  • Don't worry it's normal.
  • Don't you have a real-life doctor to explain these results to you and who you can go to if you have questions regarding these results?
  • heymikey: i do have your so-called REAL-LIFE DOCTOR.......duhhhhh

  • hey... can i ask someone to please interpret my urinalysis results? please... like karl_edvard, im a little paranoid.. hehe
    please please please PM me.. =)

    The normal value for pus cells in urine is 0-5/hpf. Epithelial cells line your urethra and are regularly sloughed off when you urinate. Your urinalysis is normal.

    vanilla_ice, your urinalysis results are perfectly normal.
  • hehehe... thnks po... woohoo! =)
  • I also had a urinalysis (a pre-employment requirement) last Thursday and the following results made me wonder if I should be alarmed or something:

    white blood cells - 4 to 7 hpf (some in clumps)
    albumin - trace

    the other entries (red blood cells etc.) and the corresponding results of my urinalysis were within the range posted by the two other pexers who posted in this thread earlier so I'm assuming mine are normal as well.

    Am I being paranoid or should I see a doctor to determine if there's something wrong with my kidneys? Thanks.
  • Are you a he or a she? How did you collect your urine? To be sure, you can have another urinalysis done (mura lang naman). There's a chance that the results are just due to poor collection techniques, especially if you're female.
  • eyedoc, thanks for replying.

    I'm female. The clinical lab (along UN Ave., Manila) I went to for urinalysis gave me a plastic cup where I peed. I also had a urinalysis in a hospital early last year (also for employment purposes) and the results were all normal. Maybe it's better if sa hospital na lang ulit ako magpaurinalysis next time.

    The 4-7 WBCs/HPF is bothersome particularly in the prsence of clumps. It may indicate urinary tract infection. Are the nitrite and urine leukocyte esterase positive?

    If you have your urinalysis repeated, make sure you collect your urine specimen correctly. Cleanse the area around with soap and water, catch your urine mid-stream to reduce contamination with bacteria and cellular debris from the skin on and around the urinary and vaginal openings.
  • i had my urinalysis the other day kasi may viral infection ako and it's one of the requirements. RBC is 8-14/HPF medyo alaraming daw so we had to repeat it. Kinabahan ako, is it because of the viral infection i'm having right now?
  • my urinalysis revealed I have uti kasi pus cell is 4-8, tanong ko lang anong causes nito ...be specific on spinal injured, or fractured spinal kasi ...bigla lang tong sa akin...magpa xray daw ako sabi ng doktor kasi sobrang sakit ng right abdomen ko...sa ibaba ng ribs hanggang likod...pabugso bugso...tapos may sinat at sumasakit din ang neck ko...

    naalala ko may tinulak akong mabigat tapos nagbuhat ng mabigat. posible kayang na injured ang spinal ko kaya nagkaron ng uti...first time ko magka uti (single, no bf)

    anti-bacterial yung gamot at pain reliever...though worried ako kasi di nman daw ganun kasakit ang uti...kung pain reliever lang ...di magagamot kung may iba pang sakit ako. (for 1 week yung pain reliever), for 3 days lang yung anti bacterial for uti.

    You have microscopic hematuria--- meaning normal-looking urine that shows blood under microscopic examination. Blood in the urine may come from the kidneys, urinary bladder, the tubes (ureters) connecting the kidneys to the bladder and the tube (urethra) connecting the bladder to the outside. It may be contaminated with blood from from the vagina or lesions around the vaginal area. It may be caused by serious or benign medical condition. As a rule of thumb, any bloody urine, gross or microscopic, needs to be looked into. Granting that you collected your urine properly, you were not menstruating at the time of urine collection, and had no known source of outside bleeding, you should check with your family doctor.

    Did your urine show any red blood cell cast? How did it describe the red blood cells in the urine? Did the red blood cells have uniform or different appearance (morphology)? A good urine examination should give you these data.

    You did not give enough data of your urine examination to make out UTI as definitive cause of your abdominal pain, which you locate on the right upper part of the abdomen just below the ribs and radiating to the back. With very sketchy history and urinalyis findings, here are the possiblities: Gallbladder stones with infection, abdominal muscle wall and back sprain, kidney infection, and liver disease. Have a follow-up with your doctor who prescribed you with the antibiotics and pain medication.
  • ^ I will have a xray exam soon. I did not take pain reliever after two days because the pain stop. But I feel, I always have "sinat" and back ache as well as in the neck. thanks for the advise. will have a follow up check up.
