Haematuria in chronic kidney disease

Kidney cartoon 4


Haematuria in chronic kidney disease:

  • The most common cause of haematuria are non-glomerular conditions such as menstrual contamination or urological conditions (urinary tract infection, kidney calculi, prostatic disease or urinary tumours)
  • Visible (or macroscopic) haematuria must always be investigated
  • Haematuria due to kidney diseases called glomerular haematuria
  • Persistent haematuria, or haematuria found in conjunction with other indicators of kidney damage necessitates investigation
  • Under the age of 40, isolated haematuria (haematuria without albuminuria, reduced GFR, or urinary tract malignancy) is usually due to a mild underlying glomerulonephritis with a low propensity for progression

    Persistent haematuria should be followed up with repeat testing for further investigation.
