I have tiny small splecks in my urine if I look up really

Customer Question

I have tiny small white splecks in my urine if I look up really close to it, I’ve had it for weeks now (could be longer but I’ve not noticed before) is this cause for concern? I don’t have any other symptoms of UTI or any bladder problems but I am concerned. Could you help?

Thank you for waiting.

I understand your concern.

I am sorry for your symptoms.

Such urine can be from a few causes.

Dehydration is a common cause.

There can be mixture of mucus with urine.

Other causes can be urine stone.

Excess protein & crystals like calcium pyrophosphate can cause such urine.

Inflammation of urethra can cause it.

But it is usually associated with pain, burning which you do not have.

If the symptom continues, I would advise to take an examination by doctor.

An urinalysis can be taken along with ultrasound of kidneys.

Please try to take plenty of fluid.

Fluid intake often helps.

I hope this information will be helpful.

If you have any query, please feel free to ask.

Your satisfaction is my goal.
