Hi doctor,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Kidney stones can show different presentations. It can also cause blood in urine after doing exercise. Stones need proper evaluation and treatment. Your father is diabetic and he can have other medical issues. So proper evaluation has to be done before intervention is done. Have a follow-up with more details and do an ultrasound to know his kidney condition now.

The Probable causes:

Your father is having hematuria due to stones.

Investigations to be done:

Your father needs to do Fbc (full blood count), creatinine, urine analysis, urine culture, ultrasound, and KUB (kidney, ureter, and bladder X-ray).

Differential diagnosis:

Your father has renal stones or urothelial or kidney tumor.

Probable diagnosis:

You can have urolithiasis.

Treatment plan:

A proper decision can be taken after doing investigations.

Preventive measures:

Proper hydration is required. If there is persistent hematuria, then admission and evaluation have to be done.

Regarding follow up:

Have a follow-up after four days with your investigations.
