  • Do positive leukocytes in urine test mean a UTI? 2 drs with 2 different answers.

    Long and short of my story is I went to 2 separate doctors, and one said leukocytes being high means a UTI for sure, and another doctor completely ignored the leukocytes and tested only Nitrites, claiming it wasn't a UTI. I'm currently taking antibiotics but curious if anyone has been in a similar situation or can offer any insight? I can't fathom how theres 2 separate medical opinions on this topic but was curious if anyone had any insight.

    I honestly don't know. It could be that one looks at an IC patient a little differently?

    How are you feeling?
