Loose stools: Sounds like infectious colitis. Be cautious if you have pain with defacation, since this can represent a peri-rectal abscess, which is a life threatening condition.

Normal, irrelevant: Despite advice you can find on line, "stool analysis" is not recommended except specific tests for particular problems in people with symptoms or otherwise at high risk for certain digestive or intestinal disorders. In a healthy person without symptoms, these findings are meaningless. See your doctor if you have symptoms like unexplained diarrhea, abdominal pain, etc. Otherwise no worries. ...Read more
Suggests infection: Fecal leukocytes are not normally present in stool in healthy individuals, and if 6-10 is considered moderately elevated and suggest inflammation from infection, usually a bacterial infection such as Salmonella or Shigella or potentially Ameba. Viruses or allergy cause less reaction. Leukocytes in stool can also be associated with inflammatory bowel disease, but this is unlikely in an infant. ...Read more

Amoebic dysentery: Did they check for amoeba/parasites on this stool sample? I assume they did. If there was no evidence of amoebiasis, then it's probably gone. The inflammation in the gut can take a longer time to go away however. If your child is still having diarrhea, I recommend you talk with your doctor about how to help the intestines recover from the recent infection. ...Read more
