good day!

I have reviewed your urinalysis result and i saw the ff abnormalities:

1. sugar - trace - you might be needed to be tested/screened for diabetes mellitus since no sugar should be seen in the urine. the screening test for DM is a fasting blood sugar.

2. pus cells - 3-4/hpf
This means that there are inflammatory cells in your urine. if you are feeling urinary frequency, urinary urgency, and pain on urination you might UTI and you might need to take antibiotics (e.g cotrimoxazole, ciprofloxacin ) after consultation with your physician or urologist

Hi, many thanks for the query!
Well, your urine report is normal but this does not mean you dont have any kidney disease, you havent mentioned about any symptoms if you are having.
To rule out kidney function abnormalities, do USG (KUB), X-ray KUB, Sr. creatinine, Sr. uric acid, Sr. BUN, Urine (R&M).
Wish you a good health.
Take care.
