What does a urine test report showing WBC level greater than 30 and WBC esterase level greater than 3 indicate?

I am experiencing slight discomfort like I have a UTI but I don t. I had a urine test shows no infection, but my WBC Esterase was 3+, my WBC 30, and Occult blood was 1+. It is uncomfortable at times especially wearing tight jeans. Do you think I need to have this checked out?

Hello,

WBC esterase 3+ is suggestive of the presence of infection in the urine. I suggest you get a urine culture and drug sensitivity.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care
