Why were the urine tests done when you did not have any symptoms? Did you have an ultrasound scan done?
Thanks for your question.
Basically a count greater than 10 white blood cells (WBCs)/mL is considered abnormal in urine. However sometimes this may be due to contamination. This contamination may be diagnosed by the presence of numerous squamous epithelial cells in the urine. However along with the increased WBC the accompanying trace of blood and RBC in urine do suggest that there is an infection. To diagnose this please have a urine culture done.
Therefore I would suggest taking a second opinion.
Thanks for your reply.
You have had a urine routine test done and not urine culture. Yes it is normal to have up to 2 RBCs/hpf in a urine sample. Also having a transient increase in the RBC can be seen in young people. Therefore the next step for you is to have urine culture done and also have the urine routine repeated after one month to see whether the raised RBC count is persistent.
You are welcome.
