Afternoon, I want to ask. My child’s urine test results are PH (5.0), specific gravity (1,025), leukocytes (4-7), epithelium (1-3) … bacterial and fungal (negative) … are there any indications of kidney problems?

Hello @tikawidya,


Thank you for the question.

Judging from your child's urine test results, high levels of leukocytes are found (normally 0-4 cells / hpf), while other test results are still within normal limits. This condition often indicates a urinary tract infection (UTI). This condition is indeed vulnerable to children, especially those whose intimate organ hygiene is not well maintained, often inserting foreign objects or fingers into their genitals, poor body endurance, or also experiencing sexual harassment. Clinically, UTI will usually cause the child to experience pain when urinating, urinate frequently but little, stinging or dark-colored urine, appear nausea, vomiting, fever, chills, muscle and joint pain, also pain around the stomach lower, lower back, and waist.


Not only UTI, other conditions, such as kidney stones, interstitial cystitis, interstitial nephritis, and several other medical conditions can also cause high levels of leukocytes in the urine.


The interpretation of your child's urine test results is also the determination of the correct diagnosis of the complaint he is experiencing ideally made directly by the doctor or pediatrician who is examining. Therefore, you should consult with him directly so that your child is given the right treatment, right?


I hope this helps.
