Blood in the Urine Prevention
Many causes of blood in the urine are not necessarily preventable, such as urinary tract infection or cancer, enlargement of the prostate, blood diseases, and kidney diseases. Other causes, like strenuous exercise and the use of certain medications, can be preventable to some extent. Maintaining adequate hydration can be helpful in reducing the chance of developing kidney stones.
