2. Kidney Disease

Kidneys are responsible for a variety of essential functions in the body. Decreased blood flow to the kidneys can damage them, which can lead to blood in the urine. Kidney disease may be either chronic or acute.

With chronic kidney disease, patients experience diminished kidney function for an extended period of time. Acute kidney disease has a more sudden onset of symptoms. When the kidneys are inflamed due to kidney disease, blood can be released into the urine.2‘Chronic Kidney Disease - Symptoms and Causes.’ Mayo Clinic, 15 Aug. 2019, www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/chronic-kidney-disease/symptoms-causes/syc-20354521.
