Brief Answer:
It is Ok

Detailed Answer:
I don't see a big abnormality.
Cloudy urine doesn't necessarily mean a problem, but can be just a test abnormality.

Are you having any urinary symptoms?

I was concerned with the Urobilinogen, POC 4.0 or 4.0/6.0 mg/dL Normal (0.0-0.2 mg/dL)

Bilirubin, POC Positive (Moderate or 2+ or 3 mg/dL)

Protein, POC 30 mg/dL (1+)
I have chronic cystitis and my culture came back pos. citrobacter freundil which I ham being treated with antibiotic therapy for now. I have had the urobilogn and bilirubin possitive before and this was my concern.

Brief Answer:
high rise of bilirubin is ok

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for the information.

With chronic inflammation, such as with cystitis, you can see an increase in urine bilirubin. This is a byproduct of the breakdown of the inflammatory components.

The next step is to have your blood checked to see if the bilirubin is high in the blood. If it is high in the blood, then that is something that needs to be checked out, but not urine.
