My urine test finding were WCB Esterase trace, Leukocytes 25 WBC 6-10, epithet non renal >10. I was dealing with a yeast infection. Is there more?
Had urine culture three weeks ago showed no growth had another one last week it showed yeast infection Why do both show high levels of WBC?
Leukocytes in urine: WBCs are present in response to almost any form of inflammation. It sounds as if you have a UTI if the urine was collected by a clean midstream catch. If not, the yeast may have present in the urine through contamination from the vaginal secretions and if you have Candida vulvovaginitis that is probably the explanation. Hope this helps. ...Read more
My 6 yr old girl has a urinebsample taken everyrhing came back negative exceptq leukocyte esterase large A diagnosis yeast infection does this seem rt?
Hard to comment: Many urine collections at this age are a "squat pee".They are told to go in and pee in a container. The actual sample is both direct urine and pee that cycles throughout their vagina and drags along any additional debris within. I consider these worthless and studies thereon undependable. A proper "clean catch" or cath specimen is better. These results sound like a squat pee. I'd get a better study. ...Read more
Will yeast infections show leukocytes on a urineanalysis dipstick? I have a 4 year old daughter that constantly has large leukocytes in her urine?
? collection method?: Most get pee at this age from having a kid pee in a cup. Unfortunately this squat pee is a vaginal washout mixed with pee and this can show leukocytes. I try to get moms to clean the area and get a labia spread (like a boy) pee if possible. If not a catheter specimen will bypass the washout effect. Kids with some stress or fever may show leukocytes in their pee, but it should not be a large amount ...Read more
Once every several days my urine is a little cloudy. I don't have simptoms of UTI or yeast infection.
Young people have: Small amounts of protein that can look like white strands in the urine, often making it look cloudy. Asymptomatic microproteinuria is usually harmless and transient in young growing adults, but older adults should not have proteinuria. If you have no symptoms, I would not be too preoccupied with your urine, unless you see blood or pink tinge, or if you have itching/ pain on urination etc. ...Read more
I had a trace of protein in my urine, but I also have a yeast infection. Can a yeast infection cause this trace of protein?
Yes and no: If the urine also showed epithelial cells and white blood cells, then it is contaminated and the protein could be from that. If it is a clean, properly collected urine specimen then a vaginal yeast infection would not cause a change in the urine protein. Get it rechecked after you clear up the infection. ...Read more

I have no signs of a yeast infection but my urine smells like yeast. Is it because of the valacyclovir and camrese?
Yeast is unlikely: Symptoms like this almost never are due to yeast. It sounds like you have a prostate problem, or maybe a bacterial urinary tract infection. Conceivably an STD like gonorrhea, chlamydia, or nongonococcal urethritis (NGU), but these are relatively uncommon at your age. My bet is on prostatitis. See your doctor or urologist; or start with one of UK's excellent NHS GUM clinics. ...Read more

See answer: Vaginal yeast infection usually associated with whitish vaginal discharge, redness, vaginal irritation/burning/itching.

All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, your count is not abnormal and it is not likely that you are catching yeast from your wife, even if she has it. Yeast is in the air.
