Everything You Need To Know About UTI : A urinary tract infection (UTI) is an infection that affects any part of the urinary tract, including the kidneys, ureters, bladder or urethra.
Bacteria from the bowel are the most common cause of UTIs, but fungi and viruses can also cause infection
The two strains of bacteria Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus saprophyticus account for about 80% of cases
Still there is a lot you need to know about UTI
Though that sounds horrid, it’s not uncommon. Sometimes, it can be caused by a lack of proper hygiene, but most of the time it occurs from sex, using a diaphragm, or just being a woman. The Mayo Clinic lists “female anatomy” as a risk factor for the illness. So, if you’re simply walking around town with a vagina, you very well might get a UTI.
The infection itself might be caused by the E. coli bacteria, which goes up the urethra. Sometimes, it hangs out in this urinary hallway without infecting anywhere else. More often, the bacteria gets into the bladder, causing frequent painful peeing, discharges, blood in your urine, and pelvic discomfort. It’s not a good time, but a bladder infection is rarely serious, especially if you get treatment right away.
Though UTIs can affect anyone, women are more prone to infection. This is because the urethra, the tube that carries urine out of the bladder, is shorter in women than men. This makes it easier for bacteria to enter and reach the bladder
There is no rocket science behind this, it’s very simple – more the water you drink, more you will urinate and more you urinate, more you flush out the bacteria.
A 2003 study looked at 141 girls and showed that low fluid intake and infrequent urination were both linked to recurrent UTIs
SUMMARY:Drinking plenty of liquids can decrease the risk of UTIs by making you pee more, which helps remove bacteria from the urinary tract.
Some evidence shows that increasing your intake of vitamin C could protect against urinary tract infections.
Now probably you might be thinking why vit. C ? What does it do ? So note it’s responsible for creating acidic environment where bacteria can not survive.
Fruits and vegetables are especially high in vitamin C and are a good way to increase your intake.
Trust me, it will help you. Well it’s a well-known Natural Remedy
You can drink 240ml daily or alternate day.
Out of 50 women’s, it was claimed that it was helpful to stop recurring UTIs in more than 40, so i think you should also try, if it won’t there is no loss, these may benefit you in several ways.
SUMMARY:Some studies show that cranberries could help reduce the risk of urinary tract infections by preventing bacteria from adhering to the urinary tract.
These are beneficial microorganisms that are consumed through food or supplements. They can promote a healthy balance of bacteria in your gut.
The use of probiotics has been linked to everything from improved digestive health to enhanced immune function
Urinary tract infections are a common problem and can be frustrating to deal with.
However, staying hydrated, practicing some healthy habits and supplementing your diet with some UTI-fighting ingredients are good ways to lower your risk of getting them.
