Labs only part of it: Labs are best interpreted in the clinical context -so depending on 'what' symptoms you have or don't have that is the right way to interpret this information. Just looking at your urine studies I'm not really impressed with anything -probably you need to drink a little more water. If you had urinary symptoms though, that's where you need to home in. Given your CRP is up slightly I would follow it.

Labs: Hello, you dont state what is being checked specifically, but this looks like urine that has been contaminated with a vaginal discharge ( leuk est+1, squam epi mod and few RBCs) and blood test with CRP (slight elevation) and GFR is reduced but within normal range. I would repeat UA if you have symptoms and get CLEAN CATCH! thanks
