Leukocytes are considered as a type of white blood cell. When urine has shown positive sign for leukocytes then there is certainly an infection. You can undergo this test in pathology or perform with the help of home dipstick test kit present in the market. Its normal range remains 0 - 10 leu/ul, if it is more than this range, the test result is positive. To underlying infection you can use antibacterial medication such as Trimpex, Polycillin, Floxin, Noroxin, Cipro orTrovan, however it’s better to consult a doctor before applying anything.
