Kidney disease such as chronic renal failure. 
Diabetic Nephropathy which can result from diabetes in which the kidney cells are damaged. 
Macroglobulinemia , a disease of the plasma with serious effects such as blood passing into urine, weight loss, blurring of the vision and disease of the lymph nodes. 
Multi Myeloma Tumours of the bone marrow.
Renal Vein Thrombosis caused by blood clotting in the vein carrying blood away from the kidney. 
Bladder Tumour or Bladder Cancer.
