positive hemoglobin screen

my wife had this positive hemoglobin screen on a urine test. we were getting test done for life insurance and we are approved. does anyone know what causes this or what it means. i know her period was to start around then, she has had some iron and folic acid defiencies in the past too. thanks for any info.

p.s. she is not having any pain or noticeable blood in her urine either. she feels fine all together too.

Re: positive hemoglobin screen

If she was having her period then it could be from that. If she was not bleeding at the time, she needs to have a doc look into why she was positive for blood in her urine screen - just to be on the safe side.
