i have a 2 yr old daughter that got diagnosed with a uti 15 days ago at a med. center. they found traces of protein & moderate amounts of blood in her urine , with the dip strip. they sent her results to the lab. this was june 3rd. they put her on amoxicillin . well june 15th she started having symptoms again so i took her in the the g.r.a.p.e.s. clinic. dip strip said there was white blood & red blood cells in her urine, she goes back on an antibiotic to treat this uti. well today june 18th we find out she never had a uti but she has high amounts of white blood & red blood cells & protein in her urine. what could be the cause of that???? and is it something i need to worry about????

Thanks for writing to health care magic.

Does your child have problems like swelling of the face, limbs or abdomen. Does she have a cola colored urine. Is her urination decreased in frequency?
What is her blood pressure like.
What about her urine culture report?
Your child needs further investigations to rule out certain conditions that present with these investigation findings.
Hope this helps
Take care
