In brief: Urine analysis

There are many things that come together to diagnose a uti.
The epithelial cell suggest a poor catch and contamination. Without voiding symptoms1 red cell and 3 white cells can be normal. >3 rbc/hpf in 2/3 specimines is the definition of microscopic hematuria and should be worked up with a urologist. Especially in a smoker.
