Not all urinary tract infections (UTIs) can be prevented, but there are some steps you can take to reduce your risk of developing an infection.
Cranberry juice and capsules
Drinking cranberry juice may help prevent UTIs. If you have had recurring UTIs, higher-strength cranberry capsules are recommended. These are available from most pharmacists and supermarkets.
Don't drink cranberry juice or take cranberry capsules if you are taking warfarin (a medicine used to prevent blood clots).
Treat constipation promptly
Constipation can increase your chances of developing a UTI. Recommended treatments for constipation include:
increasing the amount of fibre in your diet (20g to 30g of fibre a day)
using a mild laxative on a short-term basis
drinking plenty of fluids
See your GP if your symptoms don't improve or if your child is constipated.
Diaphragms and condoms
If you're a woman, using a diaphragm for contraception can increase the risk of getting a UTI. This is because the diaphragm may press on your bladder and prevent it emptying completely when you urinate.
If you use a diaphragm and have recurring UTIs, you might want to consider changing to another method of contraception. There are 15 different methods of contraception to choose from.
If you get recurring UTIs and you use condoms, try using condoms that don't have a spermicidal lubricant on them – it will say whether it does on the packet.
Spermicidal lubricant can cause irritation and make it more likely that you'll get a UTI. There are lots of condoms that have non-spermicidal lubricant, so use these instead.
Other useful advice
The following advice may be useful in helping you keep your bladder and urethra free from bacteria:
drink plenty of water to avoid dehydration and help clear bacteria from the urinary tract
go to the toilet as soon as you feel the need to urinate, rather than holding it in
wipe from front to back after going to the toilet
practise good hygiene by washing your genitals every day, and before having sex.
empty your bladder after having sex
Whenever I urinate, after that also I use to have 2-3 drops of urine releasing, It is just out of my control, what should I do to cure this problem?

My son is 5 years old. He had a urine infection at the age of 1.5 years. This ITI continued off and on till one year. Later we discovered a whit patch (filled with pus) at the top of his glans. We cured it using some ointment advised by a general practitioner. Since that UTI has not returned till date. During the treatment one of the doctors said my son's foreskin is tight. He advised circumcision. He went on to say that tight foreskin was the reason of reappearing UTI. He also said that the urinary bladder is not able to empty the urine at one go. This can damage the kidneys. But I was reluctant to send my 1.5 yr old child under scissors. Then suddenly it got cured by a normal family physician. Now I have only one issue. My child bed wets almost every night. Is this bcos of tight foreskin? do you recommend circumcision at this age? is there any exercise (like pulling the foreskin back n forth) that can help loosen the skin? any ointment that can help. Let me tell you that other than bet wetting my child has no other health issues. He is absolutely healthy. Kindly advise.

Kidney is the most vital organ in the body as it eliminates the waste material from our blood. When kidneys fails to carry out its work effectively the waste materials gets accumulated in the blood and end up with many serious disease condition that affects the other vital structures in our body. The function of the kidney is carried out artificially by an external device called dialyser to purify the blood and remove the waste products from it. This procedure is called as dialysis. There are two types of dialysis they are haemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis. In Haemodialysis, the waste products are removed from the blood and there by the fluid and electrolyte balance is maintained.
Things a person should follow if they are undergoing haemodialysis
- Love your heart: Patients undergoing dialysis are at more risk of getting cardiac problems. So it is best advised to follow few of the following measures to take care of their heart
- Diet: Dialysis not only removes the waste matters from your blood but sometimes also the essential electrolytes and nutrients. Protein, potassium sodium and phosphorus are the major things that are to be noted.
- Encourage the patient to take high quality protein rich foods like meat, fish, milk, egg and chicken which is essential to improve your muscle strength and immunity.
- Have a check of your sodium level and take sodium rich foods accordingly, as excess sodium may increase the fluid intake.
- Limit your fluid intake: Use ice cubes instead of water or use small cups of water. Make sure you measure every sip of water you take.
