What cells would be present in urine if a person had glomerlonephritis?
Definition Urinary casts are tiny tube-shaped particles made up of white blood cells, red blood cells, or kidney cells. They form in kidney structures called tubules. Casts are held together by a protein released by the kidney. The content of a cast can tell your health care provider whether your urine is healthy or abnormal. Types of urinary casts include: Fatty casts Granular casts Hyaline casts Red blood cell casts Renal tubular epithelial casts Waxy casts White blood cell casts Alternative Names Hyaline casts; Granular casts; Renal tubular epithelial casts; Waxy casts; Casts in the urine; Fatty casts; Red blood cell casts; White blood cell casts How the test is performed A clean-catch (midstream) urine sample is needed, preferably the first morning urine sample. For information on how to collect this sample, see: Clean-catch urine culture How to prepare for the test No special preparation is needed. How the test will feel The test involves only normal urination, and there is no discomfort. Why the test is performed Your doctor may order this test to see if your kidneys are working properly and to check for certain conditions such as kidney infections, glomerular disease, and interstitial kidney disease. Normal Values There are different types of casts. The presence of a few hyaline casts is normal. What abnormal results mean Abnormal results may include: Fatty casts are seen in people who have lipids in urine, usually as a complication of nephrotic syndrome. Granular casts are a sign of underlying kidney disease. However, they are nonspecific and may be found in people with many different kidney disorders. Hyaline casts are usually caused by dehydration, exercise, or diuretic medicines. Red blood cell casts are a sign of bleeding into the kidney tubule. They are seen in many diseases affecting the glomerulus, including IgA nephropathy, lupus nephritis, Goodpasture syndrome, and Wegener's granulomatosis. Renal tubular epithelial cell casts reflect damage to the tubule cells. They are seen in renal tubular necrosis, viral disease (such as CMV nephritis), and kidney transplant rejection. Waxy casts are associated with advanced kidney disease and chronic kidney failure. White blood cell (WBC) casts are more common in interstitial cell kidney diseases such as interstitial inflammation, pyelonephritis, and parenchymal infection. This test may also show: Acute nephritic syndrome Glomerulonephritis - chronic Glomerulonephritis - post-streptococcal Glomerulonephritis - rapidly progressive Complicated urinary tract infection Necrotizing vasculitis Rhabdomyolysis Primary amyloid Secondary amyloid Systemic lupus erythematosus References Landry DW, Bazari H.

How do you say washed in french?
I can think of three contexts where you could need the word "washed': A washed cloth(as in one that has been washed). Washed functions as an adjective. washed - lavé une drap lavée He has washed all the clothes. Past participle. washed - lavé Il a lavé touts les vêtements. He washed a lot of things. Imparfait. washed - lavait Il lavait beaucoup de choses.
