Untreated urinary tract infection

Patient

Q: Hi
I took the AZ UTI test and with first morning urine leukocytes and nitrite was positive. I have always had positive results even on urinalysis however no doctor has ever diagnosed me with UTI. I always have urinary frequency as I am a type 1 diabetic. Also urine cultures always indicate mixed positive growths or 3 or more organisms and it is asked to resubmit. No doctor has ever asked me to do another urinalysis after these positive results. I want to get answers but I feel no doctor actually cares, and I have seen many! My eosinophils are always elevated as well. Now I am beginning to lose a lot of weight I went from 144 to 120 in 6 months. What do I have? What can I do?
