Thanks for posting your query.
The results of your urine analysis are within normal limits.
Presence of red blood cells and pus cells upto 5 per high power field under a microscope ( HPF) are absolutely a normal finding and are not suggestive of any urinary pathology.
Epithelial cells are normally shed with our urine. Presence of an occasional epithelial cell in the urine is also normal.
Hence I reassure you that there is nothing to worry.
Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
Dr. Rakhi Tayal.
