Couldn't find what you looking for?


occasional epithelial are found with pus cells ranging 1 to 2. PH Value of 5.0 with all other normal. What could be the reasons. And are all the mentioned value normal?


Hi there,

Ph value in urine is important because it shows us whether urine is diluted acid or base solution. If you have lower Ph value this means that your urine is more acid than a solution. On the other hand higher Ph value shows the high alkalinity of the urine. If you are having problems with these numbers the main problem is in kidneys because they should maintain the normal acid base balance. When you have excess amount of base or alkali in the body you will have alkaline urine. This can happen because of urinary tract obstruction or pyloric obstruction. Also chronic renal failure can cause the condition that you have. I hope this helped a bit.  

All the best,
