Pus Cells in found in urine?
Topic: Pus Cells in found in urine?
November 14, 2019 / By Ab Question:
Went to the docs in September as I had some symptoms of a urine infection, so I gave them a sample, she gave me some antibiotics and off I went...The symptoms have cleared up now, but I went back to the docs for something else unrelated this morning, and they told me that I had Pus Cells in my urine, but no bacteria...So I've got to give another sample now...Any idea what this could be? I also got checked out at my GUM clinic within the week I first went to the docs...Nothing was found there as I was never contacted back. So I'm confused now, help!
Oh and just to add, the Pus Cells were found in the sample I took in September on my first visit, before I took any antibiotics. But there was no bacteria found in the sample, just Pus Cells.
Would like to add...I have no symptoms now, no pain, no cloudy urine...I've been OK ever since I was on the antibiotics. And just to stress the point, nothing was found at my GUM clinic, in me or my girlfriend. Obviously I've got to do another sample, but if Pus Cells or White Blood Cells or whatever they are still present, what could that be?
Should have made more clear really, sorry...The docs have my urine sample, the GUM clinic did the rest.

Blood cells are not found in urine normally. Inflammation, disease, or injury to the kidneys, ureters, bladder, or urethra can cause blood in urine. Strenuous exercise, such as running a marathon, can also cause blood in the urine.
Red blood cells in the urine may be caused by kidney or bladder injury, kidney stones, a urinary tract infection (UTI), inflammation of the kidneys (glomerulonephritis), a kidney or bladder tumor, or systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE)
The presence of PUS CELLS in urine can indicate that you may have infection somewhere in your urinary tract, like a kidney or bladder infection. White blood cells may be a sign of infection or kidney disease.
Cloudy urine can be caused by PUS (white blood cells), blood (red blood cells), sperm, bacteria, yeast, crystals, mucus, or a parasite infection, such as trichomoniasis.
White blood cells (PUS) in the urine may be caused by a urinary tract infection, bladder tumor, inflammation of the kidneys, systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), or inflammation in the vagina or under the foreskin of the penis.
In general it is not normal to have persistent white blood cells(what you call pus cells) in the urine. If accompanied by lower abdominal pain; you may have chronic prostatitis (an inflammation or infection of the prostate gland) which is common in younger men.
The recommended treatment for this is 6-12 weeks of antibiotics not the usual 7-10 days given for a simple urinary tract infection. It would also be helpful to have an X-ray of your urinary system to be sure you have nothing else wrong. I would speak with your health care provider about your concern.
One characteristic of the activated neutrophil is it's adherent capacity. This characteristic is essential for the migration of the cell. Because of this, neutrophils can easily aggregate. In some cases, it is important not to confuse cell aggregation and pus. Pus is formed of degenerated neutrophils (pyocytes) and cellular debris compacted into a mass where cell identity is lost. This discrimination is not commonly used with the urinary sediment, so that many aggregates are reported as pus. The term pus should be restrained to real pus.
In the absence of any symptoms(urinary symptoms such as burning in micturition, fever with chills and increased frequency of urination) or antibiotics, 1-2 pus cells/hpf in urine microscopic examination is normal. Up to 5 pus cells per hpf are normal.

Originally Answered: How do fat cells with alpha receptors get broken down?
That is a good question.
Yupe u are right ... But may I add somepoint ???
Do u know about the alpha- and the beta - glucose ???
That Alpha and Beta receptor is fully related to that type of saacharides. It is a really coincidence for me to meet u right here. Luckyly I`m the nutritient expert.
So the fat cell or the adipose is the only ONE CELL that could store the Glycogen / Lipid. And that Lipid is come from your diet or from the convertion of Glucose (carbohydrate).
U are right that the Beta one is to break down the fat, BUT that Alpha one is also as necessary as the Beta one. The Alpha function is to convert the un-used carbohydrates into the lipid / fat form by the spesific enzymes.
U CAN NOT break / disappear that Alpha receptor soo easy. That would bring a BAD IMPACT. Your body will CAN NOT digest any un-used carbohydrates, and that will be soo BAD to u.
The best way to decrease your weight is by contolled your diet. DO NOT eat so un-neccessay amount of carbohydrates or Lipid. THESE TWO is the major factor that could bring your weight up so fast.
May u luck !!!

dear dear, GUM clinic won't check your urine. no they won't.
pus is a combination of white blood cells, tissue debris & microorganism as product of suppuration. presence of WBC in the urine usually indicates urinary tract infection and inflammation.
prevention: drink a lot of water and empty your urinary bladder as soon as its full. do not delay. change underwear at least twice a day.

Originally Answered: How can White Blood Cells be increased?
The only true way to know if your white blood cells are low is to have a blood sample taken; the lab technician will count the number of white blood cells. This is called a white blood cell count or WBC. Normally, the WBC count will be 4.0 or higher, but it may drop as low as 1.5 to 2.0 without serious harm during chemotherapy.
There are some signs of infection, which might occur if your white blood cells are low, such as:
Fever (temperature over 100oF or 38oC). Keep a thermometer at home and check your temperature daily while you are receiving chemotherapy treatments.
Chills or shaking.
Burning feeling when passing urine. More frequent urination.
Redness, heat, swelling and drainage from a wound.
Cough with yellow or green coloured sputum.
Sore throat (along with fever).
Diarrhea (along with fever).
What should you do if you notice any of these symptoms:
If you have an infection when your white blood cells are low, this is a medical emergency. Even if you feel reasonably well, you must contact your doctor or nurse IMMEDIATELY! Know when to expect your white blood cells to be low, and watch for any of the signs of infection during these times. Your nurse or doctor will tell you when to expect low white blood cells counts.
When Your White Blood Cells Are Low:
What You Should Do:
Take your temperature by mouth daily when WBC counts are likely to be low, or if you have chills, sweats or a fever. If your temperature is at or above 101oF or 38oC, call your doctor or nurse IMMEDIATELY
Stay away from people who have colds, flu or contagious diseases. If your white blood cells are low, you should avoid crowds of people in public places, such as shopping malls.
Eat a well-balanced diet. Wash all fruits and vegetables. Avoid raw meat and fish.
Drink at least 8 glasses of fluid a day.
Wash your hands before eating and after using the toilet. Keep your hands out of your mouth.
Take care of your mouth- maintain proper oral hygiene.
Check with your doctor before you have any dental check-ups or dental procedures.
Shower or bathe daily, if you are able.
Prevent constipation. If you need a laxative, ask your doctor, nurse or pharmacist for help. Avoid rectal suppositories or enemas when your white blood cells are low. See the pamphlet Laxatives for more information.
Clean any scrape or cut immediately with soap and warm water.
