I am sorry you have these medical issues including pain.

To answer your question, it would be helpful to know more about the complete blood count numbers, such as hemoglobin and hematocrit, platelets. What is the MCV number? Also differential percentages or numbers helpful.

Also creatinine and BUN and recent urinalysis numbers.

The only value of concern in your blood test results is the MCV. This may be from a medication or a sign that your bone marrow is working overtime. All other values although flagged as abnormal are not far from the normal and would worry me only if they trend in the wrong direction.

Urine test is concerning for the blood, and the source(s) of that bleeding should be looked for. What is your doctor's plan to look for that?

He mentioned a kidney biopsy. I guess he thinks I may have a kidney disorder. IGA something?? I've had the blood in the urine for 10+ years and have seen Urologists before that couldn't find a reason. The most recent one i saw is the one who referred me to a Nephrologist because he couldn't determine a cause - none of the others ever did. I do know in the beginning (1999) when blood started being detected it was trace amounts and I guess it's escalated over the years to moderate. I thought I'd ask because I'm not crazy about having a kidney biopsy.

The nephrologist may be referring to IgA nephropathy. That is a fairly common cause of blood in the urine.
