For leading a healthy lifestyle, good nutrition is an important aspect. Physical activities when combined with a nutritious diet, can help you to reach and maintain a healthy weight, reduce your risk of chronic diseases (like heart disease and cancer), and promote your overall health. But today's generation crave for wealth and not for health. Their hectic schedule just makes it impossible for them to take care of their health. Hence the graph of health issues is on a rise and people are losing their bodies’ immunity. This makes them prone to diseases and infections. Miric Biotech is concern about this seriously.
UTI (urinary tract infection) is the infection caused by microbes like bacteria in the urinary tract which includes kidney, ureter, bladder, or urethra. The most common cause of infection is Escherichia coli. This condition takes place when the bacteria win over the body's defense system. These infections are much more common in females than in males younger than 50 years of age.
Causes of UTI
Urinary tract infections typically occur when bacteria enter the urinary tract through the urethra and begin to multiply in the bladder. Though the urinary system is designed to keep these bacteria and other harmful microbes away, sometimes it fails resulting in infection of the urinary tract.
Symptoms of UTI
- An urge of urinating more often than usual
- Pain or discomfort while urinating
- Sudden urges to urinate
- Feeling as though you're unable to empty your bladder fully
- Pain low down in your tummy
- Strong-smelling urine
- A burning sensation when urinating
- Analysis of urine sample
- Imaging of urinary tract (MRI and CT scan)
Mostly antibiotic drugs are prescribed for treating UTI depending on the type of bacteria and your health condition. If your problem lasts more than a week then there is an urgent need to see a doctor.
