Cleanse Harmful Bacterial Infections
Urinary tract infections, or UTIs, is an infection that affects any part of the urinary system including the kidneys, bladder (cystitis), ureters, and urethra. UTIs are commonly caused by bacteria entering the urinary tract through the urethra. Some common symptoms of a UTI include a frequent urge to urinate, burning sensation during urination, cloudy or strong-smelling urine, and pelvic pain.
UTIs affect millions of people annually world wide. While most UTIs are not considered serious, they can lead to complications if left untreated or if the infection spreads to other parts of the urinary system. One potential complication of UTIs is kidney infection, also known as pyelonephritis. When bacteria from the bladder move up to the kidneys, it can result in severe pain in the lower back or side, high fever, nausea, and vomiting.
Another complication is sepsis, a life-threatening condition that occurs when an infection spreads throughout the body via the bloodstream. UTIs can be a potential source for sepsis if proper treatment is delayed or ineffective. Symptoms may include rapid breathing and heart rate, confusion, dizziness, and extreme fatigue.
In rare cases, UTIs can cause kidney stones to form. When urine becomes concentrated with certain substances due to infection, crystals may develop and eventually merge into stones. These stones can obstruct urine flow and cause intense pain in the lower abdomen or back.
Females are at higher risk of getting a UTI because of urethras being closer to the rectum. This makes it easier for bacteria to enter the urinary tract. Pregnant women with untreated UTIs are at risk of developing preterm labor or low birth weight babies. The infection can ascend into the kidneys and potentially harm both mother and fetus.
There are many other factors that can contribute to urinary infections:
- A previous UTI.
- Sexual activity.
- Changes in the bacteria, or vaginal flora.
- Age (older adults and young children are more likely to get UTIs).
- Structural problems in the urinary tract, such as enlarged prostate.
- Poor hygiene.
- Yeast infections.
Overall, prompt diagnosis and appropriate treatment with antibiotics play a crucial role in effectively managing UTIs and preventing complications from arising. Without proper treatment one can experience recurring UTIs which can impact an individual’s quality of life by causing frequent discomfort and disrupting daily activities.
