Yearly physical worried about urine results again!
« on: March 08, 2014, 07:41:30 PM »
Friends- I had my yearly physical on Friday. My primary care physicians office has gone completely paper free and now all test results are posted online to your specific account. Of course this is horrible for me because the minute I get home I am logging on looking at my results. My urine - again- is out of range for microscopic blood- 0-2 cells is normal- apparently, my urine was in 2-5 cell range .

Now what I am most worried about is that they saw a 1+ erythrocyte-
I don't even know what this is or means and I am too scared to google.
Apparently the urine is supposed to have none of this.
I emailed my doctor through the same sight and I haven't gotten a response because it was already Friday afternoon.
Now - I'm really scared!
Do any of you know or can help me?

I know it's very normal :) when I got my urine tested constantly during pregnancy and I often had RBC in my urine. My mom also tells me when she gets her urine checked she had it half the time. Apparently it's a lot more common for women than we think. :) relax!!

erythrocytes are red blood cells. So it's the same as what you already know. Don't start freaking out - it could be from an infection, it could be from a small kidney stone, it could be from your period (when did you have it when you got the test, or when was it due?)  I had some of that when I  had a urinalysis about 7 days after my period.
Now my friend had been having bleeding on and off for 2 years - and I mean REAL bleeding, not just a few microscopic cells.... she would actually pee red!!   They found NOTHING wrong!  Many times that COULD happen and the reason is never found.  She did have 2 kidney stones which the doctors said is the reason (the stones dissolved or something, they are gone now and so is the bleeding)
It's NOT an odd thing to happen.

Also I have had past urine checks with the microscopic red blood cells before. Because it has happened yearly I almost know it won't be normal but sometimes I just want someone to say you are "normal".  I guess I am now very worried about the 1+ erythrocyte- I never heard that term before. I thought I would like seeing the "actual" lab numbers online but now I feel like it's a trap.
Thank you so much for your support!

Like I said, erythrocytes is just another name for red blood cells, that's all.  It's not something NEW they found, they just used a fancier word.
