Greetings.

A severe dehydration due to heat stroke can cause kidney injury called as ischemic injury (means lack of blood supply, which occurs due to fall in blood pressure in heat stroke). This may be responsible for the blood in urine. A dehydration can also predispose for the infection and that too can be a concomitant cause for blood in urine. A good hydration by fluids, water, electrolyte solution and sports drinks should be able to correct it. But an ultrasound of the kidneys, blood electrolytes, serum creatinine, blood urea (kidney function tests) and urine examination is essential. You need to go to ER or an urgent care clinic.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I feel so much better today, and upon further investigation believe that there is a chance that the responses I got saved me from a serious, even life threatening situation. I am very grateful to the experts who answered me.

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
