What does this urine test report of an infant indicate?
She looks normal
Is it normal to have this report ?
Urine report is abnormal
Welcome to HCM.
Can understand your concerns.
In stools, E. Coli can be present, but in urine culture proteus is definitely infectious and needs treatment.
Child looks normal in initial stages but symptoms like fever, frequent urination occurs at late stages.
I hope this will help you.
One more thing is that my daughter still urinates in her diaper so we made her urinate in her pot and then collected the urine and gave for sample
Is it possible that report is wrong as we did not directly collect urine in sterile container
Secondly what is the treatment of this problem ?
Is it serious problem ?
No it's not same
E. Coli can be present in stools normally but in limited amount.
Proteus is present in urine only.
Antibiotic should be started according to sensitivity of organism according to culture report.
Could this be the reason behind that and also she is passing 3 to 4 stools per day
I hope it's not a serious problem at this age I.e 17 months ?
Both things are not related to each other.
Urine infection if severe results in fever, increased frequency of urine, pain abdomen.
A child can pass two to three stools per day, it's a normal thing.
I think that you should treat urine infection first, other things can be addressed later on.
Some more questions:
1) Is it treatable with antibiotics ?
2) since we did not collect urine in a sterile container rather we let her urinate in her pot and then collected urine
Can this lead to wrong report ?
3) hope it's treatable problem and not something to worry about if detected early ?
It's absolutely treatable
It's absolutely treatable, don't worry about it.
If you have doubt about collection then you can do a repeat urine culture.
Antibiotic can be started after report.
