Welcome to icliniq.com.
Your partner has urinary tract infection. She needs to do a urine culture and sensitivity. Meanwhile, get examined by a gynecologist to know the local source of infection. If she is symptomatic, with fever or burning micturition, then she needs to take a course of antibiotics.
Thank you doctor,
I am worried about her high RBC count. Please suggest.
Welcome back to icliniq.com.
RBC count up to 5.4 million mcL is normal for women. The present value is just above the normal range. A hemoglobin level is more important than an RBC count. If the hemoglobin is more than 16.5 g/dL, your partner will require further evaluation. Present values are not of much concern. You can do serum erythropoietin level, hemoglobin HPLC electrophoresis test, and JAK2 V617F mutation testing.
