Diabetologist 's  Response
as per the urine test results you provided ,everything is normal
you have no infection in the urine
in yeast infection you may have similar problem but you will be having a curdy white discharge and itching along with it
other causes of burning micurition are
•Acute urinary retention
•Urinary obstruction
Urethral obstruction
Urethral stricture
Urethral injury
•Renal stones
•Bladder stones
•Renal calculi infection(kidney stone infection)
your doctor may help you in ruling out these options
try taking good amount of water
