Customer Question

passing sand like substance in my urine. Not all the time, but often enough

Since how long? Any other symptom? Any test ? Any treatment taken?

Customer: replied 7 years ago.
This has been occurring since the last kidney stone attack about 8 months ago. The only other symptom I have is the aching like pain in the kidney areas, but it is only once in a while.
I am taking no treatment at this time.

Thank you for the input.

Sand like particles sounds like crystals . This can be due to factors which led to the formation of stones before. Common crystals which are passed with urine are oxalate & phosphate. You are right in thinking that they may be coated with blood. You need to get an urine test after consulting your doctor.

Hope this information will help you.
Wish your healthy life.
