Celiacs, Have You Tested Repeatedly For Trace Of Blood In Urine?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

When I have had urine tests, I have had a trace of blood in my urine. I think as far back as high school, and perhaps before. That would be more than 30 years.

The MD would always figure it was a trace and not getting worse. It might have to do with my period which was coming or going in a week or so. My anemia was thought perhaps a result of this small amount of consisten blood loss.

Has anyone else experienced this symptom? Did it go away when you went gluten free?

Over the past 5 , when I was testing every month or two, twice my urine tested negative for trace of blood. I am working up my curiousity now, because I have not had it tested since going gluten free.

The only thing I can for sure is you're not the only one. I have experienced the same thing and have had multiple tests to find the cause. They finally said "well, some people just have little amounts of blood in their urine and we don't know why." I guess the important thing is to rule out potential serious causes.

Yeah, I have heard that too.

Yes to blood and in my case also protein. Since I had extreme edema before diagnosis I figure it is from some kidney damage. I don't worry about it since it has been a finding for years.

Do you take asprin or advil? I was told by my doctor that occassional use can cause traces of blood in your urine.

Yes! For years...was even sent for ultrasounds of the kidneys etc. No cause found. My brother and father have it too. They haven't been tested for celiac though.

I don't think I have since my pregnancies began 24 years ago!

I did about 5 urine tests last year and all had traces of blood , my gastro doctor thinks I have kidney stones . I did also read a vitamin k deficiency can cause traces of blood in the urine and my GP doctor told me sometimes celiac's have a vitamin k deficiency .

Frequent urinary tract infections and cystitis are problems for women with Celiac.

I was tested for infections, but it was negative.
