In brief: Watch it

Glomerular hematuria is common in mild lupus.
If there is an impressive increase in the bleeding, or you have associated flank pain, get seen. This is a challenging disease and your understanding it and learning about it is a huge asset -- to you and your physician. Try to stay physically fit and if you can, join a support and information-sharing group.
