Bilirubin in Urine along with leucocytes and protein??

Hello fellow sufferers and recover-ees!

I have been quite poorly for the last 4 months. I noticed my stools had become pebble like and completely white/cream in colour. I was sent for an ultrasound to check for gallstones and that was clear. End of tests. The stools persisted and my GP was not interested and tried to blame all my symptoms on post natal anxiety?? (because anxiety can TOTALLY turn your stools white yes?? ugh) The pain in my kidneys and under my ribs (right side) has persistently gotten worse and I decided enough was enough and paid to see a private gastroenterologist who said the symptoms were not normal and sent me for an MRCP to check liver/bile ducts/gallbladder etc. Results are still pending on this but I'm pleased I'll at least have peace of mind either outcome.

However today I noticed the pain in my kidneys has become increasingly worse and I have urine test strips at home and decided to test myself as I have felt extremely poorly all day.

I am too scared to visit my own GP as they seem to think everything is post natal related so don't want to go and be told im a hypochondriac and not have any tests done so wanted to share the results with others on here as I'm a little concerned.

My Leucocytes are completely dark purple 500+++

Nitrate is negative

UGB Normal

Protein is 300+++

PH is 6.5 normal

Blood is completely dark blue positive BUT I am currently on my period so think this altered the result

Bilirubin is completely dark brown +++ positive

Glucose normal

Ketones normal

I am concerned over the LEU, PROTEIN and BIL results as I'm sure theyre not normal. Im not a doctor but I know my own body and the pain im in isn't normal but I really am too scared to visit my GP now and it's difficult with the baby too getting out and about.

Any help would be appreciated at all.

Please go see your doctor. Sounds like kidneys to me.

Positive high leucocytes on urine is definetely an bladder infection, and since protein *wich is throw out of the body by kidneys* is present, and on normal kidney function protein should not be present, but looks like there's a chance also your kidneys got infected too from the bacteria you have in your bladder (Some bacterias like E.Coli for example, in some rare occasions are able to travel from bladder to kidney and also infect kidneys too). Not saying is your case, but since you do have high leuco on urine and also positive protein, looks like some bacteria has infected your bladder, kidneys and maybe your bowel too (for the white stool).

Go check your gastro.

Thankyou. My gastro has arranged for me to have a gastroscopy on the 22nd Oct which could shed some light on maybe if its hernia or acid reflux related however I did visit my GP on monday who said im battling a very bad kidney infection and sent off my urine sample so hopefully that will provide some better answers over all this. Do you know if urine culture will show up such bacteria? I hope so as this has all been going on far too long.

Well, all the times I have got bladder infection and doctors don't know the type of bacteria, they do request a special lab test to identify the bacteria. The proccess is the same, you just provide another urine sample and the lab is in charge to detect which bacteria is showing up there, at least the one in the bladder is going to be detected this way, and since I have heard that some bladder infections do spread to your kidneys too (is not common, but it does happens sometimes) this could be your case, but is very probably that the bacteria that they're going to found on your urine could be the same one of your kidneys.

Last year I got a bladder infection, and also I have bad stomach symptoms , they test my urine and my stools, and both showed the same bacteria *E.Coli* it spread from my bowel to my urine tract causing infection on both (and even my kidneys were mild compromise too).

So, keep waiting at least they're not longer thinking is you been hypochondriac.
