Blood in urine, done cystoscopy and IVP. Why do my urine tests show moderate blood?

Hi, I have had moderate microscopic blood in my urine for at least 12 years. I had extensive testing approximately 10 years ago ( cystoscopy , IVP) and nothing abnormal showed up. I had a Dr. tell me that the urine spec results showed smashed RBC in the testing. This has been such a mystery as to why my urine tests always seem to show mod. blood. I worry at times that something is brewing, I d appreciate your thoughts on this...Thanks Liz

Nephrologist 's  Response
Thanks for the query
Looks like you have hematuria (blood in urine) with normal imaging of the kidneys and bladder.
This could be due to diseases of the kidney like IgA Nephropathy.
I suggest that you see a nephrologist who will examine you and see if you need further tests like a kidney biosy.
Hope this helps
Good luck
