Explanation Of The Results Of Urine Tests With High Levels Of Red Blood Cells?
At noon the doctor just now I was in control because I was hospitalized a few days ago … well, when I was told to do the urine test … and the results were epithelial cells 1-2, erythrocytes 5-6, leukocytes 0-1 … diagnosis of dyspepsia … please info I have a doctor from the lab that is not normal … because the doctor had finished the practice so he can’t read the results of the lab
Thank you for the question.
Need to be clarified, what conditions made you previously hospitalized? Is it dyspepsia, or is there another disease? At present, are there complaints that you are still experiencing?
Judging from your information, what is abnormal from the results of your urine examination is high levels of red blood cells (normally no more than 2 cells per field of view). High levels of red blood cells in the urine can occur due to various factors, for example:
Urinary tract infection
Pyelonephritis (kidney infection)
Kidney stones or bladder
Other kidney disorders, such as glomerulonephritis, kidney injury
Drug side effects, such as penicillin, cyclophosphamide
Sports or physical activity is too heavy
Genetic disorders, such as sickle cell anemia
In men, it can also occur due to prostate disorders, such as cancer, benign prostatic hyperplasia, prostatitis, and so on
Dyspepsia alone should not necessarily make your urine contain red blood cells. However, the red blood cells in the urine do not always refer to dangerous conditions. The good thing is, you consult your examination results back to the doctor who treated you before ..
I hope this helps.
