Long Term Blood & Pus in Urine, Complications
For the past 3 years at any Dr. visit I always provided an urine sample. I have been told there are white blood cells, blood, and pus. I seem to go on medications for the allotted time of the meds. I will be tested again a few months later and same results. Again this is going on over 3 years, should I be worried? What can be causing this? What damage can this cause?
White blood cells in the can be seen in the presence of a urinary tract infection. However, they can be seen with various other conditions. As always it best to see your physician for an evaluation and explanation.
