What causes white and red blood cells and bacteria in urine? This is what my Dr. said he found in my urine, but after a culture he sent me a report that I did not need any antibiotics. I wish they would call you and talk to you rather than send you a post card. I have a couple follow up questions but I will never get him on the phone. I went to him because of persistent pain just under the ribs in the back on my right side. Any ideas or suggestions about the urinalysis? Thanks.

I know this is an old post, I am going through old posts to try and answer them.

The following is a link on UTI's.

There are other reasons for white and/or red blood cells in the urine, they can range from UTI, kidney infection, kidney disease, etc..
Your doctor should be following up with a phone call and further test.

white and red blood cells in urine
Dear bokey1985

My daughter has the same problem. We've been through this for 15 months with 4 urologists and 2 nephrologists. They just refuse to do anything. In fact the current urologist said she would always have blood in her urine. I just don't buy that.
Her pain is her left flank wrapping around. Have you had MRIs and CT scans? We at least know that she has a growing kidney cyst in her left kidney that is a Bosniak II.

RE:Blood in urine, UTI's, pain in bladder, frequent urinations
I believe if s great deal of you look into "cystitus" you will find a great deal of the same symptoms. This is severe, but at least having an idea what you "could be working with" I hope can be helpful
