More info needed: Blood in the urine is not normal and needs to be explained. UTI is one of many possible causes, and if a urine culture shows no infection, we look for other causes. A CT negative for stones and normal cystoscopy do not eliminate the possibility that the problem may be originating in the kidney. Your urologist can help sort this out.

A 33-year-old member asked:

Why do I find blood in my infant's diaper when she has not made a bowel movement?

Is it blood?: First, is it blood? Newborns especially can pass dark urine that when dried in a diaper can look like blood. Sometimes genuine blood can come from bloody vaginal discharge (normal in a newborn), or from a crack or fissure near the anus. Not sure what's going on? Go see the pediatrician for an exam.

Not really: I would suspect if it's really low, systolic pressure less than 90 , that perhaps your being over medicated with something or are dehydrated.

Get moving!: Didn't get the whole question. You are at a great age to stop future problems. Being over weight and having a family history of diabetes definitely puts you at risk. Start getting into an exercise program and cut back on fried and fatty food. That should help get things back to normal.
Dr. Samuel Sadow
Bariatrics 48 years experience
Start following a Mediterranean Diet, cut out sweets and snacks, have your doctor to put you into a good weight loss program to help you to lose all your fat and keep it off. Do at least 300 minutes per week of physical activity including muscle strengthening. Drink 10 glasses of water per day and get 8 hours of sleep. Eat a good protein breakfast and eat some protein with each meal. Don't skip meals.

I am about 4 to 5 weeks pregnant i've been bleeding for a week already. I have no cramps nor blood clots . I went to the doctors yesturday and was told there was an egg sac but they couldn't see anything inside of it. The doctor told me I may be too early

Correct!: This early in pregnancy makes it difficult to discern whether it is a developing fetus in the egg sac or a "blighted ovum" of a possible miscarrriage. The "tincture of time" will tell the difference. Be patient as mother nature works on her own schedule.

Lifestyle change : Even for patients on medication for diabetes or metabolic syndrome, a healthy diet accompanied by weight loss, exercise, and quality sleep (or treated obstructive sleep apnea), is the key to getting back on track. For those already on medication, doctors may even be able to decrease doses once the effects of lifestyle change start happening. A healthy lifestyle involves a lifelong commitment.
