Detailed Answer:
Thank you for contacting HCM with your health care concerns

You are concerned that your urinalysis showed Morganella morgani with a colony count of 10,00-25,000. The reason your doctor did not address this is that the colony count is not high enough to signify a bladder infection. This low count is usually seen with contamination of the sample. To be a true infection the colony count needs to be greater than 100,000. So at this time no treatment is required.

I hope I answered your question. Please contact us again if you have any additional questions.
