I recently had a urology done. It came back with nitrites in my urine. But i was told that high amounts of caffeine before the test could cause this?

In brief: Repeat

Nitrites on a urinalysis may indicate an infection.
Try to get a repeat urinalysis including microscopic exam and a urine culture.

In brief: U nitrite 2nd coff?

Not certain which test they use so would need to look that up to see if coffee interferes.
Recommend retesting without coffee.
