Re: Urine Test

If i'm not mistaken I think LEU stands for leukocytes in urine. If so, then these may be indicative of infection or of inflammation from some other cause.

Re: Urine Test

Probably leukocytes and there are normally "trace amounts" in the urine. Between 0-10 is considered normal. It tests for white blood cells in the urine and can indicate an infection... most likely a Urinary Tract Infection.
