Dear Anita,
UTI stands for Urinary Tract Infection. This is a bacterial infection, affecting any part of the urinary tract. The symptoms include frequent urge to urinate, burning sensation or pain during urination.In severe cases fever with chills. Females fall prey to UTI more commonly due to the shorter length of the urethra as compared to males.

In your case the urine analysis findings if associated with the above mentioned complaints are suggestive of UTI(mild). If you do not have any symptoms, then you would not require any medications just based on the urine analysis.

You need to
1) Increase your water intake (10-12 glasses/day)
2) Barley water helps in reducing the burning
3) Avoid using public toilets
4) Do not have intercourse when the bladder is full and also make it a habit to go to the toilet after intercourse.(sex is the cause of 75–90% of bladder infections, with the risk of infection related to the frequency of sex.)
5) Maintain hygiene.

Ayurveda Specialist Dr. Rajesh Lakhanpaul's  Response
You are having mild Urinary infection and more intake of liquids to increase urinary output will flush out the infecting bacteria. herbal alkalisers like uralka prevent further growth of bacteria. Medicines like gokshur guggul and bangshil eradicate bacteria and make tract free from infection.

hello Anita,
Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum,
UTI Means Urinary Tract Infection .i.e. infection in the urinary canal which starts from urinary bladder to external urinary orifice (urethra).It can occur due to many reasons but main reason is hygiene.
Your report shows 4-6 puss cells and 15-20 epithelial cells which is not a heavy infection
You can take pyrogenum 1m/1dose of homeopathic medicine along with hepar sulph 30/4 tabs 3 times in a day for 3-4 days.

Measures you should take to get rid off UTI.
Take plenty of water
Take more liquids in food than solids.
Keep your private parts neat and clean.
Shave regularly
Avoid contimination by clearing your white discharge problem if you suffer from.
