The presence of brown or cola coloured urine with red blood cell casts
(RBC) and deformed RBCs confirms the glomerular origin of hematuria (2).
Kidney problems during pregnancy are more likely to be related to systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) renal disease than to preeclampsia if the patient exhibits clinical symptoms of active SLE, has an elevated anti--double stranded DNA antibody, or has detectable red blood cell casts
in the urine, she said.
By clicking the identification number of an examinee, supervisors can do a more detailed analysis, allowing them to identify sediment structure categories (e.g., casts) and specific structures within a category (e.g., red blood cell casts
) that are problematic to an individual.
In such cases, it is reasonable to perform a microscopic examination of the urinary sediment looking for signs of glomerular disease (especially red blood cell casts
and dysmorphic red blood cells).
