Hematuria and proteinuria reflect a kidney problem?

Maybe. "-uria" = in urine. Protein in the urine usually reflects a kidney problem. Blood (hematuria) may be a problem in the kidney, ureter (connection duct to), bladder, prostate gland (in men), and/or urethra. Both should be evaluated further to identify the problem which may include further blood, urine tests, scans, and cystoscopy (scoping the bladder and system).
Glomerular disease. Blood in the urine can come from the kidney blood vessels (glomeruli) or from any anatomic structure along the pathway from urine formation to its exit from the body. Protein in the urine comes from the nephron, either from the glomerulus spilling protein into the urine, or from protein secretion in the tubules. The presence of blood and protein in the urine indicates a glomerular source.
Blood and protein. Hematuria (h) and proteinuria (p) are symptoms, not diagnoses. H can occur with and without p. It is usually best to see a urologist for h and a nephrologist for p to determine what is causing each condition. Good luck.
Kidney problem. Hematuria and proteinuria may be present when one is menstruating.

How can I have IGA nephropathy with daily microhematuria and proteinuria but a GFR of >90%. Doesn't hematuria always equal kidney damage?

Not at all. Most patients with kidney disease have normal GFR. The estimated GFR on your lab slip is subscientific anyway. About 75% of IgA neohropathy patients have normal GFR and usually have little trouble. Read more...

Trace hematuria, and proteinuria on some ua. Blood work shows normal kidney function. Ct w/contrast, xray kub, and us all normal. Ideas?

I bet you're fine. I don't believe in even working up trace proteinuria. Even visible hematuria with otherwise normal labs and imaging isn't a cause for alarm; one person in maybe 100 has thin-gbm non-disease and except for slightly poorer hearing than the next person, these folks are otherwise normal.

Benign glomerular dz. Hematuria and proteinuria suggests a glomerular cause ( kidney filter) since the urologic studies are negative. Kidney biopsy would be diagnostic but makes no sense since risk of progressive renal failure is very low as long as the urine protein is less than 500 mg a day. Diagnosis would include IgA nephropathy, thin basement membrane disease among others. As long as normal function u r ok. Read more...

Kidney cyst. In a young person with your lab studies i would assume this is either a benign simple cyst or an abscess. See a urologist for a proper workup. Read more...
Simple cyst . Simple renal cysts are relatively common. If on MRI or contrast enhanced ct or even a good ultrasound, they meet the criteria for simple cyst, there's really no reason for concern. Solitary cysts of the kidney (of this nature) are not associated with the symptoms and findings you described. Read more...
