Urinalysis - Crystal present?

Hi Dr.
I'm a 34 year old male - consider myself healthy, non-smoker, limited alcohol intake.
I just had blood work and a urinalysis done as part of a self-initiated health check-up. I didn't go to my primary but just through a private company that uses Labcorp. Everything looks fine: negative or within range. Except for part of the urinalysis where crystals, Amorphous sediment was found. What does this mean? Is this something to be concerned about? Do you recommend following up with my primary regarding this?
Again, everything else was within range or negative.

Thank you in advance!

There is no need to be concerned with this finding. It may in part just be the result of the temperature of the urine when tested or reflect some dehydration that you were experiencing before the test.
