The tests were done based on a morning urine, mid stream catch.

The results are:
Urine Color: light yellow

Protein: Negative
Sugar: Negative
Blood: Negative

Rbc: 0-1
Pus cells: 1-3
Epithleal cells: Ocassional

On the month of February I had Rbc 2-3 and Pus cells 1-3. I was given ofloxacin. I also had a Ultrasound test: the results were normal.

Hello and welcome to Healthcaremagic.

Thank you for writing to us.

Let me help you by providing information on not only the presence of pus cells, but other significant findings as well. They are:
-Pus cells: Most commonly seen in the presence of an infection. Although it can also be present in rare cases of contamination of the urine sample, in such instances it can report a false-positive report for an infection
-Blood/RBC cells: Also indicative of an infection. Although not always present in an infection. It can also be present in other conditions like stones in the renal tract, etc.
-Bacteria: This is also clearly indicative of an infection (a bacterial infection). As is also seen in your report
-Epithelial cells: These cells are even present in small quantities in normal individuals, as shedding of the epithelial layer is a normal occurrence. But if found in more than normal quantities, it is indicative of an infection

All the above explained parameters were abnormal in your urine analysis, thus it is so far indicative of an infection. I would advise a urine culture examination to confirm the presence of the infection and to find the infection-causing organism, which will aid in treatment of your condition.

I hope you found my response helpful and informative. Do write back to me for any further clarifications, I would be happy to help.

Best wishes.
