How To Cure Urinary Tract Infections?
Excuse me, Doctor, I want to ask if I urinate, the urine is dark yellow, taking a drop of blood for a long time is the cause and overcome it, what does it look like, doc? But if my urine is white it doesn’t come out with a drop of blood! Thank you doc.
The presence of blood in the urine is called hematuria. Visible hematuria (urine appears red) is called cross hematuria, whereas the presence of blood in the urine detected from investigations is called microscopic hematuria.
Causes of hematuria include:
Urinary tract infections (urethra, bladder, ureter, or kidney)
Urinary tract stones
Prostate infections (male)
Inflammation of the kidneys
Trauma to the urinary tract
Sexually transmitted diseases (in men, urinary and reproductive tracts alike)
Blood clotting disorders
Hematological disorders such as sickle cell disease
Cancer in the urinary tract
The diagnosis can be obtained from the history results (history of previous hematuria, history of sexual relations, other complaints that accompany hematuria, etc.), physical examination, and investigations ranging from simple starting from urine analysis to advanced imaging such as CT-scan or biopsy if suspected of being suspected mass in the urinary tract. Urine analysis is needed to ensure the redness / concentration of urine is caused by the presence of red blood in the urine.
Treatment certainly needs to be adjusted to the causes found from the examination. If a urinary tract infection is proven from the examination, patients are usually given certain types of antibiotics to be consumed until they run out for several days. If the symptoms have not subsided, the patient must take control again to evaluate the urine.
Thus the explanation from me, hopefully useful.
