trace blood" may appear on the dip. ...Read more

I got urinalysis results..and what does Blood UA mean? It says Trace Intact..whats this all mean?

Urinalysis: The dipstick showed the presence of a trace amount of blood but this could be a contaminant from the vaginal area. Recheck another urine specimen being very careful to avoid contamination by using a clean catch technique. Also request a microscopic analysis which will show any red blood cells present in the urine. If there are no red blood cells, you're ok. Discuss this with your physician ...Read more

On a recent urinalysis, under blood it came back as trace-intact. What does that mean? It shows up every once in awhile.

Here are some...: Trace blood on chem-strip urine test is not uncommonly, and microscopic urinalysis should follow to verify if degree of microhematuria is clinically significant or not. In practice, microscopic urinalysis shows 3-5 red blood cells per high power field is significant. Such patients will need further evaluation with imaging studies for kidneys, cystoscopy, etc. More specific detail? Ask Doc timely. ...Read more

Likely nonspecific.: Protein in the urine can be nonspecific, or indicate a condition such as renal infections, diabetes mellitus, jaundice, or hyperthyroidism. Blood in the urine can be from trauma, stones, infection, or a catheter, or if there is painless hematuria, or blood in the urine, it could indicate bladder cancer. ...Read more

Yes i had a urinalysis and it said i have a trace of uleukocytes, uepithelial cells are few, bacteria rare, and i have blood in my urine, What could this mean? The doctor told me to drink more water.

Then that urine needs to be sent for a urine culture and if positive treat for UTI. If neg and you still have blood then need to see urologist for further evaluation ...Read more

Probably nothing: This is a scant amount of blood and is probably a false positive test. If you have no urinary symptoms (burning, frequency, hesitancy, or pain on urination) I would repeat in a couple of weeks. I assume you have stopped menstruating. ...Read more

My urinalysis showed trace of blood and large amount of leukocytes and I was told to reschedule for another test. Why do I need it again? Am I sick?

Confirming results : The presence of large leukocytes esterace levels in the urine indicates the presence of white blood cells in the urine. However it is possible that the urine sample was contaminated with skin cells or that the results were by dipstick only. Oftentimes it is helpful to get a repeat urinalysis with a microscopic exam to prove that blood and white cells are present and then other tests if needed ...Read more
