Hello Emi,


Leukocytes (white blood cells) function against germs that cause infection. The presence of leukocytes in the urine can be caused by infection of the urinary tract, inflammation, or tumors. But if only one positive and no other symptoms and no other results in the laboratory are disturbed, then this does not indicate any disturbance. The presence of leukocytes in women's urine often occurs due to contamination by secretions / fluids from the vagina, usually due to placing the sample cup / glass attached to the vagina.


If you experience symptoms such as pain when urinating, red urine, fever, nausea, vomiting, pain in the lower abdomen or waist, accompanied by high urinary leukocytes and bacteria found in the urine, then you may have a urinary tract infection (UTI). UTIs are treated with antibiotics that must be taken for a certain period of time.


To find out the diagnosis of a disease, it is necessary to combine questions and answers (history), physical examination and supporting examinations. If you experience the complaints above, you can see a doctor so that they can be treated.


Hopefully this is useful,
