Kidney Problems
DebiHardy posted:
My niece, her brother (my nephew) & their father (my sister's husband) all have kidneys problems. The 2 males have severe kidney stones & have blood in their urine all the time. My niece to my knowledge has not had any stones but has blood & also protein in her urine. I am sure that the blood in the males urine is from the stones but why the protein in my neice's urine. Do they check the males for protein loss also? Is the blood & the protein connected? Thank you for any help that you can offer.

Hi DebiHardy,

Welcome to the WebMD Communities! Since this is the Knee & Hip Replacement community, we would not be able to answer your questions. But, I encourage you to participate on our Kidney Disorders Community where you will find more appropriate support.

Thanks and good luck!
