“Urinary Tract Infections are responsible for roughly 8 million doctor interactions each year. UTIs are the second most common type of infection.” - National Kidney Foundation.
Urinary tract infections (UTIs) affect your urinary tract, including your bladder (cystitis), urethra (urethritis) or kidneys (kidney infection). UTIs may be treated with antibiotics, but they're not always needed.
Women are at greater risk of developing a UTI than men. Infection limited to your bladder can be painful and annoying. However, serious consequences can occur if a UTI spreads to your kidneys. Doctors sometimes treat urinary tract infections with antibiotics. But you can take steps to reduce your chances of getting a UTI in the first place.
UTIs don't always present signs and symptoms, but when they do they may include:
- A strong, persistent urge to urinate
- A burning sensation when urinating
- Passing frequent, small amounts of urine
- Urine that appears cloudy
- Urine that appears red, bright pink or darker — a sign of blood in the urine
- Strong-smelling urine
- Feeling tired or shaky
- Fevers or chills
- Pelvic pain, in women — especially in the centre of the pelvis and around the area of the pubic bone
It is a widely held belief that cranberry juice will help with UTIs. It was thought that substances in cranberry juice could prevent bacteria from sticking to the wall of the urinary tract. However, research shows that cranberry products do not cure UTIs, and there is only weak evidence to support that they decrease the risk of developing UTIs in young patients. However, it is unlikely to do any harm.
Urinary tract infections are diagnosed by a medical assessment that considers your test results and your symptoms. Without the medical assessment, the test result only gives you an indication of the likelihood of infection. The more white cells (leukocytes) and nitrites that you have in your urine, the more likely you are to have a urinary tract infection.
