Welcome to Justanswer website.Myself Dr Josh and I’m happy to help with your question today

WBC esterase is a urine test to look for white blood cells and other signs of infection. WBC esterase shows leukocytes ,WBC(white blood celles) in the urine.

WBCs in the urine may mean a urinary tract infection (UTI) is present.

So as your urinalysis came out with the wbc esterase +1 ,this may indicate mild urinary tract infection.

Hope this helped
