    Default anyone know about testing for UTIs/nitrates in urine??

    I got some urinalysis strips to test my wee at home due to many UTIs I have been getting. But I am a little confused. My 1st wee of the day shows high levels of nitrate (whixh means positive for bacteria/uti) but all other wees in the day come back negative??

    *usually* luekocytes and blood are present with a uti (well at least luekocytes which is basically white blood cells/pus) not sure about just nitrates....? Make sure you are reading the strip after a minute of letting it develop. Good luck, i have had awful trouble with utis over the years, they arent nice at all!..
