What Does Leukocyte Esterase Ua 3 Mean
A ua is a urinalysis, or chemical and microscopic analysis of the urine. The standard urinalysis is performed with a dipstick test for ph, blood, protein, sugar, and ketones. In addition, a urinalysis usually includes a microscope examination to identify if the urine contains cells, "casts" (structures that indicate a problem originating in the kidney) or crystals (such as ...Read more
I am 11 weeks pregnant and today my results came back: leukocyte esterase ua large: what does this mean?
Urinalysis: Leucocyte esterase comes from white blood cells - infection fighters. Having these cells in your urine usually means infection. However, there can be other causes and so I would recommend that you talk with your doctor about getting a urine culture done if she/he thinks this means infection. ...Read more
Urobilinogen ua-> 2, blood- small, leukocyte esterase- small, RBC-3, WBC-3. abdominal distented/swollen ×5wks. Do these results raise concerns?
Leukocyte esterase, ua my results were large. It also said "does not show any significant bacterial infection". Am I ok? Or do I need a 2nd opinion?
Culture that urine.: A urinalysis (ua) cannot always identify the presence of bacteria or an infection. Although leukocytes can be present in the urine from other non-infectious causes, an infection should always be considered, and only a urine culture can diagnose or exclude an infection. ...Read more
UA results: leukocyte esterase moderate, epitheleal cells 9, RBC 13, WBC 30, Bacteria 4. Having pretty severe right back/flank pain.
I am five days postpartum. UA says Leukocyte esterace Large and Hemoglobin moderate. Everything else was normal. No fever or pain in urinating.?
Does an urinalysis report of: leukocyte esterase 1+, urine WBC 6-10 and squamous epithelial cells 0-5 mean an infection?
Not necessarily: Voided (vs. Catheterized) urine specimens in women are potentially subject to contamination. Urine culture is the definitive method of determining the presence of infection. Another important point is that in older women in the absence of symptoms, this kind of urine abnormality alone or even a positive culture should not be treated with antibiotics (asymptomatic bacteriuria). ...Read more
My urinalysis showed: RBC 3+, WBC 77, protein trace, leukocyte esterase trace, renal cells trace; culture showed no bacteria. What do you think it is?
Are my Urinalysis results a cause for concern? Under blood it says Large, Urobilinigen. 02 and Leukocyte Esterase small. I'm 27 weeks pregnant.
Recheck URINALYSIS: If your repeat urinalysis still shows "large blood", your obstetrical team will want to find out about possible lower abdominal trauma, recent sexual activities....check your urine culture to rule out an asymptomatic urinary tract infection and possibly refer you to a urologist. Do request a follow up evaluation and get reassured. ...Read more
Hi I received a urinalysis test result with abnormal +2 ketones, +1 blood, 2+ leukocyte esterase, and above high normal 2+ WBC. No bacteria seen.?
Urinalysis: The ketones may have been because you were fasting when collecting the urine, or perhaps you are diabetic and blood sugar not in good control. The leukocytes were probably from vaginal secretions unless you had a clean assisted midstream catch urine. You do not say if you have any symptoms. Lab values without a clinical context are not very valuable. ...Read more
Had blood and urinalysis 7/15. Blood work was all normal but urine showed creatinine level of 409, trace protein, trace leukocyte esterase, WBC, hyali?
Stop worrying: I understand you have fibromuscular dysplasia of the renal arteries and hope this can be addressed. The urine creatinine, trace protein and hyaline casts are non-issues, the trace of leukocyte esterase and white cells (unless very numerous or you have symptoms of infection) are likely contamination, and if your physician is not concerned, I would not be either. Best wishes. ...Read more
I have often UTI, I just finished 5 d of Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim), the UA shown nitrite positive, blood mod, protein 30+ and leukocyte was small. What 's to do next?
Recurrent UTI...: If urinalysis was after Bactrim, (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) you have resistant bacteria, need different antibiotic. Several possible causes of recurrent UTI, including persistent uncured infection; altered bladder function; and kidney or bladder stone. Sex sometimes triggers UTI. Usually recurrences can be prevented once the cause is known. Discuss with your doctor, or ask for referral to infectious diseases specialist. ...Read more

Depends: Leukocyte esterase released by lysed neutrophils and macrophages is a surrogate marker of the presence of white blood cells (WBCs). Leukocyte esterase suggests that there are white blood cells in the urine. Based on symptoms and other urine analysis findings this may suggest a urinary tract infection ...Read more
I had a positive result for leukocyte esterase. What could this mean. Also I had a trace of blood seen in the unrine.
My urin test showed leukocyte esterase amman 1+negative a what foest mean. I had to take another one. I'm freaking out. Bloodwork excellent.
All urine results, neg, but LEUKOCYTE ESTERASE shows MODERATE. What does this mean? Last time it was SMALL/Clear. This time MODERATE/SLIGHTLY-CLOUDY.
Urinalysis: Cloudy urine and urine containing white blood cells (leukocytes) don't necessarily signify a urinary tract infection. The white cells may be contaminants from a vaginal infection or discharge. A clean catch urine culture would rule in or out a urinary tract infection. If you have a vaginal discharge, see your gynecologist and he/she can order any appropriate urinary tests if no vaginal infection ...Read more

I have stage 4 cirrhoses & enlarged kidneys. Recent test showed my Leukocyte Esterase of 500. What does this mean?
What do these test results mean? CO2 20 LO, ALT 36 HI, MPV 12.1 HI, Ketone, Urine 3+, 80 mg/dL, *Leukocyte Esterase MODERATE *, WBC, Urine 5-10 HI
Discuss results: The Dr who ordered the test needs to provide feedback to you in a way that clarifies the impact on your Dx and Tx options. It should make sense to you or it is not a finished piece of work. Get a consult and perhaps bring someone along to help you understand and remember the details. ...Read more
Occult blood 3+, protein 2+, rbc 20-40, wbc packed, leukocyte esterase 3+, bacteria few, squamous epithelial cells 6-10. All else Norm. What does this mean.
Probable UTI: "All else normal"?? What's left? That's most of the urinalysis. It strongly suggests you have a urinary tract infection. It could be an STD, if at risk, but less likely. Certain non-infectious kidney diseases could cause these things. But UTI is by far the best bet. Discuss with the doctor who ordered the test; probably you need an antibiotic prescription. ...Read more
