About Urinary Infections
Urine infections can be a serious health problem and are one of the most common reasons why people visit their doctors. They can affect both genders, but are more common in women which is likely to be due to their physical make-up. Quite worryingly, sufferers of UTI’s are likely to have recurrent attacks which can get more and more painful as time goes on and the risk of damage can increase with time.
The urinary system comprises of the bladder and kidneys, along with the associate “tubes” which lead from the kidneys to the bladder (ureters) and that which leads from the bladder to the outside world (urethra). The ureters carry filtered urine from the kidneys for storage in the bladder and the urethra is the tube which empties the urine.
Normally, the urine will be sterile and although it contains fluids and waste products, it is normally free from bacteria. However, an infection often occurs when bacteria clings to the entrance of the urethra and starts to multiply. If the body cannot quickly and effectively fight the infection, the bacteria will often multiply and travel to the bladder. If not treated, the bacteria could migrate to the kidneys, causing a potentially serious kidney infection.
To use the urine infection remedies which I recommend, you must first be sure that you do indeed have a UTI rather than a more serious kidney infection, which will require medical treatment to prevent damage to the kidneys. If you are at all unsure, have a look at the symptom checker.
If you do indeed have a UTI, then it is important to get started with your treatment right away. Even the mildest condition can progress to a more serious condition if left unchecked.
