How will I know what does a slightly elevated white blood count and white cells in urine mean?

It could be infectio

Blood
Infections are a common cause of high white blood cell count. White cells in the urine may be due to infection in the urinary tract but sometimes it is simply due to contamination of the urine...so the urince sample needs to be collected cleanly and carefully to avoid contamination.

Dr. Dan E. Fisher answered:

My husband has blood in urine and test indicates elevated monocytes and gamma gt what does this mean ?

Not sure.

Hematuria
I don't believe there is a connection here. I suspect you have collected some random data. What you really need to know is what symptoms he has and how these labs and other unmentioned labs compare to priors. His doctor should probably explain these to him.

Went to Dr, I have to see radiology and urology, what does it mean to have blood in urine, elevated red blood cells. But no pain when urinanating.?

Many things

Blood
However, when there is painless hematuria (blood in urine) a malignancy needs to be ruled out. If you have elevated red blood cells, could either be reactionary or pathologic. Another reason to keep your doctor appointments. Hope this helps.

Dr. Jack Rubin answered:

What does it mean if I have high nitrates and protein in urine?

Abnormal urine

Urine
Under normal conditions, urine contains no nitrates (N). N may be a sign of a UTI. You should see a physician have a urine sent off of a culture and, if there are bacteria take a course of antibiotics. Repeat the urine analysis and if you still have protein, you should see a nephrologist for a 24 hour urine collection for creatinine clearance and protein as well as getting some blood work.

When you have high levels of nitrates in urine test but show no white blood cells in the urine test what does this mean?

Probable bacteruria

Open-uri20130323-3627-14nh2w5
Possible to have a UTI without white cells in urine. Nitrite urine test is usually only positive in presence of bacteria. Suggest you get a urine culture to delineate a UTI, identify bacteria & which antibiotics will eliminate them.
