Urine sediment: correct // urine culture: not assessable bcause of growth of mixed bacterial flora. Can i assume i don't have an infection?
Finding small amounts of sediment in urine, no blood/odor. Dipped myself which shows mod wbc. Horrible lower back pain (endometriosis). Any thoughts?
Could be UTI: I think it definitely could be a urinary tract infection but that should be checked out.

I recommend getting a urine sample looked at and possibly cultured, depending on what your doctor would like. Would get the sediment looked at microscopically. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Does high monocytes and low amount of WBC in blood test indicate infection? and what does high amorphous sediment in urine test mean?

If you're sick, this whispers "rule out typhoid". Amorphous sediment is simply stuff that was soluble at body temperature but crystallized as the urine cooled. It means nothing at all. ...Read more

Discuss with your doctor, but I see no cause for worry. ...Read more
Found min sediment in urine x1 wk. Dipped urine no blood or odor. Mod wbc. Horrible lower back and lower abdominal pain daily. Poss uti? Any thoughts
Possible: It is not necessary that blood be present as blood can be lysed or whole rbc and your tester does not detect the whole blood. The kidney is not really in the lower back but rather mid back but the lower abdominal pain may point to the bladder. Since there are discrepancies it is best to see your doctor and be diagnosed properly and treated appropriately. ...Read more
