I have a question regarding my recent urinalysis.

I am a 49 y/o female who is healthy aside from having a hx of asthma and depression.  I'm concerned about my recent abnormal urinalysis results.  I'm wondering if the findings could be a result of urine contamination.  The abnormals are as follows: Appearence: hazy, Protein: 30mg/dL, Blood: trace, Leuk. esterace, small, WBC 0-2, RBC 3-5,Bacteria few, Mucuos threads present, Squamous epithelial 11-30.  I have not had any blood work specific to kidney fx done and am asymptomatic.  Thanks in advance for answering my inquiry.

I am not sure how to read your results- so sorry.  Have you been able to talk to the doctor that ordered the tests to see what they mean?  Is there a reason they had the test done- are they suspecting kidney issues or a UTI?

It was part of a routine exam.

Hello~I think if it were me, I would call the doctor and ask him/her to explain the findings. I would think, however, if the doctor was concerned, he/she would have told you then and there. It almost sounds, as you stated, a type of urine contamination.

I would re-test the urinalysis at least one more time, to see if the trace rbc and blood resolved, as well as the protein. If the protein and red blood cells are still present, I'd go to a kidney specialist to rule out any kidney or bladder issues. Good luck and best wishes! ☺
