Hello Bro. Thank you for consulting with us at HealthReplies.com.
Urine test or in medical language is called urinalysis is an examination to analyze the physical, chemical and microscopic conditions of urine. Usually the urine tested is used for purposes such as:
routine health checks, especially for people with diabetes, hypertension, kidney disease and liver disease diagnosis of diseases or medical conditions such as urinary tract infections, kidney stones, diabetes, kidney damage, muscle damage, liver disease monitor disease progress monitor patient responses to a pregnancy test treatment The urine test results that you submit are actually adjusted to the parameters of the relevant laboratory, because different laboratories will usually have a range value that is also different, although usually the difference in the range is not so far apart. Epithelial cells are normally found in normal numbers, if there is an increase in the possibility of inflammation of the urinary tract or urinary tract infection. For white blood cells if there is an increase in the number of white blood cells, it is a sign of infection or inflammation in the urinary tract. Meanwhile, if there are erythrocytes or pieces of red blood in the urine then there is bleeding that can be caused by infection of the urinary tract or bleeding due to stones in the urinary tract.
In the results you submit, there is a big possibility that there will be a urinary tract infection. However, because we do not conduct a thorough and direct examination on you, we cannot confirm it. For this reason, we advise you to go back to the doctor who referred you for the examination to re-analyze the results and adjust it to the symptoms you are experiencing. If it is true because of a urinary tract infection then you will get treatment according to the cause. But if not, then another additional examination is needed that can make the diagnosis.
While all you need to do independently is to consume fluids / water as much as possible every day, avoid outdoor activities that are too long and can cause dehydration, and do enough rest. Avoid consuming carbonated water and energy drinks too often. Thus we can convey, hopefully our information can be useful for you. thanks.
