Which Complex Carbohydrate Makes Up The Cell Wall In Bacteria
What's the benefit of consuming complex carbohydrates (grains mostly) over simple carbohydrates (fruits, veggies)?
You got it backwards: Fruits and veggies are NOT simple carbohydrates! Simple carbohydrates are sugars and foods that easily break down into sugars,such as white flour,white rice, potatoes and juices.These readily raise our blood sugar, which is unhealthy.Complex carbohydrates are found in whole grains,most vegetables and fruits and generally contain fiber. These raise blood sugar less. See http://tinyurl.com/y8f4cagu ...Read more

What mean that urine albumin trace pus cells 12-15 epith.cells+++ crystals amorphous bacteria present?
Urinalysis: Trace albumin means little or nothing. The presence of trace pus cells is probably from a poorly collected specimen contaminated by vaginal secretions, as suggested by the epithelial cells. The amorphous bacteria is also a result of contamination. To be effective in helping diagnosing UTI this should be an assisted clean midstream urine specimen. ...Read more
Kindly interpret my urine analysis micro examination :- pus cells:1-2/hpf, rbc:nil, epi cells : +/hpf, bacteria : +?
Probably normal: With respect to predicting the presence or absence of a urinary tract infection, dipstick urinalysis is often unreliable especially in women because of contamination of the urine specimen with vaginal cells and bacteria. I would consider your u/a fairly unremarkable unless you have symptoms of a UTI in which case a urine culture should be done. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Should i be concerned if I have an abnormal epithelial cells (non renal)>10? Mucus threads present and a few bacteria
I did an HVS and it says pus cells is numerous, epihelia cells ++, Bacteria cells ++, and there is E coli after 24 hours of incubation?
UTI? STD? Herpes?: I don't understand "HVS". Do you mean HSV (herpes simplex virus)? The lab results suggest urine and suggest you have a urinary tract infection due to E. coli. But the tags you selected suggest you have vaginal discharge or pus, right? Maybe more than one problem here. Were you also tested for other STDs? Follow your doctor's advice about further testing, treatment, etc. Good luck! ...Read more

pus cells 1-3
ephitheli cells: few
a phospates: moderate?
Depends on your: Symptoms and the reason for the test. There are no obvious abnormalities in the data that you mention, but you should ask the doctor who ordered the test to interpret the results. A doctor will order a test only when there is a good reason to order it.. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My urinalysis results show: occasional leucocyets, epithelial cells 1/hpf and non squamous epi cell. There's no bacteria. What does this indicate?
"possibly a UTI": While this could represent a lower urinary tact infection, this would most likely represent a contaminated specimen (especially a voided specimen in a female). Most urologists are cautious about "treating the urinalysis" and would follow with a urine culture and sensitivity. ...Read more
Had urine analysis, pus cell 2-3, phosphorate (+++) and in other findings section bacteria (+) is mentioned. Is this report ok?
No it's not.,: You likely have an infection in your pelvic area, probably a uti(urinary tract infection). You've got bacteria in your urine with white cells. Your phosphate reading might be from bacterial production, or something else. You should see your doctor asap to get this worked up and treated. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What does rare squamous epithelial cell laden with bacteria present on cytopsin slide it's the result from my sons bronchoscopy ?
Bronchoscopy AND analysis of specimen: Bronchoalveolar lavage, washings or brushings minimizes the contamination with upper respiratory flora and therefore increases isolation of the etiologic agent. However, the procedure is invasive. If bronchoalveolar lavage, washing or brushings fail to diagnosis the etiologic agent of pneumonia, a percutaneous transtracheal aspiration or lung biopsy may be collected. These are extremely invasive procedures, but will yield a sterile specimen, free of contamination from the normal flora of the upper respiratory tract ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes - normally: I'm not sure of the question. The immune system has many cells but includes the b and t lymphocytes are normally activated and respond to infection including bacterial infection. So, the normal immune system is stimulated by normal potential risks to the body including bacteria, viruses, and parasites. The predominant cell vs bacteria are neutrophils. ...Read more
Gluconeogenesis: Gluconeogenesis is the process of making glucose from other fuels, and your body can do this from protein and fat. Mainly the liver does this. However, it is virtually impossible to eat a diet with "no carbs". Very low carb diets cause excessive ketosis, which causes a lot of symptoms. ...Read more
Yeast infection?: I've not heard of high vaginal swab (which is what I assume you mean by "hvs") as a self test. What did your doctor say about it? Best to interpret these results in connection with symptoms. Possible yeast infection, but even large amounts of yeast cells (3+) can be normal. But if you're having itching irritation, yeast infection is likely. Check with your doctor. ...Read more
I have high white cells in urine but no bacteria. What could cause this? DR still treating as a UTI.
Here are some ...: If properly collected urine with UA and urine culture pyuria (high wbcs in urine) indeed confirmed no UTI and no microhematuria, your pyuria might result from contamination of technical error in urine collection; then do nothing. If not + microhematuria, you would need an evaluation "minimally" with KUB, renal US (preferrably with CT.IVP, , and cystoscopy to make sure of no stone, tumor, etc. ...Read more
