Hyaline casts are not specific to kidney pathology and are often found in urinalysis post-exercise. However, in the presence of other signs and symptoms, they may be a clue that something is wrong with the kidney.

hyalin casts in urine show signs of possible kidney issues

DefinitionUrinary 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 castsGranular castsHyaline castsRed blood cell castsRenal tubular epithelial castsWaxy castsWhite blood cell castsAlternative NamesHyaline casts; Granular casts; Renal tubular epithelial casts; Waxy casts; Casts in the urine; Fatty casts; Red blood cell casts; White blood cell castsHow the test is performedA 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 cultureHow to prepare for the testNo special preparation is needed.How the test will feelThe test involves only normal urination, and there is no discomfort.Why the test is performedYour 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 ValuesThere are different types of casts. The presence of a few hyaline casts is normal.What abnormal results meanAbnormal 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 tubules. They are seen in renal tubular necrosis, viral disease (such as CMV nephritis), and 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 syndromeGlomerulonephritis - chronicGlomerulonephritis - post-streptococcalGlomerulonephritis - rapidly progressiveComplicated urinary tract infectionNecrotizing vasculitisRhabdomyolysisPrimary amyloidSecondary amyloidSystemic lupus erythematosusWhat the risks areThere are no risks.

High LPF levels can indicate problems with the kidneys in the casts, also known as hyaline casts. Depending on whether it is the white blood cell count that's high, or the red, is what would indicate which issue you have.
