What do Abnormal Results Mean?

Results are compared with your symptoms and physical exam. A result that may need treatment in one patient may not need treatment in another patient.

Several circular muscles normally regulate urine flow. If any of these muscles becomes weak or stops working, you may have an increase in urine flow or urinary incontinence.

If there is a bladder outlet obstruction or if the bladder muscle is weak, you may have a decrease in urine flow.

Your health care provider should explain and discuss any abnormal results with you.
