  • White blood cells are simply dead red blood cells. A sign that there is an infection that her body is trying to fight off. She most likely has a UTI, and will need an antibiotic. Is she complaining that it burns when she has to pee? Does she have a fever or the chills? Uremia..blood in her urine? These are all signs of a UTI

  • My daughter has UTI issues it can mean uti, they need to do a culture though, and yes it takes time for the bacteria to grow. It does not always burn when young kids have a UTI! My Also a fever means it is a kidney infection which is what a UTI can lead to! She does not need a fever or burning to have a UTI! I have a ton of experience with UTI's and children. My daughter gets UTI because she has Reflux. Not normal reflux but urinary reflux. Cannot spell actual diagnosis! Any questions shoot me a message!
    Good Luck!
