Hello and hope you are doing well.

The urine analysis, shows increased bacteria and WBCs indicating an urinary tract infection. Have a culture and sensitivity test done to find out the correct antibiotic that the infecting organism is sensitive to and taking this medication for the required amount of days may help to clear urinary tract infection.

The PT, INR values are within the normal range. It is usually recommended to have an INR of 2.0 to 3.0 for basic "blood-thinning" needs. If the INR is higher - about 2.5 to 3.5, it means it is more thinner to prevent clotting. If lower it is thicker.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
