IN FEBRUARY 2017 Was peeing more than normal. Went to my physician. They did a urinalysis. No sign of a UTI. They did find a trace of blood and rbcs with 3-10hpf. They sent me to a urologist because of my age and smoking history.

The urologist did another urinalysis and rectal exam. Plus a PSA blood draw. CT SCAN OF my abdomen and pelvic areas. They said they found no reason for the blood. In that following year I was still worried. I wound up having two head CT scans , numerous blood draws and chest xrays and still nothing. So my physician put me on effexor ER for anxiety. Which I think made the problem worse. I just had my yearly check up with the urologist. Another PSA, rectal check and UA. Everything came back fine. Do you think they've done enough testing and all this is in my head?

    Hi John , I'm also 53 but I'm 158lbs , I think if you can bring your weight down to 180 ( lose 60lbs) your overall health will improve and your diabetes might go away , you also smoked which I didn't . Those irregularities in your urine could be related to being overwheight .

    1200 calories a day of quality food can improve your life drammatically.

    Look at the Dr Nowzadaran TV show , he always recomends a 1200 calories a day diet and his patient always have miracle recoveries.

    At our age we tend to eat for pleasure , cravings or ritual but our body really needs very little food.
