Blood in the urine is a common problem. The medical term for red blood cells in the urine is HEMATURIA . Sometimes blood in the urine is a sign of a serious problem in the urinary tract, while other times it is not serious and requires no treatment. In some cases, abnormal urine color can be mistaken for blood. In women, blood from the vagina can be mistaken for blood in the urine. In men, prostate problems can lead to blood in the semen, which can also be mistaken for blood in the urine. In addition, certain laxatives and foods can cause the urine to change color. If you can not attribute the change in color to a medication or something in your diet, abnormal urine color should be evaluated in a medical setting. Blood in the urine can occur in all age groups and populations, and it may or may not occur with additional symptoms.
Only after a thorough evaluation by a health-care provider should blood in the urine be attributed to a non-serious cause.
Kidneys: You have two kidneys, located closer to your back than your front at about waist level. The kidneys filter the blood in your body and produce urine. Ureters: These narrow, hollow tubes carry urine from the kidneys to the bladder. Bladder: The bladder is a balloon-like organ that holds urine until it is convenient for you to empty your bladder (urinate). Urethra: This narrow, hollow tube carries urine from the bladder to the outside of your body. The flow of urine is controlled by internal and external sphincter muscles, which tighten or relax around the urethra, holding or releasing urine. In men, the genitals and prostate are considered part of the urinary system. The prostate surrounds the urethra in men. It is made up of glands that secrete a fluid that is part of semen. The prostate often becomes enlarged in older men.
For most cases of kidney stones, you will be told to drink plenty of water and other fluids and to take pain relievers. Most stones will pass through urinary system by themselves. In certain instances, more extensive measures may be required. One form of therapy, called extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy, uses sound waves to crush the stones. The smaller pieces can then pass through more easily, though some pain will remain. Another form of therapy uses cystoscopy to find the stone in the ureter and then to grab and remove it with a small scoop. And this is unpleasant.
Urinary tract infection:
Treatment seeks to get rid of the bacteria responsible for the infection. If you have no other significant illness, you will take a course of antibiotics for three-14 days, depending on the source of the infection. Benign prostate enlargement: Sometimes eliminating certain foods and medications that irritate the prostate can help shrink the prostate. Sometimes medication is necessary. Medications: If a drug is causing blood in your urine, also called hematuria, stop taking it. Some drugs only discolor the urine without actually causing hematuria. Your healthcare provider should determine if these can be continued. Do not stop a medication without talking it over with your healthcare provider.
Urinary tract blockage:
A blockage usually requires surgery or other procedure to correct or remove the block. Injury: These may heal over time, or you may need surgery or another procedure to repair the injury or remove the damaged tissue. You have to maintain your Great Health, and the best way is to always be a Scientist yourself and Observe, Observe and Observe. For this is the first job of a Scientist is to observe what is changing or taking place, and than Experiment for causes and solutions. And you already do this everyday dear friend. and so the sooner you attack the Blood in the Urine situation, The Healthier you will be. Be well, James Dazouloute
