Explanation Of Urine Test Results?
Ass .. I want to ask if Epithels is a form of disease / illness .. And the name of the medicine, what can be cured, because in my urine test there is a positive Epithels .. Thank you.
Epithelium is a cell where epithelial cells function as protective tissue or a danger sign where if there are high numbers of epithelial cells in the urine it can indicate disease in the body. Epithelial cells themselves can be found on microscopic examination of urine. If found in small amounts in the urine sediment it is said to be normal. If the epithelial cells increase it can be caused by several possible causes such as urinary tract infections, kidney disease, bladder disorders, blood disorders and others.
Urine examination itself is a supporting examination in which to establish a diagnosis a thorough examination is required starting from an interview regarding the symptoms that arise, a physical examination and also supporting examinations such as a urine examination. In the urine examination or urinalysis itself, it needs to be seen thoroughly, not only looking at the epithelial cells, because there are many components in it such as crystals, blood, protein, leukocytes, and others. For this reason, bring back the results of your urine examination to the doctor who requested the examination so that information can be complete and a diagnosis can be established regarding the condition you are experiencing and if necessary, appropriate treatment will be given.
Try to maintain the health of the urinary tract by drinking enough water, avoid consuming alcoholic drinks, soda, caffeine, limit salt intake, avoid fatty foods, and do not hold back the urge to urinate.
