Question: Hello, I had a urinalysis, routine done as well as cbc, chem profile, sed rate and a few other labs. The urinalysis came back with trace ketone, moderate blood rbc ur micro 11-15 and trace mucus. I am concerned and was wondering what this could mean. I had trace microscopic hematuria in the past, but it would resolve and was never more than 3-5 hpf. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks for writing in.

Did you mean 11-15 pus cells or WBC ? If yes, it points to a urinary tract infection.

I think it would be better if you could scan and attach your urine examination report.

I would also like to know the following:

1. Any history of high grade fever with chills, lower abdominal pain/back pain, increased frequency of urination, burning urination, nausea or vomiting ?
2. What was the indication for getting a urine examination? Was it routine or did you have any symptoms for which the doctor advised you to get the test done?
3. Were you having your periods when you collected your urine for the test ?
4. Any history of loin to groin radiating pain ?
5. Any past history/family history of calculi (kidney stones) etc?

Kindly get back to me with the scanned report and additional details.

Awaiting your reply,

Dr. Divya Kuttikrishnan

My name is Brenda, 5'7" 180 lbs. I was diagnosed in 2004. Presented with only the left ear affected. Blood Work sent to Mayo Clinic, confirmed Anti Collagen II. In 2006 had some nasal issues from RP nothing since. I have had microscopic hematuria since 1999 ranging from 2+ to 6+, about 20 different urinalysis and never an infection. Occasionally protein 5+. Had a urine cytology in 2006, negative for malignant cells, had a cytology in Feb 2010, negative for malignant cells. Had cytology 3 weeks ago, atypical urothelial. Have had symptoms similar to Interstial Cystitis for 5 to 6 years. Seems to flare at different times. Good for months at a time. Currently in some type of flair. Urinating 15-20 times a day, lots of burning but urinalysis done on Monday just came. back with blood 3+, no infection. Had cystoscope in 2008 looked good no lesions but bladder was slightly inflamed. I have another cystoscope scheduled for July 18th. I am extremely nervous about the Atypical Urothelial cells but have some comfort that I am still here with hematuria for 12 years. Do you think the Atypical Cells could be caused by what appear to be symptoms of Interstial Cystitis, or do you think it is likely I have bladder cancer. I am going insane waiting. Only one urologist is our town of 20,000.00

It was discovered that I had microscopic hematuria after my most recent annual exam. The doctor gave me antibiotics for an abnormal vaginal culture. (possibly a UTI). After 10 days I had a recheck and still positive for RBC (+3). I had a CT of my kidneys and no stones or tumors. They now want to do a cytoscopy. I ve been having IBS symptoms lately, too. Can this cause hematuria?

Hi, I'm a 32 years old male, i'm a smoker, passing i a high stress period and i have microscopic hematuria (18 by field). Ultrasound showed nothing and cystoscopy showed nothing also. The urologist who did my cystocopy said that i have a very sensitive bladder maybe due to stress. Can stress cause hematuria? and what should i do more?

Hematuria in urine, when it is done with a cathater there is no blood, test was done by an ER Doctor. He also did a blood test for a disease of the muscle since he said that could cause the hematuria, came back negative. I have had a CAT Scan, MRI and an ULtrasound all came back ok, do you know what would cause the hematuria, one urologist thought it could be non bacterial cystitis is there anything else?
