Can someone help me with these results please im concerned and don't know what they mean
Appearance CLOUDY
Erythrocytes HI 0.3 mg/L
Leukocyte Esterase HI 500 WBC/uL
Albumin/Creatinine HI 3.2 mg/mmol
This urinalysis is consistent with a urinary tract infection. I would suggest getting a urine culture done. As for the slightly elevated albumin to creatinine ratio (ACR), I would not place any stock in it until the infection (if present) is treated. An inflamed bladder can definitely increase the value of the ACR.

Thank you very much. I have no signs whatsoever that would indicate a UTI which is why it is worrying me so much.
I would still suggest excluding a UTI as they can be asymptomatic. If no infection is present, then a microscopic exam of your urine is warranted.If the white cells and ACR elevation is persist, then a workup for that should be undertaken. As part of that assessment, you should have your kidney function tested as well.

Hi Jen,

Sorry my doctor also hasn't figured it out. Since posting this article I have had 3 lots of antibiotics for a UTI and still haven't got any further as that's clearly not the problem.
Sorry I can be of much help but will keep you updated with any news.

Thank you Suzanne for writing back. I got a referral for a Urologist and have not got the appointment yet since my doctor couldn't figure out what was happening. Try getting a referral to the urologist since they specialize in bladder concerns. I will keep you posted.

I have the same results, but the culture was done and was negative. Also nitrites were negative, so no infection...
