• Some Medications: Cyclophosphamide, which is used to treat cancer, and penicillin, an antibiotic, can lead to hematuria. The use of blood thinners (anticoagulants) such as aspirin, heparin, and conditions that can cause bleeding in the bladder can also cause blood to appear in the urine.
Some diseases that cause blood to come out of the urine are preventable conditions. To prevent these diseases, the following can be done:
• To protect yourself from urinary tract infections, you should consume plenty of fluids, urinate immediately after sexual intercourse, and observe hygiene rules.
• Excessive consumption of salty foods, spinach and beets should be limited to prevent the formation of kidney stones.
• To reduce the risk of prostate cancer, it is necessary to make sure that enough liquid is consumed, and if it is used, smoking should be stopped.
Hematuria can occur due to very different causes, from infection to cancer, prostate enlargement to kidney stones. People suffering from complaints of blood coming out of the urine should contact the nearest medical institution in no time and take the necessary tests.
