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.
