Have been feeling a bit crap of late with nausea and crampy belly. Work in vet clinic and did urine dipstick which showed 3+ blood and strongly positive for nitrites but no leukocytes. Is UTI still possible?

Hi there ...

Positive Nitrite test indicates UTI , in the absence of Lekocytes in test this suggests that you have infection which is either at its initial stages or either it is from less virulence organism , or voided urine .

So yes possibility still exist specially when you have other symptoms like nausea , cramps and positive blood in test.

It would be ideal for you to have URINE Culture for exact diagnosis , and to know what kind of germ is causing this .

Regards ***** ***** luck .

Please leave positive feedback for me .

Thanks .
