Hello and thank you for posting your query on HCM
Your urinalysis report suggest that there is mild infection in your urinary tract as suggested by 15-20 pus cells.
Presence of crstals of amorphous urates forms in acidic urine which has been refrigerated.
There is no disease associated with it.
all other results are within normal limits.
Turbid appearance is due to presence of pus cells and nothing to worry for mucus threads.
You just need treatment for the mild infection.

Thanks and take care
