Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are a painful problem that can affect any part of the urinary system, although it generally occurs in the urethra and bladder. UTI can be caused by E. coli, gastrointestinal bacteria, or sexually transmitted infections. Not drinking enough water or urinating holding your urine excessively can increase your risk of getting a UTI. UTIs are generally treated with antibiotics, but there are some natural remedies, including unsweetened cranberry juice and vitamin C.
- Most people who haven’t experience urinary tract infection (UTI) are very lucky because those who have know how painful it can be.
- The risk of coming into contact with UTI can increase when one has diabetes, disability and sexual intercourse since they help bacteria to spread.
- Some habits can also increase the chances of having UTI. These habits are holding one’s pee, wiping the wrong way, and not drinking enough water.
“Dehydration interferes with the kidney’s ability to filter out toxins from the body so you don’t get the urge to urinate as often since you have nothing to release. This gives bacteria in your urinary tract the chance to propagate and infect your organs before you have the opportunity to flush them out.”
