How To Reduce Leukocytes?
Hello Ms.Cha Sansa, thank you for consulting us on HealthReplies.com. We will try to explain to you related to the laboratory results that you submit to us.
Leukocyte esterase / LE is one of the substances that are examined in routine urine laboratories. If in the urine sample leukocyte esterase (LE) particles are obtained, this indicates that in the urine there are leukocytes / white blood cells, especially neutrophils that function in protecting the body from bacterial infections. So if it is concluded, you are currently experiencing a urinary tract infection / UTI. Also macroscopically / visibly without the aid of a microscope the urine looks turbid whereas in normal results a good urine is clear. Urinary turbidity can be caused by high levels of leukocytes or white blood cells that come out together with urine.
Urinary tract infection is a condition in which the urinary system is experiencing an infection, either in the kidneys, ureters, urinary bladder or urethra. When the urinary tract becomes infected, the symptoms that usually appear are fever, nausea to vomiting, accompanied by chills, complaints of urination such as pain, incomplete, frequent urination, unable to hold urine, lower abdominal pain.
Our advice to you, of course, is to re-consult the doctor who referred you to do the urine examination, because of course the laboratory results must be synchronized with the clinical symptoms that arise. And for the time being you should take steps to prevent further urinary tract infections from becoming worse, such as:
