Blood work results! experts needed!
I'm really kinda worried what my lab results mean. About 2 weeks after clomid treatment from a dBOl and t200 cycle I had to go in for blood and urine tests for a new job. I got the results in today, I passed and I have the job but it says there are red blood cells in my urine and I should discuss my results with my family doctor. So far the only thing i can find on this is that it can be caused by vigorous exercise. My workouts could definetely be described as vigorous, but am I in any kind of danger? Could this be related to my steroid use ? I need to know because I'm about to start some clen , and I'm planning my next cycle.

Blood in the urine can be from a number of things the only time I have suffered from that was when I was kicked in the kidneys.I would check this out with the Dr because you are asking an open ended question.

definitly could be anything, but most commonly is a kidney problem...here goes if you can understand this..if not i can explain it in english for you
Hematuria is the presence of red blood cells (RBCs) in the urine. In microscopic hematuria, the urine appears normal to the naked eye, but examination under a microscope shows a high number of RBCs. Gross hematuria can be seen with the naked eye--the urine is red or the color of cola.
Several conditions can cause hematuria. Most of the causes are not serious. For example, exercise may cause hematuria that goes away in 24 hours. Many people have hematuria without any other related problems. Often no specific cause can be found. But because hematuria may be the result of a tumor or other serious problem, a doctor should be consulted.
In order to find the cause of hematuria, or to rule out certain causes, the doctor may order a series of tests, including urinalysis, blood tests, intravenous pyelogram, and cystoscopic examination.
Urinalysis is the examination of urine for various cells and chemicals. In addition to finding RBCs, the doctor may find white blood cells that signal a urinary tract infection or casts (groups of cells molded together in the shape of the kidneys' tiny filtering tubes) that signal kidney disease. Excessive protein in the urine also signals poor kidney function.
Blood tests may reveal kidney disease if the blood contains high levels of wastes that the kidneys are supposed to remove.
An intravenous pyelogram (IVP) is an x ray of the urinary tract. An IVP may reveal a tumor, a kidney or bladder stone, an enlarged prostate, or other blockage to the normal flow of urine.
A cystoscope can be used to take pictures of the inside of the bladder. It has a tiny camera at the end of a thin tube, which is inserted through the urethra. A cystoscope may provide a better view of a tumor or bladder stone than can be seen in an IVP.
Treatment for hematuria depends on the cause. If no serious condition is causing the hematuria, no treatment is necessary.
