Blood in urine, nephrotic syndrome, protein leakage. Interstitial inflammation in kidneys. Causes?

My father, 72 yr old, having little blood in the first morning urine, but no pain or burning sensation. He is also having nephrotic syndrome , more than 10 gm protein leakage per day. Glomerullies were not found during kidney biopsy . So no proper identification of the category of Nephrotic syndrome was made. Only interstitial inflamation in kidney were found. Immunofluroscence report shows IgA. What can be the cause?

welcome to HCM.
Once you rule out stones; infection or tumour by doing urine analysis and ultrasound scan, we need to think of the glomerulo- nephritis as the cause.
Kindly do the above tests and we can take it form there.
best regards
