White Cell Count Urine

About

White blood cells are key to your body's immune or defence system. They fight infections and protect your body from foreign invaders such as harmful germs and bacteria.

What might a low result mean?

A decreased WBC can result from a vitamin deficiency such as folate or vitamin B12, as well as liver disease and diseases of the immune system.

What might a high result mean?

The presence of white blood cells in the urine indicates that an infection is present as it is your body's response to fighting harmful bacteria.
