Hi my result in fecalysis is. yeast cell is many and bacteria is many?

Sounds normal: Fecal analysis is a scam. No important health information results, especially in people with no symptoms such as diarrhea, abdominal cramping, etc. Yeast cells are normal in stool, and so are "many bacteria". (Over half the weight of feces is made up by bacteria.) ...Read more

What is d meaning of yeast cells present in urine? Is it due to comsumption of alcohol.?

Many possibilities: Could be a contaminant or could be associated with a variety of issues. Assuming you are an otherwise healthy female i would not pay much attention to it. If on the other hand you have urinary tract issues, diabetes or recurrent infection or immunosuppression, i would discuss with your doc. It is most definitely not associated with alcohol use. ...Read more

Unfamiliar with betadine supposetories -- not prescribed commonly in the U.S. ...Read more

I have stool examination and found out that I have few yeast cell. What does it means?

Maybe not much...: No test result can be evaluated out of the context in which it was ordered. What kind of symptoms prompted the study? What are your underlying medical conditions (that may predispose you to intestinal yeast)? If you are in the midst of a GI evaluation, have they ruled out inflammation, other infections, ischemic pathology, as well as motility disorders? ...Read more

Should I see a gastroenterologist if my fecalysis test showed I have pus cell 1-2, RBC 0-1, yeast cell few?

No: The fecal test is normally performed to examine for trace blood to detect presence of a neoplasm. The stool itself is composed of shed colonocytes, bacterial , food particles and bile pigment. The bacteria comprise the microbiome of the intestine and if not perfect may contain an occassioanl yeast and WBC cell. Trace blood can always be found at a microscopic level. No GI work up needed. ...Read more

I did hvs, epithelial cells 3+, pus cells 1-3/hpf, yeast cells 3+, bacteria nil..what can i do?

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

Not the right test: This is not in any way a test for herpes. There is nothing the test report you have shared that indicates the appropriate test for herpes was completed. Usually herpes is best tested by a blood test. ...Read more

I had stool exam, the results showed rare yeast cells, what does that means? Had no diabetes, but have hemorrhoids.

Minimal: Yeast are a normal inhabitant of our colon and can be seen on stool examinations. Like bacteria, some yeast take up residence there and live for years, enjoying undigested matter. They can, on occasion, cause an issue- but if you are fine then leave them alone and let them enjoy life in the warm confines of your bowel. ...Read more

Need a DR: Yeast in urine, by itself, is usually not significant because it usually means the specimen was not fresh at the time of exam and/or it was not collected properly. Any treatment is best determined by symptoms and results of exam. ...Read more
