Hi and welcome.

Creatinine level is absolutely normal. But white blood cells are raised in urine test which signifies urinary tract infection. The treatment includes antibiotics. She needs to follow up with her doctor for antibiotic prescription. And she have to take loads of fluids so that her kidneys can flush out the bacteria. Raspberry juice would help.

Thank you. I am confused that her creatinine level is normal. She went for a medical examination as she has been offered employment as a singer on a cruise liner. The PEME said she has to have another urine test because her creatinine level is elevated and also to check for wbc. I am just so worried, because we received the email on Friday and can't do anything over the weekend, that this will prevent her getting the job.

Thanks for reply.

Her urine creatinine is normal and her blood creatinine is very mildly raised like upper limit is 90 and she has 92. This would get normal if she takes lots of fluids.
