What could a high red blood cell count in my urine mean?


Answer by  worker5567 (30)

There are many causes to a high red blood cell count. The serious causes include heart, lung, and kidney disease, as well as a bone marrow disorder. High altitude and dehydration can also be a cause.

This could be caused by a couple of things. You could have bleeding from somewhere in your urinary track indicitive of a kidney stone or overly rough intercourse. Or it could be you have kidney damage from high blood pressure.

Urine should not contain any red blood cells. Minor damage and/or infections may be responsible for small amounts of blood, called microscopic hematuria, but larger amounts of blood may mean large kidney stones or something more ominous in you kidney, bladder or other portion of your urinary system.

Any sort of infection affecting those areas, the bladder, the urinary tract etc can cause inflamation of the lining of areas. This can show high red blood cell in urine.
