Brief Answer:
Needs ultrasound KUB and urologist review

Detailed Answer:
Hi! Welcome to health care magic! Thanks for sharing your concerns with us. We will try to help you in best way possible.

First of all, it is sad to know what you had gone through. Based on the history you have shared, it seems less likely to be caused by krill oil as it's lipid soluble and doesn't usually excreted in large amount ls through urine but other pathology like urinary tract infection or benign prostatic hypertrophy needs to be ruled out.

To start with urinalysis and ultrasound KUB woth prostate is a must. Also get blood sugar levels checked and stop using the suspected offending agent. Citrosoda XXXXXXX can be used Meanwhile if burning is experienced. Consult a urologist if problem persists.

Hope this has answered your query, if you have any more questions, feel free to ask. Regards.

Hi. I am having a urine problem. I researched over Internet and found that my symptoms are similar to Overflow Incontinence. I consulted a urologist, he took Urine Regular Examination test. All the values in test were normal but one value which is PH was 7.5 (normal was 6.0 to 7.5), the doctor prescribed me Wellcodox capsules (2/day for 5 days), if my symptoms are 100% match with overflow incontinence then why I am having normal value in urine test?

Hi, I went to the doctor not long ago for a UTI. Then when it was gone i started burning and having the symptoms again. Well, i went to the doctor again and she said she didnt think i had a UTI but gave me some antibiotics for 3 days to see what was gonna come back on the lab report. She now asks me for another urine sample saying i have too many enzymes in my urine. What could be wrong? Im at my wits end!

Hi,ayI answer your health queries right now ? Please type your query here...I just went in for a routine exam and did a blood and urine test. They called with the results today and said the blood was negative and everything looked fine. The urine test showed a little blood so they want me to come in 2 weeks from now and take another urine test? I am male age 24, should I be worried or is that common?
