I've interstitial  cystitis. It has gotten worse with searing pain. Urinalysis revealed elevated nitrates, but no bacteria grew. What could this be?

Treat bladder: Nitites are a sign of infection, i would treat despite the culture. I place patients an a seratonin norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor, like cymbalta, (duloxetine) to help with ascending pain signals. It works well but nitrites mean u likely have n infection, cultures can be wrong. Look it up and inform the doc. ...Read more

Assume nothing: Do not assume the cause of the bleeding present, rather see your FP or Urology MD for confirmation. The ultimate fate of your kidneys is at risk if you assume and are wrong. ...Read more

Urinalysis results: reaction PH 8.0/ leukocytes SMALL 1+ / WBC 2-5/ epithelial cells SOME/ bacteria SOME/ everything else is negative and normal.

UA results: Minor variations in the components of a urinalysis can occur normally, but no one can safely judge whether an infection is present by reading UA results online The doctor who ordered the test can explain whether the UA results might mean an infection, or whether an infection is unlikely. If the diagnosis was no infection but you continue to feel ill later, a recheck is needed. ...Read more

My Urinalysis, showed pH of 8.0 and the presence of 0-1 wbc, for  a consecutive time after my first test 7 months ago yielded same result. Pls Remedy?

Not totally abnormal: A urine pH of 8 is at the upper limits of normal range. Abnormally high urine pH can results from kidney problems, urinary tract infections, vomiting, etc. 0-1 WBC in a clean catch specimen (you peed in a cup) is not considered abnormal. More history about your medical issues would be helpful to answer your question more meaningfully. ...Read more

Probably okay...: Nowadays, urinalysis (ua) is done by computer automation reading, resulting in common erroneous report as trace or moderate bacteria. So, overall this ua is normal or unremarkable, but suggesting possible contamination, which is common in sexually active females. So, repeating ua with/without urine culture with carefully collected urine specimen as instructed is advised if deemed necessary. ...Read more
