Why white blood cells in urine?Created by:
White blood cells are a part of the immunity system which may be found wherever an infection occurs because of the aggregation and causes inflammation which is a the reaction against infection. One or few white blood cells in urine is considered as a normal finding but having more in an urine sample is not normal and it indicates some of the conditions along the urinary tract. Bladder or kidney infection leads increased WBC in urine and women are more prone to have urinary tract infections than men. Urinary stones and a blockage to the tract may increase WBC in urine and pregnancy is another reason. Holding urine for some time can lead urine stagnation in the bladder leading infection and thereby increased WBC in urine.
