Dear Scott,

Presence of a few white cells in the urine of a girl child is not unusual, unless your baby has excessive crying while urinating, or fever or the urine does not look clear but looks hazy. You should probably is normal. In any case, I would like to know why her urine was tested in the first place. If the doctor was looking for infection, you should check out the report with the doctor.

I have blood in my urine which I have had for years and keep an eye on with my urologist. He recently told me I have white blood cells in my urine but tested negative for abnormal cells. Now I am experiencing pain in my public bone. First it started on the left side now it is in both sides. What is going with me?

hi, I am 23yrs old male. Done blood, urine dipstick and urine cytoscopy and ultra sound tests. Evrything seems to be normal except some of the things in the urine routine test. I have got RBC 10-15hpf trace albumin puss cells 5-7hpf bacteria + Uric acid crystals present. I had urine infection a 3 months back and had high bacteria and puss cells. I had my antibiotics and the RBC became 35hpf while all the other things came to normal. Now, its more than 2 months and the RBC level has been 15HPF for the last 2 weeks and the puss cells & bacteria are again coming up and there are bubbles formed after urination. What could be my problem?
