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
Usually, not ...: The presence of urate crystals in urinalysis usually means nothing important for average healthy persons, reflecting the degree of dehydration, the absorption and metabolism of purine which may vary and be affected by drugs, diets, diseases like diabetes, kidney failure, obesity, etc. In sum, it is commonly seen in urinalysis and usually not meaningful.

Clarification needed: Urinalysis typically measures urine acidity (ph), specific gravity, protein, glucose, ketones, bilirubin, nitrates/esterase (indicator for infection), and hemoglobin (indicator of red cells). The values for these tests do not match up with your question, the only thing i can think of that matches up numerically on dipstick is protein (mg/dl) or glucose (mg/dl). Please clarify. ...Read more
What does "pi" stand for on a urinalysis? And what does it mean when it is "high"? Urinalysis shows it as 5-10 when normal is 0-3
Urine analysis: I betcha your UA is registering "epi" cells. These are normal kidney or ureter or bladder or even vaginal cells. Sometimes the tech will report "squamous" cells. Urine pH is also reported but normal range is 5 to 7. Shedding these cells is not particularly worrisome, but interpretation requires a reading of what else is in the urine and if an illness is apparent. Suggest repeat and discussion ...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
I had a routioe urinalysis and the pH of my urine is 7.0. What does this mean? Is it abnormal? Please explain. Thank you.
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
