Casts: The presence of red and/or white cell in the urine does not help in differentiating the source of kidney vs. Bladder. If red cell or white cell casts are present, those only come from the kidney.

Blood cells can come from both the kidneys and/or bladder. Hemorrhagic cystitis is a disease of the bladder which can lead to numerous red blood cells in the urine.
