What markers on urine test strip determine Hemolysis is
What markers on urine test strip determine Hemolysis is from pessary ring irritation or kidney infection?
Hi there,This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
There is no way to differentiate from urine test strip.
For that you need urinalysis with microscopic examination.
Pessary related bleeding will show intact red blood cells.
Kidney related problem will cause cast formation and also dysmorphic red cells.Best wishes,It was my pleasure to help you today.If I have answered all your questions, Please rate my response Excellent (click on the 5th star).Please bookmark my profile for fast, reliable authentic answers!This is the link to my profile:http://www.justanswer.com/medical/expert-mysticdoc/

The doctor has opted out. Is there something about his answer that you don't understand? A strip just indicates blood. There is no way to tell the source of the blood from the strip. That requires urinalysis.
Please close the question. I need to articulate differently. SOrry
