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

10 month old had 2 uti's , had symptoms for #3 in less 2 months.. On meds. Culture neg, waiting to do tests could teething cause high white blood cells?

No: Teething does not cause an elevation of your white blood cell count. An elevated WBC count a this age is almost always due to an infection somewhere, and with a history of uti's already i would be looking in this area. It could be a kidney abcess, blood infection, or infection totally somewhere else in the body. There are other more rare causes of elevated wbc's, but teething is not one of them. ...Read more

Why was my ua 90° which is apparently cold, my white blood cells high, and a sore throat with a cold? What could it be? My ua didn't even show my meds

Here are some ..: Sore throat with high WBC in blood indicates your body is fighting hard against viral or bacterial invasion to your body. Normally, urinalysis is done to tell us the following features of urine: white blood cells (pyuria), red blood cells (microhematuria), protein, high bilirubin, sP. Gr, acidity, etc... And testing drugs is done for screening only not for routine UA. More? Ask Doc. ...Read more
