Urinary tract Infection

Overview​

A urinary tract infection (UTI) is an infection in any part of your urinary system — your kidneys, ureters, bladder and urethra. Most infections involve the lower urinary tract — the bladder and the urethra. Women generally effected more than men.

Symptoms :

A burning sensation when you pee A strong, persistent urge to urinate Cloudy, dark, bloody, or strange-smelling pee Pain and pressure in your back or lower abdomen

Causes :

Urinary tract infections typically occur when bacteria enter the urinary tract through the urethra and begin to multiply in the bladder.There are two most common types of UTI.First one is Cystitis, Which is caused by Escherichia coli (E. coli) a type of bacteria commonly found in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract.Sexual intercourse may lead to cystitis, but you don’t have to be sexually active to develop it. All women are at risk of cystitis because of their anatomy — specifically, the short distance from the urethra to the anus and the urethral opening to the bladder.

Diagnosis :

If you suspect that you have UTI then consult with your Doctor. You may need to perform the Ultrasound, CT scan and MRI scan for the closer look.

Treatment :

Antibiotics usually are the first line treatment for urinary tract infections. Which drugs are prescribed and for how long depend on your health condition and the type of bacteria found in your urine.
