Would a urine test be able to detect why traces of blood is being found in it?

Hello welcome to the health care magic

Your urine shows only trace amount of blood.

Kindly mention me your clinical complaint so that I can comment further.

Acute urinary tract infection or urethritis can be causative factor if urine shows pus cells as well.

Repeat urine routine microscopic examination.

If infection is the cause than antibiotic course needed

If spasmodic pain associated than x ray KUB needed

Hope your concern solved

Consult physician for examination if bleeding continues than you might need further work up in form of USG pelvis or x ray.

Take care

husband went to VA hospital. they found trace of blood in his urine. not automatically noticeable but detected through tests. now they want him to come back to urinologist (sp?) and one other test - I forgot. They didn t schedule it until 2 weeks later so I assume it s not serious. What could it be? he s 56 and will bee 57. Help.

He is having beetrrot juice on daily basis from last 40 days. what could be the reason for RBC in blood?
