Poss Kidney Stones: Have you had an imaging study? Ultrasound is rather unreliable. If your urinary ph (acidity) is 6 or higher, then stones should show up on plain xray (kub). Urine ph of 5.5 or lower can cause uric acid stones, which do not show up on plain film. Ct scan is then necessary. Bottom line is, you need to be seen by your doctor and, if he can't figure it out, get a referral to a specialist. ...Read more

Significance? Urine- wbc>100/cmm; red blood cells:+++; no growth. Fbc (suggestive of infection)- neutrophil:7.3 10*9/l; mean platelet volume: 12.3fl

Significance? Urine- wbc>100/cmm; red blood cells:+++; no growth. Fbc (suggestive of infection)- neutrophil:7.3 10*9/l; mean platelet volume: 12.3fl

Lab data: These results are meaningless without a clinical history and exam results. Although you have micropyuria and hematuria cannot be sure of the significance without knowing the problems you are investigating and the manner in which the urine was collected. It would be helpful if you provided the remainder of the cbc, but not without expounding on reasons it was done. ...Read more

Red and white blood cells in urine. Docs not worried - decided it was endometriosis (without further tests). Should i seek 2nd opinion?

Red and white blood cells in urine. Docs not worried - decided it was endometriosis (without further tests). Should i seek 2nd opinion?

DEFINITELY!: Red and white blood cells in urine could mean possible bladder infection; urine culture can confirm this. Endometriosis can only be diagnosed by a biopsy or direct visualization (can't biopsy something that you can't see so visualization is required) via laparoscopy. Start with a urine culture; if negative and there is suspicion for endometriosis, see a gynecologist. Best of luck. ...Read more

High levels of white blood cells in urine. What could that mean?

Pyuria: White blood cells in urine usually are there because of an infection in the urinary tract. However, they can also be there in large numbers in a female when there is a vaginal infection or when she is having her period (always see red cells also in this situation). My best advice is to see your doctor and have a urine culture done to see what is going on. ...Read more
