flakes - Candida?
Hi all I have been managing my bladder mainly with diet and Ami at night but I continue to have flakes in my urine all the time. I had a cysto and uronamics (?) on this day I didnt have the flakes! But the cysto said I had denudation of the bladder and no cancer cells etc. I have seen a Professor of Urology twice and he is confused about the flakes but doesnt have an answer. He wnated me check for Maloplakia but thats a red herring I am sure and a very expensive CT scan to disprove it so I dont want to be distracted by this. I read something about Candida in the bladder and just wondered if this was what was going on for me. Anyone else got these symptoms many thanks Mazzie x

quite a few people post about seeing flake in their urine I think it is just part of IC for me. I have had the flafes tested and i don't remeber what it was but it was nothing of concern. You ask you dr. to test the flakes. I have had enough to plug up the strainer when straining my urine for kidney stones that is when I first noticed it but I have had it alot with stones.

I don't have as many "symptoms" as ICers, and I have never had the flakes. I know that some ICers have had them. Maybe its part of the GAG layer in our bladders.-Cassie

It's funny that you mentioned flakes. I am new to this disease so I check my pee all the time and I've seen these tiny tiny tiny little things in my urine that looks like flakes but was like ehhhhh whatever!!!!!!!!!
so I guess it's just part of the IC

I always though it was just the layers of the lining shedded off?

Serenity isn't freedom from the storm.....it's peace within the storm.....I had my sick bladder removed Jan 7th 2010.....Even though I had many complications.......I would do it again in a moment.....I have no regrets......Sunflowers in memory of my sister who passed March 14th 2010......they were her favorite....

I have flakes in my urine occasionally. I have always heard it can be part of the bladder lining be shedded. If it is persistent or gets worse it wouldn't hurt to tell you uro about it.TexasHoney

I had to give a sample at the ER yesterday it was full of flacks, turns out my UTI changed to a kidney infection. NOt fun, but I am feeling somewhat better, but it has been a tuff 3weeks. I have been on pill ab's and IV ab's.
I go back to my dr. on monday to have it checked again.
