Usually normal: Leukocyte esterase released by lysed neutrophils and macrophages is a surrogate marker of the presence of white blood cells (WBCs).

Would a first void urine leukocyte esterase test be positive in a male with mycoplasma genitilium?
Not necessarily: It might or might not. If no symptoms like urethral discharge or uncomfortable urination, LE is even more likely to be negative. But MG generally isn't a particularly harmful infection. It's rarely necessary to test if there are no symptoms, and asymptomatic infections do not necessarily need treatment. Low chance of harm either to infected persons or their sex partners. Nothing to worry about. ...Read more
Will a first void urine leukocyte esterase test most likely be positive in men who have some sort of STI that causes urethritis?
Doesn't matter: See my reply to identical question that referred to Mycoplasma genitalium. Same answer. If no symptoms, and negative tests for gonorrhea and chlamydia, asymptomatic urethritis is not a health problem and doesn't need testing. You're obviously obsssed witih this (maybe your 4th or 5th question?) -- probably no need. Work w/ your sexual health clinic, but HealthTap cannot help any further. ...Read more
Does an urinalysis report of: leukocyte esterase 1+, urine WBC 6-10 and squamous epithelial cells 0-5 mean an infection?
Not necessarily: Voided (vs. catheterized) urine specimens in women are potentially subject to contamination. Urine culture is the definitive method of determining the presence of infection. Another important point is that in older women in the absence of symptoms, this kind of urine abnormality alone or even a positive culture should not be treated with antibiotics (asymptomatic bacteriuria). ...Read more

Any symptoms?: If you do not have any symptoms, there is no point in chasing laboratory results. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. ...Read more

Discuss results: The Dr who ordered the test needs to provide feedback to you in a way that clarifies the impact on your Dx and Tx options. It should make sense to you or it is not a finished piece of work. Get a consult and perhaps bring someone along to help you understand and remember the details. ...Read more
Hi I have just dipsticked my urine it show ph of 9 and leukocyte is this anything to worry about.
Stone?: Some bacteria like Proteus associated with Struvite stones produce an enzyme called Urease which increases urine pH and can produce white cells or leukocytes in the urine. This is one possibility. The second is that you are taking a medication that alkalinizes urine. Please review your med list. ...Read more
All urine results, neg, but LEUKOCYTE ESTERASE shows MODERATE. What does this mean? Last time it was SMALL/Clear. This time MODERATE/SLIGHTLY-CLOUDY.
Urinalysis: Cloudy urine and urine containing white blood cells(leukocytes) don't necessarily signify a urinary tract infection. The white cells may be contaminants from a vaginal infection or discharge. A clean catch urine culture would rule in or out a urinary tract infection. If you have a vaginal discharge, see your gynecologist and he/she can order any appropriate urinary tests if no vaginal infection ...Read more
