White Blood Cells In Urine With No Uti In Child
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
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. The blood is first filtered by the kidneys, and the composition of the resulting fluid is then altered depending on the body's needs. It is composed of mostly water, and breakdown products from blood cells impart ...Read more
Still likely a UTI: You could still have a urinary tract infection (without the most common symptoms of dysuria/pain/frequency/.....), but you should also be examined for more serious conditions such as a renal inflammation (glomerulonephritis/pyelonephritis/....), or a subclinical infection (tuberculosis of the urinary tract can present as "sterile" pyuria). ...Read more
What do you think the reason is for reacuring white blood cells in urine and prety frequent urinary tract infections would be?
I had a urine dipstick test done and it showed white blood cells. Is this definitely a UTI or something more serious. ?
Definitely unsure.: WBC in the urine could be evident of an infection. Could be an inflammatory issue. Could be nothing. If the analysis showed only WBCs, then a formal urinalysis with microscopy as well as a urine culture should be sent, which would give you much more accurate results than the dipstick. ...Read more

What does it mean my white blood cells is up in my urine? What kind of infection could it be. My doctor said my uti is clear
Pyuria: White cells in your urine can come from anywhere in your genitourinary system to include the vagina and paravaginal area. My suggestion: go to your doctor and get a urine after thoroughly cleaning the entire area around your urethra and while voiding, spread your labia so that the urine goes from bladder into cup and get urine in the cup after you start peeing, not right away. ...Read more
I had a UTI last month. My doctor said he found a lot of white blood cells in my urine and asked me if i vaginal discharge. What does that mean?
Urinalysis: When a urine specimen contains wbcs they may have come from the urine, or the urine may have been contaminated by vaginal secretions or discharge. Your doctor is trying to determine the source of the wbcs. If you gave a clear midstream catch urine it is not likely that they came from the vagina. ...Read more
Burning during urination for 3-4 days . Went to doctor. Blood in urine no longer detectable visually. Red and white blood cells detected during preliminary urine analysis. Received ciprofloxacin to treat a potential UTI. Doctor did not do a physical exami
Not much to do: When the symptoms are classic urinary tract infection and the urinalysis is also agreeing, there really isn't much of a physical exam that is necessary. if you were also having significant vaginal symptoms - discharge, burning, pain with intercourse, fever and pelvic pain, then certainly a pelvic exam should also be done. ...Read more
My daughter had a urine done recently due to UTI symptoms it showed 93 WBC 1198 red blood cells no nitrates cultures grew ecoli possible causes?
If red blood cells in urine sample are higher then normal [68.20 ] ; remaining urine test was normal; does this mean I had UTI or some thing eles?
Maybe not UTI: red cells in the urine , can be from trauma, kidney disease or disease of the urinary tract. They do not often appear in UTIs without White blood cells. I suggest that you have the test repeated and discuss the results with your physician. The most common cause is contamination of the urine with menstrual blood ...Read more
Can taking 1antibiotic &1 Cipro (ciprofloxacin) reduce white blood cell count in urine? Went to doc for UTI after taking those &said there weren't many Wh blood cells
Here are some ...: It seemed you took 2 antibiotics since Cipro (ciprofloxacin) itself is an antibiotic. Finding WBC in urine suggests the presence of inflammation caused by bacteria, virus, stone, tumors, foreign body, after recent procedures, catheter, contamination at urine collection, etc., not necessarily by bacterial infection alone. Antibiotic is good only for the bacteria sensitive to it, not for anything else. So, don't... ...Read more
Does your uterus shed blood cells before your menustral starts is that why I had small trace of blood in urine. No uti or anything else.
It depends: Menstruation does not just turn on like a faucet. So there maybe a little bit of menstrual bleeding just before the full menstrual cycle begins. The small trace of blood could also be from small tears in the vaginal walls after intercourse. Or the blood might be coming from the bladder, or kidneys due to infections. So it all depends. If you have painful urination or burning than see a doc. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
No: The tests strips for uti's are not that accurate. You really need a first morning void and the specimen can be contaminated by vaginal secretions which often have white blood cells in them. Positive nitrites in urine are more suggestive of a urinary tract infection. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
No correlation: White blood cells in the urine are an indicator of inflammation or infection somewhere within the urinary tract. Common causes include bladder infections and kidney stones. But this does not predict or correlate with the concentration of any type of cells in the blood. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
