A member asked:

1 to 5 wbc in urine culture, but no bacteria found is it possible the cause can be something else though ruled out uti?

5 wcs or less in the spun urinary sediment/microscopic high power field is normal. Wbcs are seen on microscopic urinalysis and not in a urine culture. Urine cultures are performed to identify and quantify urinary bacteria..
