Brief Answer:
She has UTI and needs to be treated with appropriate antibiotic

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for query .

Based on the report of routine Urine analysis of your aunt I would state that she has severe UTI and needs to be treated if neglected she may land in to problems like Chronic Renal failure due to damage to her kidneys or septicemia ,stone formation etc .

Get her routine urine test and urine culture done to find out the organisms causing this infection and antibiotics to which they are sensitive to.

Give her broad spectrum antibiotics like Cefixime along with urinary antiseptic like
Nitrofurantoin twice daily and urine alkaliser thrice daily.Later on switch on to appropriate antibiotics as per culture report.

Get the prescription of medicines from your family Physician.

Ensure she drinks drink more water to keep her urine dilute .

Hope I have answered your query ,please feel free to ask if you have more questions,I shall be happy to help you
Thanks and Regards.
