The long-term outlook (prognosis) for people with loin pain hematuria syndrome (LPHS) is poorly understood. However, it generally does not lead to kidney failure or a shortened lifespan. Unfortunately, the pain associated with LPHS is often severe and may interfere with quality of life. In many cases, pain can only be managed through high doses of pain relievers and/or hospitalization.
