Hello, Four years ago my wife had a transplanted kidney she was fine and everything is normal, just today she had a laboratory test of urine R/E but unfortunately the leukocyte was 15 and Ephithleal cells was 12. What is leukocyte and Ephithleal cells and what should we do for her? Is it dangerous for her?

Thanks for the query..
Most commonly Leukocytes and Epithelial cells in urine are due to urinary tract infection or renal infection..
As she is a kidney transplant candidate it should be taken into proper consideration and you should consult her doctor at the earliest..
A urine culture can be done for further diagnosis..
