- prolonged cough;
- change of skin.
Most often, with any inflammation of internal organs, leukocytes in the urine of the baby are increased, based on their number, the doctor decides on the further treatment of the child. In various diseases, in addition to the increase in leukocytes, a protein can be found in the material.
With a child’s disease, white blood cells can be detected in both the blood and urine. It is recommended to take it for any malaise, as this is the most reliable way to quickly learn about the presence of the inflammatory process in the body. The number of white blood cells in the urine in the normal state approaches zero and does not depend on the age of the patient.
As a rule, except for the period of illness, the baby is supposed to take urine tests with regular physical examinations. This is due to the fact that a small child is not able to tell about his pain, therefore, in order to detect infectious diseases in time, it is necessary to control the content of this enzyme.
