Where does my urine sediment build up come from?
I have a Super bacteria in urine and a large build up of urinary Sediment that never
goes away. My bacteria never goes away either. Already had a urine cultural sent
down to Georgia Disease Control Lab to find a antibotic that will destoy it, so far
no luck.
I had a Kidney transplant in 2003 and the transplant doctors said that most of all
the kidney transplant patients have the same problem with the sediment but
they do not know why.
Futher more my bladder does not function anymore. I have a oversized spastc
bladder that did hold around 1,700 cc of urine. I have a kidney colosmy bag, a
tube that runs through the kidney & bladder, but still collect some urine in my
badder sometimes that requires self catherization.

Thus, where does all this extra "Sediment" come from and or how does it
materialize to being way too much?

Hi,

Urinary sediment is composed of cells, casts, and crystals.

Normally urine is clear and needs to be centrifuged to obtain any sediment.

Since you have had a renal transplant, there is cause for more than normal shedding of cells from the kidney and bladder.
The presence of an infection would increase the amount of protein present in your urine which would add to the turbidity.
If your kidneys are not excreting enough water, the urine secreted would be more concentrated, which again adds to the sediment.
Both the kidney and the bladder have epithelial cells that shed as part of the normal physiological process.
In addition, any trauma or inflammation would result in the shedding of RBCs and WBCs into the urine.

These are the causes of the sediment in your urine.

Do keep us posted on your progress and doubts.
