  2. 2. What is Hematuria??
  3. 3. How do you get it??-You can get it from infection, inflammation, or injury to theurinary system.-Kidney stones-Blockage of the urinary tract-Cancer of the kidney, bladder, or prostate-Viral infections
  4. 4. What does it do to you?? It gives you blood in your urinary tract, making your pee look like a dark reddish color
  5. 5. What systems does it affect??It affects the function of the urinary system by having red blood cells in theurine tract which isnt suppose to be there.It affects the immune system by making it work harder to fight off thedisease.
  6. 6. How is it treated??*Antibiotics: Which is medicine*Diuretics: A medicine given to decrease excess fluid*Steroids: This medicine may be given to decrease inflammation* Percutaneous kidney biopsy: The percutaneous kidney biopsy iswhen a very small piece of your kidney is taken out and tested.
  7. 7. Well, treatments like prescription drugs affect the circulatorysystem by slowing your heart rate down, this happens becauseprescription drugs are bad for you
  8. 8. How this slows down interaction ofthis system with other systems First, the red blood cells shouldn’t be in the urine tract because they are not part of a liquid waste. Meaning red blood cells should be in the circulatory system not the urinary system
  9. 9. How the cause finds its way to thesystem through interactions withother systems. First, it find its way to the urinary system from the circulatory system by getting to the kidneys when the kidneys are going to filter blood. Then it gets through the kidneys because something in the urinary system is damaged. Then it goes with the waste to the bladder. This is why the urine turns red.
