What does blood, billiruben, cast and protein in the urine mean?

What does blood, billiruben, cast and protein in the urine mean?

Huge question: Blood in urine can = kidney disease, tumor anywhere from kidney, down to urethra, urinary tract infection, blood vessel abnormality or benign. Bilirubin is urinary bile & can indicate liver disease (hepatitis) or blocked bile ducts from gallstone/s, tumor or stricture. Casts - hyaline normal, granular or cellular = kidney disease. Proteinuria - orthostatic is benign, otherwise? Kidney disease.

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

What exactly does blood & protein in urine mean when kidney test says normal?

What exactly does blood & protein in urine mean when kidney test says normal?

Blood and protein: Blood (b) in your urine (u) is an abnormal finding. Protein (p) in your urine is abnormal when it is > 80 mg/day. Your lab work may be normal when b and p first appear in your u. Do a 24 hour urine for creatinine clearance and protein and have a renal ultrasound (us). If the us doesn't show any bleeding site, have cystoscopy. If you have > 1 gram of protein/day, you may need a kidney biopsy.

I've had an electrophoresis test done, serum & urine. Results show a spike in the beta and gamma regions. No monoclonal protein. What does this mean? I have proteinuria and fsgs stage 3. I am 50

What is FSGS?: Please do not use abbreviations....They mean different things to different people. Ask your doctor to advise you about any relationship of your electrophoresis report to your underlying problem. I do not think this report is of any consequence or concern.

What does it mean if you have a trace of blood and protein in your urine?

Kidney disease: Protein goes along with the blood. It is not uncommon for female to have slight blood but at your age there are reasons such as renal disease of infection.

Trace of blood and protein in urine what does that mean?

Trace of blood and protein in urine what does that mean?

Need to repeat: If you had your period when urinalysis was done, it could have contaminated the urine sample and you should repeat the test. If this not the case, the urinalysis should still be repeated. If the blood and protein is persistent and more than trace, you should see a nephrologist who can microscopically analyze blood to see if source is kidney. If so, you should be evaluated for glomerulonephritis.

What do protein and blood in my urine mean?

What do protein and blood in my urine mean?

Blood ; protein: This means there is a small amount of some source of blood ; protein in the urine ; the meaning of this needs to be looked at with any other lab abnormalities, signs/symptoms, clinical context. If nothing else abnormal, then blood with protein is entering your urine in some way. Are there symptoms like burning with urine, flank pain, recent infection, etc? See your doctor for more assistance.

What exactly does it mean if blood, protein, and leukocytes are present in urine?

What exactly does it mean if blood, protein, and leukocytes are present in urine?

Several issues: Blood (hamturia) and leukocytes (wbc's in the urine) are common signs of a uti, and you should be evaluated and possibly treated with antibiotics. Protein could be a sign of high blood pressure, posible diabetes, or a simple finding of early kidney disease. Have yourself examined and treated as necesary and then get a follow-up urine as part of the process. Good luck.

Protein found in my urine sample. Doctor recommended I take a blood test. What does it mean to have protein in my urine? Which blood test do I take?

Many possibilities: It can mean anything from stress, or just from your physiology after you stand up for a while, or can be very serious illness. Your physician will choose the labs but you can expect a CBC and a chemical profile at a minimum.

What does 1+ protein in urine mean? I had a blood test and my dr wants me to see an nephrologist

What does 1+ protein in urine mean? I had a blood test and my dr wants me to see an nephrologist

Proteinuria: Proteinuria is a condition, not a diagnosis. It can be caused by several diseases, among them hiv, diabetes, lupus, membranous glomerulonephritis, among others. You need to see a nephrologist to have a 24 hour urine collected to assess your kidney function and how much protein your urine has in it. The nephrologist will also take blood tests to rule out the conditions, and others, discussed above.

I recently had a urine and blood test. Results show egfr @ 53, creatinine @ 1.35 and protein urine @ 123.7. Does this mean renal failure?

I recently had a urine and blood test. Results show egfr @ 53, creatinine @ 1.35 and protein urine @ 123.7. Does this mean renal failure?

Renal failure?: You do not have renal failure. What you have is chronic kidney disease. To find what what your actual GFR is, you need to have a 24 hour urine for creatinine clearance and protein, as well as another lab test to get the creatinine at the time of your urine collection. You will also need a renal ultrasound. See a nephrologist for the best treatment of your chronic kidney disease and proteinuria.

My urine today showed 2+ blood 1+ protein and a specific gravity of 1.050 which I was told 1.050 a month ago. What does this mean? No CT contrast.

My urine today showed 2+ blood 1+ protein and a specific gravity of 1.050 which I was told 1.050 a month ago. What does this mean? No CT contrast.

Blood in urine: Wow the specific gravity shows you have a concentrated urine. Drink more water. Also with a negative ct scan, it is time for a cystoscope of your bladder. See a urologist. I would like to know the microscopic detail of your urine too. Also are you having any symptoms? Good luck.

I had a bunch of blood work done now my doctor wants me to get serum protein electrophesis and a urine protien electrophesis done! What does this mean?

I had a bunch of blood work done now my doctor wants me to get serum protein electrophesis and a urine protien electrophesis done! What does this mean?

Proteins: Simple blood & urine tests only reveal if protein is present. Electrophoresis uses electrical current to separate the different proteins into individual components to see if there are specific ones that r high or low. Some diseases r marked by spikes of a particular protein; others by a lack of a protein.

Hiv expo 59 days, 23 day rna+combo test neg, gave blood for more test inclu HIV genotype. From urine test - abnormal protein. 1) why my doc asked geno test with neg result 2 abno protein means? Help

Hiv expo 59 days, 23 day rna+combo test neg, gave blood for more test inclu HIV genotype. From urine test - abnormal protein. 1) why my doc asked geno test with neg result 2 abno protein means? Help

More info needed: Your HIV test results are nearly conclusive you don't have it. Otherwise, I can't help much. Ask your doctor directly. I don't understand requesting HIV genotype except in someone with confirmed infection; the test can't even be done unless RNA or DNA positive for HIV. Maybe you misunderstood? There are many causes of "abnormal" urine protein and HIV isn't one of them as far as I know. Good luck.

Hi, what could it mean to have blood, protein, glucose and leukocytes in urine of a 15 year old girl? She also has raynaud's diasease + HSP

Hi, what could it mean to have blood, protein, glucose and leukocytes in urine of a 15 year old girl? She also has raynaud's diasease + HSP

Autoimmune disease: HSP is one of the autoimmune diseases that are relatively common in childhood and generally resolve over many weeks and does not return. However, some patients with HSP will go on to have chronic autoimmune inflammation in their kidneys (and skin or gut) that requires evaluation and treatment by both a pediatric rheumatologist and nephrologist. If protein and blood are still in urine, don't delay!
