UTI symptoms still persisting but levels are normal now

Hello everyone,

My question is regarding UTI's. I was having frequent urination for a while and my doctor said there was few bacteria and white blood cells in my urine and put me on cipro for 3 days. About 2 weeks later I was still having the problems and my kidney doctor put me on bactrim for 3 days saying I probably still had the infection. Towards the end of my bactrim treatment I was due for my regular blood work and urine culture (not relating to the infection).

Today I went to my doctors to discuss the results and told her I was still experiencing UTI symptoms just not as bad and she told me that I didn't have an infection anymore that I just had normal levels of bacteria on the culture that it said: Multiple organisms present, each less than 10,000 CFU/ml. These organisms, commonly found on external and internal genitalia, are considered to be colonizers. No further testing performed.

I still have the UTI symptoms just not as bad so I am worried. She said there is no way I still have an infection though... and finished the antibiotics 2 days ago.

Sorry if the grammar and stuff is off in this post I am just really worried that I will feel this way the rest of my life... I have kidney problems but very slight and my protein levels have been normal lately so I don't think it's them causing the problem but I am worried that if somehow I do have an infection still it might go into my kidneys and cause more problems.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

The test sample taken at the time good have been fairly clear and not picked anything up , this can occur in labs,
as UTI can almost clear and come back it lives in the urinary tracts. bladder etc..

Try kelkin natural cranberry juice , and/or cranberry tablets from iherb

read the customer reviews for the product

2 small glasses of juice should suffice , for a while then say 1 glass and one of the cranberry tablets, daily
then go back for regular checks to ensure all is clear let your medic know you are taking cranberry juice ,
if you are diabetic it maybe best to take the pills only (less sugar)
