Hematuria is the presence of red blood cells in the urine. It can often detected in patients with various kidney diseases. The text will make an explanation of causes of hematuria in kidney disease, and we hope this will be helpful for you.
Classification of hematuria
They are two basic types of hematuria:
● Microscopic hematuria: There are small amounts of blood presenting in the
urine, which can be seen only under a microscope.
● Gross (or macroscopic) hematuria: It is visible to the naked eye. The urine
may be pink or red. It may even contain small blood clots.
It should be noticed that hematuria in any amount is potentially serious. The
amount of blood present doesn't necessarily indicate the relative seriousness of
the underlying problem.
Causes of hematuria (blood in urine) in kidney disease
For healthy people, there are usually no red blood cells or little red blood
cells in the urine. Hematuria may be detected if there are red blood cells in
urine, or red blood cells are over 3/HPF in microscopic test. Renal hematuria is
derived from the kidneys.
When the kidneys are damaged, their filtration ability is damaged and the
permeability of glomerular basement membrane increases, so macro-molecules like
red blood cells are leaked out into the urine.
How to treat hematuria in kidney disease?
According to the above analysis, we have make it clear that hematuria in
kidney disease is caused mainly by the damages to glomerular filtration
membrane, so if we want to treat hematuria, we must repair the impaired
glomerulus and recover renal function. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is
just this kind of therapy.
Under the treatment of Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherpay, the further renal
damages can be blocked, the impaired kidney intrinsic cells and tissues are
repaired and the renal structure gets restored gradually. If the kidney function
recovers, hematuria will disappear spontaneously.
