Urinalysis showed I had red blood cells present and hyaline casts. I had mild anemia but blood counts were stable. Urine color was yellow but cloudy. Gravity 1.028 H. Urine RBC/HPF 5 H/HPF. Mucus was present. Hyaline casts 89 H/LPF.L. I don’t know what this information means.

No disease, but I was in pain management and they were looking for increased sugars in the urinalysis to indicate the use of alcohol. However, I have been diagnosed with reactive hypoglycemia which throws off my urine test and I have been accused of drinking alcohol, when I was certainly not. I'm extremely frustrated by this, to the point I have almost given up because I now only sit in a chair all day due to severe pain. Any suggestions would be most helpful.

No disease, only a urinary tract infection was discovered through my urinalysis. I took antibiotics. Urine was clear without debris. Now it is slightly cloudy with some suspended debris floating near the bottom of the container.

My father has been suffering from tic douloureux (trigeminal neuralgia) since last 10 years. It started when a young dentist pulled out his teeth in a wrong way, from dental pain to facial trigeminal neuralgia. No good neurologists are there in our area, and first 5 years they have been giving him pain killing injection. Now as he is aging vessels get weaker and injections are not taken up properly to pain area and he is suffering from severe pain.

I don’t know what it means, but the result of the mucus urinalysis is slight.

I've been suffering from UTI symptoms on and off for three weeks. The first week I went to the doctor, I had painful swollen glands and UTI symptoms. The doctor did a urinalysis and found no WBC. He sent me for an ultrasound and CT scan, both of which came back negative. I've continued to have pain in my legs from the swollen pelvic glands and urine symptoms. I went back to the doctor today as I feel so run down I can't function, and my urinalysis came back with a high WBC count. The doctor gave me antibiotics, but I’m nervous that it is something other than a UTI. I've had UTIs in the past, and this is different. I don't have the frequency, but when I do go, I have burning and spasms.
