To prevent hematuria related to strenuous exercise, switch to a less-intense exercise program. In general, you can help to prevent other forms of hematuria by following a lifestyle that fosters a healthy urinary tract:

  • Stay well hydrated. Drink about eight glasses of fluid daily (more during hot weather).

  • Avoid smoking cigarettes, which are linked to urinary tract cancers.
