Brief Answer: normal results Detailed Answer: HI, thanks for using healthcare magic Urine analysis looks at different aspects of the urine. (1) colour- light yellow transparency is normal. It means clear light yellow urine (2)specific gravity - this looks at the concentration or density of urine-normal range is between 1.002 and 1.035. Your value is within the normal range (3)pH-this measures the level of acidity or alkalinity of the urine. The normal range is 7.4 to 6, this means that yours is within normal (4)pus cells, pus is formed as a result of infection. Your result has 0-2 pus cells detected which means that no infection is present The abbreviation hpf means high powered field- means that it was examined under high powered microscope. (5)rbc- red blood cells- 0-3, this means that very few , if any red blood cells were seen. This is also normal (6)few epithelial cells - these are cells on the surface of the urinary tract. This is normal Mucus threads-this can also normal. The urinary tract contains mucus areas , the amount can increase in infection but in that case there would have been significant pus cells Your result is normal I hope this helps,feel free to ask any other questions
