do you have any burning with urination? or increased frequency or urgency?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
no, none of those symptoms
Expert:  Dr. Cameron replied 5 years ago.
then it is a false negative. usually LE+ is associated with urinary tract infections, but your number is only 1+ (out of 4).
As well, they would have spun the urine down for microscopy if they thought you had an infection.

warm regards
