In brief: ? urine Ca/cr ratio

Sometimes this is a sampling issue, and a squat and pee sample is often a vaginal wash out with all sorts of things in it.
If it is a good clean catch specimine i would wonder where the blood is coming from.Small amounts can accompany excess calcium loss through the kidney tubules.A spot check of the urine ca/cr can pick this up, usually some protein in the pee along with it.Talk with your doc.
