Hi doctor,

In my routine urine test, blood in urine is 1+ and RBC 6-8. What does it mean? I have attached my routine urine test report for your reference. Please help.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I had gone through your report (attachment removed to protect patient identity).

  • Your report is suggestive of microscopic hematuria. Microscopic hematuria may be because of calculus in urinary tract.
  • Calculus in urinary tract causes pain on the side of its presence and hematuria.
  • Also do blood investigations like serum creatinine and urea to make sure your kidneys are normal.
  • My current advice is to drink plenty of water. Further evaluation or management depends upon the ultrasound report and the size of calculus.
