Hi,

Welcome to XXXXXXX and thanks for your query.
Urine analysis may be either dipstick or microscopy.
The value mentioned is detected by dipstick and needs to be quantified by doing a microscopy to look for RBC in urine.
If the RBC in urine is less than 3 in number, there is no need to worry, unless you are symptomatic.
If microscopy is not done, it is wise to do and decide further the further course of action.
Please let me know the microscopy result and the normal value of the test done already ( normal values are usually mentioned in brackets)

Best Regards

Follow-up: Urine analysis showed RBC 135u. What are the complication? 8 hours later
Hi dr the follow up urine analysis showed I had 3+ in rbc is that worrying?
But that was back in August. I don't have much symptoms.
Could that be period blood?

Hi,
Welcome back.

If the urine was taken during the periods time, then it may not be serious.
Otherwise, it is better to get an analysis done electively during the non-periods time for reassurance.

Wishing you good health,

During a health check for immigration purposes my 11 and a half year old daughter showed high levels of protein in her urine. Subsequent blood tests found her blood to be normal but her urine test shows microalbumin levels of 288 (they should be less than 20) and Urine ACR of 172.9 (should be less than 3.4). I was referred to a nephrologist and have to wait two weeks for the appointment. My concern is that this should have been treated with more urgency. She has no symptoms of illness at all. Please could you comment on this.

Hi there my 4 year daughter has suffered from urine infections and she had a really bad one at Christmas time where she had very high temp of 40c and when urine sample dipped it showed white blood cells, protein etc. Since Christmas she was very quiet, subdued and tired so much so the nursery had commented on how she was. She often complains of a sore tummy and I have put in other urine sample which came back clear for a urine infection however there was still blood present. Her GP has refered her to paediatrics but my concern is that she has had a low grade temp of 37.7 for weeks now and an on/off tummy pains, she is more lively now but still gets tired at times. I just wanted to know what to ask the paediatrians when I see them and if I should be concerned that theres maybe something else underlying.

Hi! I am Jun, 49 y.o., 5'3'', 160 lbs and had kidney stone treatment 20 years ago. My RBC reflected `too numerous to count' finding. I had urine culture, morphology and ultra sound tests performed. There is nothing painful I feel when urinating, no fever, etc. But I had five urinalysis already and was advised to drink lots of liquid but the condition `TNTC RBC' persists.

This is such a bizzare disease. Any suggestions on diet or vitamins to help?
