Recurring utis, lower left back pain under rib cage, high white blood cell count in urine, nausea, weakness. Causes?

You could have vessico-ureteral reflux or a large post void bladder residual. I would recommend that you see a urologist and get a renal/bladder ultrasound and voiding cysto-urethrogram. Good luck. ...Read more

Can steroid abuse cause high white blood cell count and protein in your urine ? My white blood cell count is 15

Can steroid abuse cause high white blood cell count and protein in your urine ? My white blood cell count is 15

Maybe but...: Our first concern is to rule out a serious infection (is your peripheral smear abnormal? Are the white cells primitive / angry-looking? Do you have symptoms?) and real kidney disease (how much protein, is it mostly albumin?) i hope you'll reconsider anabolic steroid use (if it's this kind of steroid); every guy i know who's tried this has regretted it. ...Read more
