Medical fail? microscopic haematuria.

Discussion in 'Submariners' started by NavyRedDevil, Apr 17, 2015.

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Does anyone know if having non visible blood (microscopic haematuria) in urine makes you medically unfit to join the RN?

    I passed my interview for the SS but during my medical I was informed of the trace of blood in my urine and was told to consult my GP for further investigation.

    Long story short ive had a full battery of tests; Blood, urine, ultrasound, but there is nothing the doctor can find to be wrong with me but I still have the blood in urine 2 months later. So this excludes physical exercise and intercourse that can sometimes cause this.

    My doctor is writing to a kidney specialist for confirmation to send back with my Navy medical forms but I was wondering if anyone knew weather they would allow me in with this condition?

    sorry about the essay, any help appreciated.

    Again, only a qualified medical specialist can give definitive advice but in order to manage realistic expectations one of the medical tests includes a urine sample and one of the things they are looking for is blood. Putting together those two things it is unfortunately likely this will be a significant issue with regard medical suitability for service. @nemesis1066 may be able to give a more qualified comment on this issue.

    Best of luck.
  3. Nice one I'll keep ma fingers crossed.
