Hi XXXXXXX

Thanks for your query.

I have read your urine analysis report.

According to the report only problem I see is few Red Blood Cells (RBC). Presence of RBC in the urine is termed hematuria. The most common causes of hematuria are:
- Urinary tract infection
- Bladder stones
- Kidney stones or ureter stones
- Trauma / injury.

Less than 5 RBC's per a high power field (HPF) in the urine sample is not very significant. As this is an acute episode and the amount is not significant, I expect things would clear up.

I suggest you wait for 2 days. If it persists, please see an urologist for ultrasound evaluation of your renal system.

I hope I answered your query. I will be available to answer any other queries you have, should you have any.

Regards,
Dr. Mahesh Koregol
