There are several components to a urinalysis such as specific gravity, pH, leukocyte esterase, protein, glucose, nitrite, bilirubin, urobilinogen, blood and a microscopic analysis including white blood cells, red blood cells, bacteria, epithelial cells, etc. A urinalysis can be used to diagnose anything from kidney stones to pyelonephritis so in order to know what positive 3 means, you will have to know which component showed the result.

What does a positive result for leukocyte esterase ua from a urinalysis mean?

You may have an infection.A positive finding of the enzyme leukocyte esterase in urinalysis indicates the presence of white blood cells in the urine. This normally suggests inflammation of some sort, often from a urinary tract infection. A simple dipstick test as part of a urinalysis can detect the presence of this enzyme.Leukocyte esterase in urinalysis functions as a screening test. A negative result makes it unlikely an infection exists, thus making further testing of the urinary with a microscopic examination and urine culture for bacteria usually unnecessary.Although a urinary tract infection is the most common cause of leukocyte esterase in urinalysis some other and rarer causes for the positive result with a negative microorganism culture do exist. These include:ChlamydiaInfection with a sexually transmitted microorganism called ureaplasma urealyticumBalanitis, a skin disease occurring at the head of the penisCancer of the bladderKidney stonesTuberculosisA foreign body in the urinary tractGlomerulonephritis, an inflammation of small blood vessels in the kidneysPrescription drugs such as corticosteroids

What does LE mean in the result field of a urinalysis?

On a urinalysis, LE most likely stands for Leukocyte Esterase. This is an enzyme that is released by white blood cells and thus marks for their presence in the urine. Elevated levels of LE may indicate the presence of a urinary tract infection or infection of the bladder or kidneys. A positive test will usually be followed by a culture for certain forms of bacteria that could be present in urine.
