this test shows that you are suffering from urinary tract infection.WBC esterase is enzyme which is present in white blood cells .When WBCs(white blood cells) rupture in infection then this enzyme is released and it happen in infection when WBCs are trying to combat infection.
Hope it was helpful.

What do I need to do? Do I need medicine?
Expert:  Dr. Nomi replied 7 years ago.
Yes you have to take antibiotics as infection is not mild one.Tab Augmentin 625 mg three times a day for 5 days will be helpful.Also drink plenty of water 10 glasses per day.Cranberry juice is also good.
