Customer Question

This morning I noticed some discoloration in my urine. It appears to be blood, also some small clots. I am on medications for diabetes, cholestrol, and high blood pressure. There is no pain when I urinate. I don't know if I should go to the hospital or my doctor. What should I do?

Goldie seeing blood like that can be scary. I suggest that you call your doctor's office so they can see you.


You need to have a urinalysis done to check the amount of blood in your urine.


It can be a sign of a kidney stone, infection , prostate trouble among other things.


If your urine is dark red and appears to be mostly blood then you should go to the ER. Your doctor should be able to get you in today for though and would be easier for you.
