I am new to this board so first let me start off by saying HI.

Now, about the problem. I am experiencing what I think is blood in my urine. It is discolored to a reddish color, but not pure blood.

About my health.

about a year ago I set a goal to get in shape again, weighing in at 244. I went on a high protein diet, low fat and low carb. I work out with weights 5 days a week and do cardio 3-4 days a week. I have dropped down to 188 and leaned out quite a bit. I consider myself to be healthy with no ailments to speek of.


My diet is very clean to a body builder's standpoint. It consists of fish, chicken, an occasional steak and lots of dark green veggies.


I take 1 gm vit E, 1 gram vit C, a multi, Flaxseed Oil (Omega 3,6,9 fatty acids) chromium piccolinate (insulin sensitivity) B-complex and milk thistle. Also a protein shake pre and post workout for aminos and glutamine for muscle recovery. and no alcohol, except a few beers on the weekend


I researched a drug called Winstrol, an anobolic agent which is used as an anticatabolic while dieting. This is a 17 alky-alkylated oral which is harsh on the liver (no more so than acetimeniphen (sp) in pain relievers) and thus the milk thistle. I started a cycle of this drug for the final phase of my fat melt-down which was planned for 6 weeks. I stopped after 3 weeks in light of my problem. I was using 250 mg per week which is a relatively low doseage.

Expected side effects:

high blood pressure, an increase in red blood cells (favorable for carrying much needed nutrients to the muscle tissue), and the shut down of the nads (temporary). to name the harshest of them.

I mentioned this so you all have the whole story before you give me advice.

I do not think this is a liver problem and especially after such a short duration of useage.

I drink about 2 gallons of water a day.

I have no pain or other symptoms of ailments such as kidneys (lower back pain) liver (discolored skin and eyes, bloating) or pain in urination.

Someone said I could have passed a kidney stone which scrathed the lining of my urethra which is causing the bleeding or have one coming. I do have a history of high uric acid crystalization(gout) which makes me believe this somewhat. I also notice that in the toilet I sometimes pass small red things. I picked one out and it appears to be coagulated blood, tiny but not microscopic.

Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks in advance,
