The Result Of Urine Examination Has Positive Blood 1, What Does It Mean?
Good afternoon, I want to ask, yesterday I was a regular Rikkes in the office, the result was that I had positive blood 1 .. I don’t know what that means, doctor, thanks
Thank you for the question.
It needs to be clarified, from what specimens are the results of the examination obtained, is blood, urine, feces, or maybe other? Are there any particular complaints that you are feeling right now?
Laboratory tests can be performed with various specimens. Depending on the specimen used, the normal value of the results of this examination may differ. Not only the specimen, your age, your posture, and the type of examination that was carried out can also influence the normal value of the results of this examination.
If the examination you mentioned is done using a urine specimen, then a positive blood level 1 can actually be said to be reasonable. The level of red blood cells that need to be aware of when examining urine is when it exceeds 3 cells. This condition often occurs due to infection, stones, inflammation, to malignancy around the urinary tract.
However, if the specimens used are different, then the interpretation of the results of your examination can also be different. Therefore, in order to avoid misconceptions, it is far better if you consult directly with your doctor or internist who is examining you.
I hope this helps.
