Hematuria: RBC in the urine could be either from the kidneys or the bladder(cystitis). Endothelial damage in the kidney can result in both hematuria and proteinuria. Protein content should be quanitifed to better understand its pathology,(Nephriti/Nephrotic). RBC's in the urine can accompany protein in the urine if the kidneys are injured. Protein will not be detected as a direct result of RBC in the urine
