Strep B In Urine
Urine culture - 10-49k beta hemolytic strep, group b - other gram positive organisms from urine. Can you interpret?
Urine is the product of the kidneys, which is produced to eliminate the waste products of metabolism, manage body fluid balance, &maintain acid-base balance.

Urine culture showed strep viridans 10,000-25,000 bacterial colonies. Mild burning at the end of urination in a female. Should antibiotics be used?
Maybe, maybe not: Strep viridans is not a common cause of UTI but is often present in the genital area and easily contaminates voided urine. And real UTI usually has higher numbers. But if careful clean-catch urine specimens show signs of infection (increased WBC without epithelial cells) and had the same culture result, with no other bacteria, a trial of treatment might be warranted. Discuss with your doctor. ...Read more
Yes: Group B strep can be a normal finding in the intestinal germ profile. It has little significance unless it invades the lungs/blood of a newborn during or after delivery but occasionally causes some UTI's in women. To get to the intestines it will enter through the mouth/throat. I wouldn't sweat it and wonder why someone would bother to report it. ...Read more
No leukocytes in multiple urinalyses but group b strep in urine culture. Some pelvic pressure/burning. Drs won't treat - say uti would show leukocytes?
GBS can cause UTI: Group B strep can cause UTI. If the culture was properly collected (i.e. a good "clean catch" specimen), and especially if more than one culture has been positive and/or you have typical UTI symptoms, treatment usually would be prescribed. UTI usually shows elevated urinary leukocytes, but there probably are exceptions. Maybe seek consult with a specialist, e.g. infectious diseases. Good luck! ...Read more
Blood culture please: Most of the time viridans group streptococcus in the urine is of no importance, it is not usually the root cause of a UTI and often a contaminant.

Since 2013 urine cultures show group b strep 50000-100000. Delivered 2 babies gbs+ for both. Is this somethig that will always show in my urine? Harm?
Maybe/not: GBS is an incidental finding in the poop of everyone. Because of the structure of the genitals it is a common contaminant of the female genital tract. As many as a 3rd of women carry it off & on at any given time. Other that a risk for vulnerable newborns and the occasional UTI it is considered benign. Oral meds will not eradicate it, which is why they are given IV during labor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Is it common to test positive for strep a on rapid strep and a month later test positive for strep c on throat culture?
Not unusual: Group C strep is frequently found on throat culture and is part of the normal flora that reside in the throat.
