Hello,

I'm Dr Chaithanya attending you.

The dipsticks colors vary depending on the company. Can you paste the instructions about results, what color shows what according to them?

I'm at work I don't know. I just know the yellow with specs. Is no hemoglobin or something like that

Hello,

Thanks for requesting a new answer. Leokocytes are white blood cells and can indicate a urinary tract infection. In women it can also indicate that the specimen was not a clean catch and is contaminated with vaginal cells. The most common causes of hemolyzed blood are allergies, or love levels of vitamin C, A, bioflavenoids or calcium.

Best regards,

Schuyler

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
