Cloudy Urine Causes – Turbidity by cells or cell debris


Red blood cells in urine is a major cause of cloudy urine, that often make the urine change color to red or red-brown. This type one is also known as hematuria (blood in urine).

Red blood cells cloud the urine. In contrast, although the hemoglobin can also cause urinary discoloration, but not cloudy urine.


White blood cells in the urine is as a result of urine infection, often occurring in renal pelvis infection, renal tuberculosis, bladder infection, urethra infection.

Urine color is white or whitish, namely white and turbid urine. And it is inevitable the white cloudy with other urinary impurities, such as bacteria, precipitated salts, and even pus.


Bacteria in urine occur in the context of urinary tract infections (e.g., cystitis or pyelonephritis) or after too long to stand (Bacteria can multiply themselves in the urine stored at room temperature).

The bacteria urine is cloudy (nebulous). Even after this condition has been standing, bacterial impurities do not deposit.


Pus is a mixture of white blood cells and dissolved tissues. Severe urinary tract infections will lead to pus cells in urine.

After placing, pus cells will precipitate on the bottom of the container (cup, tube), with the appearance of white cloud flocculation.


Mucosal epithelial cells of the urinary tract are usually present only in small quantities and therefore usually cause invisible cloudy urine.

Urinary tract infections and renal damage can both lead to epithelial cells in the urine, such as renal tubular epithelial cells, squamous epithelial cells, or transitional epithelial cells in urine.
