Customer Question
I had a brownish...

I had a brownish bladder output yesterday. what worries me most though is that for three days I have found blood when I wipe,then today there was quite a bit on my pad as well as when I wiped.

Doctor's Assistant: In general, how has your health been lately?

Sluggish and tired. Not cramping or burning like a bladder infection. I should mention I tested for 41% kidney function two weeks ago. That's why I worry.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Controlled diabetes, high blood presure and cholesterol.

Despite the absence of burning urination and cramping, UTI is one for the foremost cause for these symptoms of brownish bladder output and blood on wiping. So a urine exam and a culture is essential.

You also need an ultrasound and magnetic resonance urogram for the evaluation and management with your history of diabetes, hypertension, high lipids and lowered kidney functions.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

The various causes for this bleeding in urine (called as hematuria) and the pain can be;

1) Kidney and bladder stones

2) Urinary Tract Obstruction

3) Urinary Tract Trauma

4) Excessive exercise

5) Urinary tract Infection

6) Sickle Cell Disease

7) Kidney and bladder tumor

Read the resource;

http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/blood-in-urine/DS01013

Urine culture and an ultrasound are the first investigative protocol. Intravenous pyelography, CT scan, cystoscopy, etc may be followed depending on the initial investigative results. The investigation of hematuria begins with a search for bacteruria (bacteria in urine) or pyuria (pus in urine). If either is present, a urine culture should be ordered to confirm urinary tract infection (UTI).

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.
