Q.

13 mth old continual blood in urine

My 13mth old baby girl continually gets blood in her urine which causes her to be incredibly irratible and she doesn't sleep! She has gone for a cystogram, seen a professor in eurology, had a renalgram and they can find nothing wrong and no reason as to why she should be continually getting blood in her urine. She is on and off antibiotics and an antiseptic liquid, but still she has once again got a trace of blood in her urine. I don't believe that this is the norm, could someone please help me!

Your little girl appears to have been fully investigated, but I am not happy with the presence of blood in her urine. Please take her for a second opinion.Phone your nearest major teaching hospital and ask for the childrens renal department.
