From last two days this is happening with me. I just cannot control my urine, and it is so frequent that I need to urinate literally after 5-5 mins. Also during urinating I am experiencing a severe lower abdominal pain, near where our urethra is located. What must be the issue? I am really concerned.

You have not mentioned about having or not fever with this problem. If you are having fever with chills this may be due to acute infection in bladder called cystitis. In absence of fever or slight fever it can also be due to a small stone or calculus in the bladder near the neck of bladder irritating the sensitive area and causing frequency of micturition. Get a microscopic urine examination and for presence or absence of crystals. A ultra sonogram of abdomen for jidney ureter and bladder will be helpful in visualizing the calculus if of enough size to produce echo.

Bladder Infections - Decoding one of the Most Common Gynae Problem in Women

Bladder Infections - Decoding one of the Most Common Gynae Problem in Women

A bladder infection is a bacterial infection within the bladder. Some people call a bladder infection a urinary tract infection (UTI). This refers to a bacterial infection anywhere in the urinary tract, such as the bladder, kidneys, ureters, or the urethra. While most cases of bladder infection occur suddenly (acute), others may recur over the long term (chronic). Early treatment is key to preventing the spread of the infection.

What causes Bladder Infection?
Bacteria that enter through the urethra and travel into the bladder cause bladder infections. Normally, the body removes the bacteria by flushing them out during urination. Men have added protection with the prostate gland, which secretes protective hormones as a safeguard against bacteria. Still, sometimes bacteria can attach to the walls of the bladder and multiply quickly. This overwhelms the body’s ability to destroy them, resulting in a bladder infection.

Men have added protection with the prostate gland, which secretes protective hormones as a safeguard against bacteria. Still, sometimes bacteria can attach to the walls of the bladder and multiply quickly.

Other factors can increase the risk of bladder infections for both men and women. These include:

  • Advanced age
  • Insufficient fluid intake
  • Surgical procedure within the urinary tract
  • A urinary catheter
  • Urinary obstruction, which is a blockage in the bladder or urethra
  • Urinary tract abnormality, which is caused by birth defects or injuries
  • Urinary retention, which means difficulty emptying the bladder
  • Narrowed urethra
  • Bowel incontinence
  • Pregnancy
  • Diabetes

Symptoms for Bladder Infections

  • Cloudy or bloody urine
  • Urinating more often than usual
  • Foul-smelling urine
  • A frequent sensation of having to urinate, which is called urgency
  • Cramping or pressure in the lower abdomen or lower back

Bladder infections can also cause back pain. This pain is associated with pain in the kidneys. Unlike muscular back pain, you might experience pain on both sides of your back or the middle of your back. Such symptoms mean the bladder infection has likely spread to the kidneys. A kidney infection can also cause a low fever. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a gynaecologist.

Tips For Kidney Health

7 secrets to kidney health

You can do a number of things to keep your kidneys functioning properly and keep them as healthy as possible at every stage of life.

1. Hydrate, but don’t overdo it. 

“contrary to popular belief, no studies have proven over-hydration as an effective practice in enhancing kidney function,” so, while it’s always a good idea to drink enough water, drinking more than the typical four to six glasses a day probably won’t help your kidneys do their job any better.

2eat healthy foods.

 Your kidneys can tolerate a wide range of dietary habits, but most kidney problems arise out of other medical conditions like high blood pressure and diabetes. Because of this, he suggests you follow healthy, moderate eating habits to control weight and blood pressure. 

Preventing diabetes and high blood pressure will help keep kidneys in good condition.

3. Exercise regularly. 

If you’re healthy, getting your exercise is a good idea because, like healthy eating habits, regular physical activity can stave off weight gain and high blood pressure. But do be mindful of how much exercise you do, especially if you’re not conditioned.“overexerting yourself when you’re not fit and healthy can put a strain on your kidneys, especially if you exercise so much that you cause excessive breakdown of muscle tissue.

4. Use caution with supplements and herbal remedies.

 Excessive amounts of certain vitamin supplements and some herbal extracts may be harmful to your kidneys. Talk to your doctor about any vitamins and herbs you plan to take.

5. Quit smoking

Smoking can damage blood vessels, which decreases the flow of blood in the kidneys. When the kidneys don’t have adequate blood flow, they can’t function at optimal levels. Smoking also increases the risk of high blood pressure as well as the risk of kidney cancer.

6. Don’t overdo it when taking over-the-counter medications. 

“common non-prescription pills like ibuprofen and naproxen (nsaid’s) can cause kidney damage if taken too regularly over a prolonged period,” if you have healthy kidneys and use these medicines for occasional pain, they probably don’t pose a risk. That if you take them for chronic pain or arthritis, you should talk to your doctor about monitoring your kidney function or finding alternative ways to control your pain.

7. If you’re at risk, get regular kidney function screening. “if you have either diabetes or high blood pressure, your physician should screen for kidney dysfunction as part of routine care for those conditions.

Hello sir my father is paralyzed and prostate problem. He is on catheter. Now he is not able to pass urine. What can I do this time. I can change the catheter or doing something else. Reply me fast. Thanks.

MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine
General Physician, Delhi
Dear , first we have to identify why is he not able to pass urine. It could be due the paralysis and/or due to the prostate problem. If it is due to an enlarged prostate you could get a prostatectomy done. However if it is due to stroke then you have to change the ctaheter. Which side is he paralysed on? did he have a spinal injury or astroke if it is a stroke was it a blood clot or a bleed? can you please upload the ctscan and or mri and his ultrasound reports?
