My report is as follows -
Albumin : Traces
Sugar,ketone bodies, bile salts and pigments - Negative
Urobilinogen - Normal amount
Epithelial cells - 6-8/hpf
pus cells - 8-10/hpf
RBC,Casts,Crystals - Nil
Cause of miscarriage is unknown, we had done all blood tests post miscarriage and nothing came out.
