My daughter is 7. Has history from 3 months old of uti/kidney

Customer Question

My daughter is 7. Has history from 3 months old of uti/kidney infections. Has kidney reflux and scaring. Is anemic. Had a procedure 2 years ago to correct reflux. Everything's been fine (no infec) up untill a few months ago she's had 2 utis since.
A few days ago I noticed she was very pale and dark under the eyes. And also has a very strong fish smell from down below. No temp, but clammy. otherwise well (at school) I took a urine sample and checked it with urinalysis sticks given to me by her consultant.
Results leu- trace
Protein +++
Nitrates +++

I'm a little confused as she's never had the fish smell before and a lack of Leu and temp.
A prof opinion would be grateful untill I can get her to see a doc on mon.
Thank you
