Thin GBM?: About 1% of humankind have hematuria through their lives with no cause ever being found. If you're through your workup, chances are that you're in this category and can stop worrying. We in pathology think many, maybe most, of your folks have an entity called thin gbm non-disease, which won't be a problem though some folks with it also have mild hearing deficits.
