Answer: White blood cells perform a complex function, identifying and attacking invaders of the body. They need genetic information found in the nucleus to be able to do this correctly. Red blood cells perform a very simple function, transporting oxygen. Simply by containing hemoglobin, red blood cells do this automatically, so they do not need genetic information found in the nucleus. White blood cells have a complex function, requiring them to identify and attack invaders of the body. They need lots of genetic information to be able to do this. Red blood cells have a very simple function, to transport oxygen, which happens automatically because of the oxygen-binding compound hemoglobin that they contain, so they do not need any genetic information to be able to do that.
The only purpose that red blood cells have is to carry oxygen via hemoglobin throughout the body. The red blood cells are able to forgo all unnecessary organelles and be more efficient by having most of the cell fill up with hemoglobin while being formed in the bone marrow.
Answer: High white blood cell count would mean an infection of some type. The body raises white blood cells to fight infections. If it is along with blood in urine, it would most likely be a urine infection, which can be cured with antibiotics.
Answer: A general indication of RBC in urine should not panic you. There is a certain normal level of RBCs (allowable) in urine (microscopic analysis). However, more than usual can indicate kidney damage; if you have done these tests through a doctor, they will have told you whether you need to visit again and what the story is.
It also could just mean that there is a bladder infection or the person is just getting over one.
It can happen by contamination of the urine specimen if a female has this and test was done around the time of menstruation.
What are white blood cells called when found in urine?
pyuria, means that pus and abnormal levels of leukocytes are present in the urine; a postitive result when testing for a urinary tract infection (UTI).
Answer: The problem is not blood in the urine itself. Rather blood in the urine is a sign of something. Something that is not right somewhere within the urogenital tract. For men and women. It could be something as simple as a low-grade infection. It might be a bladder or kidney stone, bobbling around causing irritation of the lining and therefore blood. Or it may be an early warning sign of a kideny cancer, ureteral cancer or even a bladder cancer. Could be a urinary tract infection. However take her to a urologist even if your doctor throws antibiotics at the problem or says come back in a few months and will see if the problem still exists. Find a urologist get her to it.
Answer: White blood cells in your urine can mean that there is an infectionpresent. You may have a urinary tract infection, kidney infection,or a bladder infection all of which can be treated with medication.
Answer: There are seven main types of white blood cell:
Some of these are further divded into subtypes, which all have separate tasks in the body. For example, lymphocytes include B-cells, T-cells (which itself has some subsubtypes) and NK-cells. For further detail on and explanations of what each type does, see the related links.
