Got some additional information from my physical. My doctor sent a note stating I needed to see a urologist. The things I see are somewhat alarming.
bilirubin, urine : positive
Blood, urine: positive
Bacteria, urine: present
Mucous, urine: present
While I know I shouldn’t Google, the most concerning is the bilirubin. It’s presence overwhelming related to liver disease. I’ve been having some pretty substantial right rib pain, so I’m pretty worried my years of daily wine intake have finally caught up.
While I will obviously speak to my doctor, I wanted to make sure none of this could be diet related. And a urologist? Seems like it could be more serious than that.
Edit: there was no bilirubin in my blood and my ALT, AST, albumin was all normal.
Thanks for reading.
