The presence of wbcs, leukocyte esterase, and nitrites are common in urinary tract infections. So more info is needed. ...Read more

The long stringy white stuff is protein or casts that have polymerized in the urine. If you have symptoms of UTI, then you can be treated, but if not then you do not need immediate treatment. Repeat urinalysis for protein presence may be recommended at this time. ...Read more
