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

Daughter 5 yrs tested for a uti all came back negative had moderate leukocyte always find white blood cells do cultures come back neg any ideas why?

Daughter 5 yrs tested for a uti all came back negative had moderate leukocyte always find white blood cells do cultures come back neg any ideas why?

YES...: Analysis of the urine can suggest infection but not confirm a UTI. Culture is best. Culture will not be positive if infection due to viruses or if inflammation is of a non infectious origin. Presence of WBCs do not always signal an infection. If your daughter has persistence of WBC especially if symptomatic I will be very glad to help you troubleshoot that.
Take care! ...Read more

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

Labs: Hello, you don't state what is being checked specifically, but this looks like urine that has been contaminated with a vaginal discharge (leuk est+1, squam epi mod and few RBCs) and blood test with CRP (slight elevation) and GFR is reduced but within normal range. I would repeat UA if you have symptoms and get CLEAN CATCH! Thanks ...Read more

Reverse T3 (liothyronine): Check free T3 and reverse t3. Ft3 should be in upper range and rt3 in lower range. If your ratio is off, you may need Armour Thyroid or t3, and synthroid (thyroxine) would be the wrong med for you. Also consider checking thyroid antibodies. ...Read more

What does it mean if your Leukocyte Value is 1+?

What does it mean if your Leukocyte Value is 1+?

Possible infection: Assuming this is a urinalysis, it means you have a few white blood cells, which could signify infection or inflammation anywhere in the urinary tract. An actual count of the cells is more helpful, that's in another part of the test. If there are more than say 10, the risk of infection is higher. ...Read more

What it is leukocyte esterase trace?

Minor infection: Leukocytes (white blood cells) in the urine often indicate an infection of the genito-urinary tract. They release an enzyme called leukocyte esterase. If it is present in trace (very small) amounts, it does not need further treatment. If you have symptoms, such as burning on urination or frequent urination, you will need antibiotics. ...Read more

What is the cause of a low total leukocyte count and how do you get it back to normal?

What is the cause of a low total leukocyte count and how do you get it back to normal?

Low WBC: Low white blood count can be a variant of normal. The normals on a lab report are based on a "bell shaped curve" of normal. Many, especially those with ancestry from the mediterranean region, have a lower white count (~3.0-3.9). If you have lupus or other autoimmune conditions, or if you get frequent infections, the low count may be significant. Please see an md with your result for eval. ...Read more

What is human leukocyte antigens (hla)?

What is human leukocyte antigens (hla)?

Tissue antigens.: The human leukocyte antigen (hla) system is the name of the major histocompatibility complex (mhc) in humans, which contains genes related to immune system function in humans. This group of genes resides on chromosome 6 and encodes cell-surface antigen-presenting proteins. They are important in disease defense and can be the cause of organ transplant rejections, hence tissue typing. ...Read more

Why the number of leukocyte increase in pregnancy?

Why the number of leukocyte increase in pregnancy?

Immune response: White blood cells are part of the body's defense system. They attack what is not supposed to be in a particular human's body like bacteria or cancer cells. Half of a fetus is from the father, resembling a transplant. Mom's immune system would reject the fetus, if it wouldnt' be modified in a way not to do that. Part of the process is an increase in the leucocyte numbers. ...Read more

Stone?: Some bacteria like Proteus associated with Struvite stones produce an enzyme called Urease which increases urine pH and can produce white cells or leukocytes in the urine. This is one possibility. The second is that you are taking a medication that alkalinizes urine. Please review your med list. ...Read more
