Abdominal pain, blood in urine and stool. Tests show elevated WBC. Identify problem

My daughter is having kidney and abdominal pain with some blood in her urine and stool. She had a severe cold and cough and had lung pain from the severe cough. She went to the ER last week and they ran some tests. It showed some kidney inflamation, elevated white blood cell count, not a kidney infection or UTI. They didn't know what it was so they referred her to a gastrointerologist. Can you help identify what the problem might be.

Hello,
lower abdominal pain and blood in urine are symptoms suggestive of a UTI,especially if along with other symptoms like painful urination,frequent urination both at night and/or during the day.
However,due to the closeness in the outlet of the female urinary and reproductive tracts,she would need to be examine by a physician to be sure where the blood is coming from,before knowing the tests to do.

Abdominal pain/discomfort and blood in the stool can be suggestive of a GIT inflammation(gastroenteritis/dysentry) or gastrointestinal bleeding.
To know for sure what the problem is,she would need to be examined and evaluated further by a gastroenterologist to determine the cause of blood in her stools.So they might have to do a rectosygmoidoscopy to identify the source of blood in her stool,stool microscopy and culture to identify the causative agents of the possible dysentry.
When the specific causes have been identified,your local physician would give you the proper treatment.
