Brief Answer: suggests UTI Detailed Answer: Hello, I have read your query. Here is the interpretation of your test result. Urine color was XXXXXXX - it is normal. WBC was 6-10 - it is high, suggests urinary infection WBC eat erase was abnormal +1. - is it WBC esterase that you are talking about? If yes, this is abnormal, and again indicates a urinary infection. My suggestion to you would be to get a urine culture done to identify the infecting organism and take necessary antibiotics for the same. Overall, the test report indicates urinary tract infection (UTI) that requires treatment. Hope this helps you. Get well soon. Regards,
