High levels of white blood cells in urine. What could that mean?

Pyuria: White blood cells in urine usually are there because of an infection in the urinary tract. However, they can also be there in large numbers in a female when there is a vaginal infection or when she is having her period (always see red cells also in this situation). My best advice is to see your doctor and have a urine culture done to see what is going on.

What causes high protein, leukocytes & white blood cells?

Proteinuria/pyuria: Leucocytes are white blood cells (wbcs). So, high protein and high wbcs equals infection until proven otherwise by a negative urine culture. Take infection out of the equation, then some time or damage to the kidney filters is next on my list, but when this happens there is usually red cells in the urine. This takes me back to urine infection or some other type of genitourinary infection.
