URINARY TRACT PROBLEMS
Kidney and urinary tract disorders can involve one or both kidneys, one or both ureters, the bladder, or the urethra, and in men, the prostate, one or both testes, or the epididymis. Some urinary tract disorders rarely cause symptoms until the problem is very advanced. These include kidney failure, tumors and stones that do not block urine flow, and some low-grade infections. Sometimes, symptoms occur but are very general or vague and are not always obviously related to the kidneys. For example, a general feeling of illness (malaise), loss of appetite, or nausea may be the only symptoms of advanced kidney failure. In older people, mental confusion may be the first recognized symptom of infection or kidney failure. Symptoms that are more suggestive of a kidney or urinary problem include pain in the side (flank), swelling of the feet or legs, and problems with urination.
HOW IS URINARY TRACT PROBLEMS DIAGNOSED?
The doctor can diagnose the bladder infection by performing a urinalysis. The doctor may also perform a urine culture, which is a test to determine the type of bacteria in the urine. Once the type of bacteria is known, testing the bacteria for antibiotic sensitivity is performed to determine what antibiotic will best treat the infection.
HOW IS URINARY TRACT PROBLEMS TREATED?
The initial line of treatment is done by prescribing a dose of antibiotics. Based on the severity further treatments such as a surgery to remove the kidney stone or to treat prostate is considered.
