1 year 5 month child has microhematuria constantly for 4 months in a row. It started with 2-4 red cells per hpf, then 4-6, last week it became 10, today it is 15. The urine density had changed from time to time - 1002 (twice), 1003, 1005, 1010, 1014. Yet we just got a recommendation from doctor to wait and see what will happen. Is it ok with such analysis or we should push for diagnosis?

Thanks in advance,
