Hematuria: Microscopic blood in the urine with normal kidney function is generally a benign condition. You definitely need an ultrasound of your kidneys and urinary tract OR a CT pyelogram to start with to make sure there is no mass/cysts/or stone causing it!

No: Chlorthalidone does not have an effect on the liver and does not cause fatty liver. Fatty liver or steatohepatosis can be due to Alcohol or other causes (medications, obesity, diabetes, malnutrition, etc).
