Hello and welcome to HCM.

Thank you for your query.

I respect your concern for your only child and understand why you are still concerned about the possible repercussions.

First of all, I would like to know if the hematuria is still present or it has permanently subsided? Was your child treated? And what treatment was given? These are important questions, and you could write back with such information, for any further clarifications.

For now, let me assist you with the information I can provide from your query.

Coming to the causes of hematuria. The presence of blood in the urine is almost always due to some pathology. These can be: infections anywhere in the renal tract, stones in the renal tract, inflammatory conditions of the bladder, inflammation of the kidney, other disorders of the kidneys and a few more. At times, even medications can cause hematuria, and thus, finding the cause is important. You could check all the documentation provided to your daughter, in which the diagnosis has to be provided. Once you find this, you could write back to us and we could help explain the condition and possibly how it developed in your child.

Prevention or precaution depends only on the possible causes. And as there are many, the only advice I would have to give you as of now, is to always keep your child hydrated and teach her good hygiene.

Other than that, if the hematuria has not returned in quite sometime, it could mean that she has been treated and rid of the cause. This is good news, and you should rest reassured.

I hope I have succeeded in providing the information you were looking for. Please feel free to write back to me for any further clarifications. I would gladly help you.

Best wishes.

Blood in the urine can cause from the kidney or anywhere in the urinary tract. Although seeing blood in the urine can be very frightening, most of the time hematuria is not life threatening.
There are two main types of hematuria. [ 1 ] Gross hematuria [ 2 ] Microscopic hematuria.
Gross hematuria means that blood can be seen in the urine with the naked eye. Microscopic hematuria means that the urine is normal in color, but it has an increased number of red blood cells as seen with a microscope.
Infants with bladder or kidney infections, abnormal structures in the urinary tract, inherited diseases, mineral imbalance in the urine may have fever and feed poorly and lower belly pain, and in some cases, no cause may be found.
Follow up, Urinalysis to check for urinary tract infection or kidney disease.
Blood test to check for kidney disease.
Urine culture test
X-rays of the kidneys and ureters.
Home remedies,
Give CRAN BERRY JUICE on daily. It is known to have antibiotic properties and prevent bacteria.
Give BARLEY WATER at night.
