Not sure..: What the question is. Blood in urine would not be related to gallstones. He would need evaluation of the urinary tract, such as kidney stones or urinary infection. Gallstones can cause upper abdominal pain ; nausea after eating. This needs an evaluation ; exam with a doctor.

What causes on & off hematuria? Blood earlier, went to hospital & no hematuria, came back home & there was blood. No other symptoms. Tests were normal

Complex: Depends on age and gender and medical history and if blood is visible. Seeing a urologist for older folks is the place to start. Does the person smoke? The urologist may ask for a CT scan and if their workup is negative, may need to see a kidney doc. Sometimes this is a frustrating condition, but most often cause can be found. Talk to your MD and get to see a urologist.

Could untreated hypertension cause persistent microscopic hematuria?

Could untreated hypertension cause persistent microscopic hematuria?

Causes of hematuria: Hematuria can be caused by any bleeding in the urinary tract. It could be due to a tumor of the kidney (K), K stones in the ureters or by a bladder tumor, among other things. Culture your urine and if you have hematuria with no uti, see a urologist for evaluation. If you do have a uti, have your urine analyzed after the infection to make sure it resolves.
