Hi and welcome to the forum! I am glad that I can help you.
You want to know what your results of a UA HGB test mean.
UA HGB is a test that detects the presence of blood (hemoglobin) in the urine. This molecule is usually not found in the urine, but in case of kidney infection or a medical condition called glomerulonephritis, blood may be found in the urine sample. The presence of erytrocytes in the urine sediment may also indicate urinary bladder infection and kidney stones, if additional symptoms that may suggest this medical conditions are present.
Given the data that you described, it is likely that your results show that you experienced a urinary tract infection. Consume cranberry juice or tea, because these plants have a uroantiseptic effect. You may also consider having a bacterial culture with an antibiogram from a urine sample to rule out possible urinary tract infection. See a nephrologist if you still experience hematuria after antibiotic treatment for urinary tract infection.
Please keep in mind that I provide medical information only. I am not able to diagnose medical conditions online. Please contact your doctor or other qualified heathcare provide such as a nephrologist for further advice and information about diagnosis and treatment options.
