In brief: HC of pyelonephritis

When you are told that the urine test was - it just means it did not grow on the culture media that they chose to grow on.
Try taking Ellura, a cranberry extract which prevents the bacteria from attaching to your bladder wall. It's not an antibiotic but it works quite well.
