Someone pleeeeeeease help me. I have lupus nephrits. I felt like I was getting a typical UTI so I went in for some tests. Some of the abnormal out of range results that I am wondering about are the URIC ACID CRYSTALS out of range... said 2+ Mucus 1+ and Creatnine 1.12 Albumin 5.1

So are these way out of range? What in the world is the Uric Acid Crystals about??? Please help me! Does it look like a kidney infection or kidney stones?

Hey Kookla, from what I can tell, Laurie...correct me if I am wrong, but uric acid crystals are a sign of gout. Have you had any experience with gout? Any swelling on the side of your foot where the big toe meets your foot bone? What about any painful bumps anywhere?

Since you have Lupus Nephritis, what is your normal creatnine? Is it close to normal range for ou?
