Leukocytes In Urine

Recommended Posts

I just found out today that I have leukocytes in my urin, along with a high white blood count. I haven't been able to talk to the doc yet (not until a week from today). Soooo....I was wondering if any of you have had this and know what it means? I'm assuming I have either kidney or a urinary tract infection??? Could it mean anything else?

I also found out my cholesterol is high, and my thyroid seems to be a bit low. I know those two go hand in hand sometimes. I was shocked to find out about the cholesterol. I'm only 33. I'm five foot four, and weight 106. Doesn't seem like I fit the profile. ??

Thanks for any info you can offer. :-)

You say you have high cholestrol. Can you be a little more detalied? How high is it (total cholestrol) and more importantly, what is the ratio of the good to bad, i.e., HDL/LDL? The leukocytes are probably just a reflection of a UTI. They are common with women. My wife gets them several times a year.

Are you on an antibiotic yet for the high leukocytes in urine? Is there any way you can get some attention before your next scheduled appointment. UTI's are normally easily dispensed with by antibiotics but if you wait too long you could do damage to your kidneys or go septic. Do you have an urgent care you could go to?

Well, they said the cholesterol was at 217. I'm not sure what the normal range is. I don't know about the good vs. the bad cholesterol. I found out all this info over the phone from the receptionist.

I'm not on an antibiotic. I haven't spoken with the doctor since he got the test results back. I don't have any symptoms of a UTI, or kidney infection. Could this have to do with a yeast infection? I have been battling an intestinal yeast infection, but not vaginal. Anyway, I have an appointment with the doctor in six days. I would think that if I needed an antibiotic asap, he would have called. At least I hope so! :-)

What is your opinion on the cholesterol level? Is that WAY high, or just moderately high?
