Hello

Thanks for the reply

From the urine routine you have typed out it looks like you are suffering from a pyelonephritis (infection of the kidney). You will need to undergo the following further tests
1. Complete blood count
2. Ultra sound abdomen and pelvis
3. Urine for culture

You will need treatment with antibiotics like a fluroquinolone for a prolonged period of time, if the culture of the urine grows some bacteria then antibiotics can be changed based on sensitivity.
Please seek help from a good nephrologist as soon as possible

I hope I was help, if you have any further queries please get back to me

I wish you good health
