UTI - 6 Preventive Measures!

UTI - 6 Preventive Measures!

A urinary tract infection can be painful and annoying. Most urinary tract infections affect the bladder and urethra, but it can also affect the kidneys and ureter. Women have a higher risk of suffering from this infection as compared to men. This is because women have a shorter urethra than men and hence the bacteria needs to travel a shorter distance to reach the bladder. Urinary tract infections can usually be treated easily with a course of antibiotics as long as they are detected in time. If not detected in time, it can affect the kidneys which make it a more serious problem. Hence, it becomes important to be able to recognise the signs of this infection.

Some of the symptoms to watch out for are:

  1. A persistent urge to urinate but low volume of urine produced
  2. A burning sensation while urinating
  3. Cloudy urine
  4. Blood in the urine which makes the urine appear red, pink or blackish
  5. Strong smell of the urine
  6. Pelvic pain

A urinary tract infection that affects the urethra is also known as urethritis. A burning sensation when urinating and discharge along with urine are the most prominent symptoms of this type of infection. When this infection affects the bladder it comes to be known as cystitis. Cystitis patients typically suffer from frequent and painful urination along with discomfort in the lower abdomen and pressure in the pelvic area. They may also notice blood in the urine.

Acute pyelonephritis refers to a urinary infection that affects the kidneys. In such cases, along with the typical symptoms, the patient may also experience high fever, nausea, shivering and pain in the upper back and sides of the abdomen.

This infection can affect a person at any age. Most women suffer from at least one bout of urinary tract infections in their lifetime. Some of the factors that increase the risk of suffering from this infection are:
Certain types of birth control such as diaphragms and spermicidal agents

  1. Menopause
  2. New sexual partners
  3. Urinary tract abnormalities
  4. Kidney stones or other blockages in the urinary tract
  5. Weakened immune system
  6. Use of catheters
  7. Recent urinary procedures that involve the use of medical instruments

Urinary tract infection can be easily prevented by living a healthy lifestyle. Drink plenty of fluids to flush bacteria and other toxins from your body. Bacteria multiplies in the bladder if urine stays for too long. Hence, urinate frequently and do not try to control your bladder. Avoid synthetic underwear and wear cotton underwear with loose fitting clothes that keep the area around the urethra dry.

How to prevent recurrent urinary tract infections
A urinary tract infection or UTI can be quite painful and uncomfortable. This infection can be described as an infection that affects the ureter, urethra, bladder or kidneys. Women have a shorter urethra than men which makes this more vulnerable to this kind of infection. It is said that most women suffer from at least one bout of this infection in a lifetime. Urinary tract infections are caused by bacteria and may often recur after treatment. However, in most cases, this can easily be prevented. Here are a few tips to help prevent recurrent urinary tract infections.

  1. Drink plenty of fluids: Ideally, we should drink 8-10 glasses of water a day at regular intervals. This keeps the body hydrated and flushes toxins and bacteria from the body. Water also prevents the formation of kidney stones that could increase your risk of suffering from a urinary tract infection.
  2. Urinate frequently: If you drink the required amount of water, you will typically need to urinate frequently. Do not try to control your bladder. Holding your urine in your bladder allows bacteria to multiply inside the bladder. This is an easy way for a UTI to begin.
  3. Follow healthy bathroom habits: Cleanliness is the first step to preventing any infection. When using public restrooms, flush the toilet before and after urinating. In the case of women, it becomes important to ensure that the seat of the toilet is clean as well. After urinating wipe the residual urine with toilet paper in a motion that goes from front to back. Since the urethra is situated very close to the rectum, this step is very important. For uncircumcised men, it is important to wash the foreskin after urination.
  4. Wear loose clothes: Tight fitting clothes trap moisture and aid in the multiplication of bacteria. Hence, always wear loose fitting clothes that keep the area around the urethra dry. Also, avoid synthetic underwear and only wear cotton underwear.
  5. Urinate after intercourse: The relative closeness of the vagina to the urethra makes it easy for bacteria to enter the urethra during intercourse. Hence, make it a habit of washing your pubic region after urinating. This helps flush out any possible bacteria that may have entered your body.
  6. Choose the correct method of birth control: Certain types of birth control such as diaphragms and spermicidal agents can promote a urinary tract infection. Hence, it is best to avoid these types of birth control and pick alternatives.

Why there are different opinion regarding anal fissures when some colorectal surgeons say after LIS surgery anal fissures do not come if occasionally stool becomes hard where other say it can come if stool get hard? But the fact is fissures occurs due to high resting pressure of internal sphincter muscle and during LIS surgery this high resting pressure reduce to normal pressure so why after surgery still fissure comes if stool get hard? But generally all people do not get fissures or ulcers if stool becomes hard, some people are habitually constipated still no anal fissures face.

General Surgeon, Srinagar
Hello user. Good to see you have researched quite a bit about your disease. Basically high pressure of the int. Sphinc. Is not the cause. It propagates the condition and doesn't allow the fissure to heal. Anal fissure fails to heal because of a cycle between constipation=pain=spasm. By doing LIS (lateral internal sphincterotomy) we break the cycle by targeting spasm and allow nature to heal the fissure. But still you can have hard stool sometimes causing injury to the delicate anal mucosa leading to fissure. But the difference is it will heal quickly as compared to in a patient whose internal sphincter is intact. So even if you have undergone an LIS, You should always avoid constipation by taking lots of fruits and fluids. You can add stool softners to diet. Besides make doing sitz bath bedtime a habit. It Dsnt cost anything. Does it? Hope it clears your doubts. Feel free to enquire more. Regards.

From your symptoms it appears that you are suffering from Anal Fistula problem. Generally surgery is recommended for Anal Fistula. It is observed that in about 20% cases Fistula recurs after surgery or VAAFT treatment. Complications like stool incontinence (inability to hold stool) also reported after Surgery for Anal Fistula. However Ayurveda recommends Ksharsutra Treatment for Anal Fistula. There is no recurrence of Fistula after after ksharsutra treatment and there no complication associated with Ksharsutra treatment. Clinical trials conducted by Indian Council of Medical Research at AIIMS New Delhi and PGI Chandigarh have proved that Ksharsutra Treatment is more effective and more convenient than surgery in case of Anal Fistula. You can contact through Lybrate to book appointment for clinical examination of your problem.

Tanks for your clear history of problem. The complaints and history is suggesting that Worm infestation, which is common in Children. In Ayurveda: The digestive enzyme called papain in the milky juice of the unripened papaya is a powerful substitute for killing roundworms. A tablespoonful of the fresh juice of an unripened papaya, and an equal amount of honey should be combined with three to four tablespoons of hot water and taken as a dose of 2 table spoons and repeat it on Day 2 also for a 10 years old child. This must be followed two hours later the above preperation by a dose of 15 to 30 ml of castor oil mixed in 250-300 ml of slightly warm milk. The worms will pass out through Stools.

My EGFR IS 83 now. In may it was 88. Where should I follow up? I prefer Ayurvedic medicine.
As you mentioned in May the EGFR was 88 and now 83, so it should be above 90 for normal function of Kidneys We need to know your previous medical history about Hypertension, Diabetes before judging about what medication to be given and also you need to undergo some more Investigations like Renal profile etc. For diagnosing your problem.

Hi lybrate-user Symptoms of pain while passing urine and burning sensation ar signs of urinary tract infection. There can be many causes for the same. You need to consult a Surgeon /Urologist ,who after clinically examining you would suggest few blood and urine tests and an ultrasound of lower abdomen. Once correct diagnosis is made treatment will be planned accordingly. You should be drinking plenty of water ,this will give partial relief to your symptoms.
