I had a complete metobolic panel of blood work done several months ago and my creatine was slightly elevated but the creatine/bun ratio was normal. My neutrophils absolute were also alittle elevated. My WBC were a little high as well. Everything else was normal range.
Doctor at time said it was fine.
we repeated the bloodwork a month later and all levels were normal .
I recently took a urinalysis
and it came back negative for everything. However at the bottom of the report it said Uric Acid Crystals Identified
And mucus 1+
Protein and WBC were normal.
Is this urine
result a concern? Does it mean I have kidney
issues or perhaps kidneys stones?
As a background I have lost about 25 pounds in the last few months. I have been suffering from severe stress and depression for over a year and am also looking into possibly being hypoglycemic.
I also had a slight incontinence problem for years that has greatly subsided in the past few months, I contributed it to the weight loss.
I took the urine test after being treated with monsels solution a month prior for a cervical polyp removal cauterization and had also used metrogel vaginal gel about a three weeks before the urine test for a vaginal bacterial infection, perhaps these things can reflect crystals in urine , perhaps falsely?
I also have been taking Klonopin for about seven months, could this be causing kidney issues?
What does Uric acid crystals detected mean? Can't it mean other things besides a stone' or perhaps nothing at all?
Can they only mean that I have a stone, that the crystals are shedding from the stone?
I do not want to rush to a urologist, my GYN says to see one, my general practioner says it is not a concern.
I also had crystals detected in 2011.
What do I need to do?
