White Blood Cells And Protein In Urine
Pyuria: White blood cells in urine usually are there because of an infection in the urinary tract. However, they can also be there in large numbers in a female when there is a vaginal infection or when she is having her period (always see red cells also in this situation). My best advice is to see your doctor and have a urine culture done to see what is going on. ...Read more

A proper specimen has less, but again the importance varies with the amount, not the fact a little shows up. ...Read more
