My 5 year old has done a urine sample as she complains a lot

Customer Question

My 5 year old has done a urine sample as she complains a lot of pain in tummy and in back. Ongoing for a while but last time she just had leukocytes so nothing was done at doctors.
Now, she hasd leukocytes +2 and specific gravity 1.030, everything else seemed normal. Is this anything to be concerned with?
I wasn't sure as to whether it could be to do with bowels, but she says not.

Hello, She seems to be having urinary infection from the report. A urine culture and sensitivity test for pathogenic germs should be ordered and pending report, drug like trimethoprim may be given.
