Had a few positive results last summer on UTIs. Then, when seeing my rheumatologist for routine bloodwork, I mentioned the UTIs to him. He ordered another one just to make sure I was all clear. At our final meeting, he said the results came back as negative.. that there were leukocytes in the urine, but the number was 'only 30,000' and that to call it an infection, that number had to be 100,000 or higher. Can I rest easy about this, or should I follow through with a urologist at this point? Cannot find what the numbers mean when I look online. Thanks for help.
