Urinary test done. RBC, pus, ephithelial cells, traces of albumin found. What does it mean?

hello, i had urinary test and the miscroscopic finding shows the rbc - 2-3/hpf, pus cell - 50-55/hpf, what does this mean? On the physical characteristics it shows transparency as turbid, reaction - acidic, pH - 6.0 and specific gravity to 1.03, what does it mean? I have trace of albumin , with 3+ for ephithelial cells, bacteria - 1+ and amorphous urates - 2+? Is this normal, can you explain the result of this examination? Would appreciate your reply. thanks and God BLess

Hello, welcome to HCM, I am Dr. Das.

Firstly, your urine test report shows high pus cells and red blood cells. It means there is urinary tract infection.

Presence of epithelial cells also supports this.

Acidic pHysical is due to infection.

Urate crystal indicates presence of urinary stone.

So, overall, the report indicates urinary tract infection and possibility of presence of stone in the urinary tract.

Your test report definitely suggests Urinary Tract Infection (UTI). You need a complete course of effective antibiotics against it.

Also, there seems to be amorphous urate crystals which may be predisposing to renal urate calculi.

My suggestion to you:

Please take a complete course of effective urinary antibiotics like Norfloxacin with Metronidazole combination or even Co-trimoxazole. Getting a urine culture and antibiotic sensitivity done would be ideal before starting the antibiotics.

Please consume plenty of fluids orally so that you pass at least 2 liters of urine per day.

An x-ray of the KUB region will help to rule out calculi, if any.
