Customer Question
I have a question...

I have a question about a high Leukocyte Esterase reading in my urine

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?

Not on any medication

Doctor's Assistant: What medications do you take daily? Are you allergic to any medications?

I take vitamins, not medications

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I have a very complicated medical history, I just want to know if a reading of 25 WBC count in Leukocyte Esterase is a general UTI or something more serious

Got it--thanks

And why was the urinalysis done?

Customer reply replied 11 months ago
i had foamy urine & needed bloodwork to check on other things. I have horseshoe kidneys, and radiation 5 years ago to my entire spinal cord so I'm at higher risk of various cancers now
Doctor: Dr Chip (M.D.), Doctor replied 11 months ago

OK

That's an indication of a substantial number of white blood cells in your urine

There are no red cells in your urine so this isn't any indication of a kidney problem

So basically you've got a simple UTI and you need a course of antibiotics to clear it up

Please let me know if you need any more information
