Welcome to Helathcare Magic,

You have done the urine culture- the standard test , criterion for the diagnosis of Urinal tract infections. The result is plenty of bacteria in your case Klebsiella pneumonia, mean you have infection , urinal tract infection caused by this bacteria; pus cells is also suggestive for infection. You didn’t mentioned any symptoms, if you have no symptoms then probably you have asymptomatic bacteruria and non complicated urinal tract infection. Usually patient with confirmed bacterial infection have following symptoms : dysuria ( painful urination), frequency, urgency, lower abdominal discomfort, or flank pain, burning sensation. That why this test, urine culture must be correlated with clinical condition, but even you are asymptomatic you have to start therapy with one of antibiotics mentioned in second and third page where you will see “ sensitive “ means this antibiotics is most effective against this bacteria. Dosage and duration you may clarify with your Doctor.
I wish you good luck and speedy recovery,
Hope this helps and I have answered your query. If you have additional queries don’t hesitate to ask.

Best Regards,
