More in diagnosisis.: Several items you shouldconsider: 1. Are you are having typical symptoms of UTI? Tthese include urgency, frequency, and burning on urinating. 2. What does the urine culture grow since the answer guides antibiotics. 3. "Lots of white blood cells" in the urine and a "little protein" does not always mean UTI; it CAN mean some kidney condition not necessarily related to an infection. You need followup
