Hello,

Thanks for your query.

Based on the facts that you have posted and report of your Urine analysis it appears that you have Uric acid crystals in urine and your urine is acidic in nature.

The pain at the end of urination could be due to acidic urine and Uric acid crystals.
Please consult qualified Urologist for evaluation and further treatment.

Please get your Serum Uric Acid levels estimated if it turns out to be raised, you may need to take medications to reduce the same.

Please consult qualified Urologist for evaluation and further treatment.

Ensure to take urine alkalizer and to drink more water to keep your urine alkaline and dilute.

Hope I have answered your query.

Please feel free to ask if you have any more questions I shall be happy to help you.

Thanks with Regards.

How serious could this be? I'm a little concerned because I thought it would just be a UTI and its not. What are some of the possibilities?

Hello,

Thanks for follow up.

Your urine sample does not show any features of infection (no bacteria and no WBC).

Apart from stones and acidic urine, I do not think there are any other possibilities.

Stones per se and acidic urine are not serious. Drinking plenty of water and alkaliser such as sodium citrate should take care of the problem.

Hope I answered your query.

Regards
Dr.Patil.
