Question: My healthy 26 year old son's second urinalysis came back with the following abnormalities: Clarity- turbid, blood - trace, RBCs - 4-10, amorphous - many. His doctor ordered this second urinelysis because the first one showed +1 blood in the urine. He had gone in for a routine annual physical. What do these recent lab results mean, what caused them (the tests were a month apart and taken at different times of day) and what is done about it?

The first urinalysis showed nothing abnormal except +1 for blood in urine. That is why the second urinalysis was taken. Then these other abnormalities showed up too.
