Hello!

Thank you for the query.

This test indicates simple symptoms like frequent urinating, burning when urinating, lower abdominal pain. It is necessary to have antibiotics therapy (for example Ciprofloxacine 500mg 2x1 during 5 days) and have urine analysis repeated after the end of this treatment. Increased water intake is also advisable.

Hope this will help. Feel free to ask further questions.
Regards.
