Urine tests

Does anyone else have this problem? I suffer quite a bit with right side pain and each time it flares I get a urine sample tested. The results always the same blood and protein trace cloudy but no infection. I have now been told this is normal for me!

I've under gone tests on my kidneys and told I've a leaky right kidney but nothing has ever come from that!

Now I'm in the middle of another flare of this pain and have been given a weeks course of steroids. My gp and consultant are great but I'd like to be armed with more info or reasons for this.

Thanks

It is confusing isn't it? Everything you read says that you are not supposed to have blood or protein in your urine, it is not normal. I have had blood for years and now showing trace protein. Over the years (before diagnosis) I was told I must have passed stone, or I was treated for infections that were not there. Last week Rheumi said "well you are still showing high blood in urine" like he thought it was suppose to go away. I told him that after 10 years I didn't think it was leaving and I was more concerned with the protein. I guess "trace" is not enough to worry about. So, like you say - what should be reason for worry is "just normal for us"!

I guess that means that your first test was good so not to worry. Probably be included in your annual exam with GP.
