Although every lab test needs to be correlated with the clinical presentation, this particular lab test does not indicate the presence of a urinary tract infection or anything that is usually considered serious. I would recommend that you drink plenty of fluids and follow-up with the doctor who ordered the test if you have any persistent symptoms or other concerns. Good luck.

It is not a clinically meaningful organism nor the number of organisms isolated. Drink enough water daily so that your urine is mostly colorless.
