Wrong approach: You need to find why you have red cells in your urine. Magic foods aren't the answer to this or to most other health issues. You'll get a workup looking for stones, tumors and perhaps other health problems. About 1% of folks have thin GBM non-disease or some other cause of harmless blood in the urine. Don't try to treat this. Best wishes.

Blood cells in urine: Red blood cells (rbcs) in urine are commonly seen with kidney stones. A few rbcs are commonly seen in women's urine due to contamination of a clean catch urine. Urine obtained from catherization may have rbcs due to tiny trauma from the catherization. If rbcs are found in urine one time with no symptoms of kidney stones, that person's urine should be retested to rule out more serious conditions.
