FAQ's For Urinary Tract Infections


UTIs are caused by bacteria from the large intestine travelling to the urethral opening through the anus. The most common UTI-causing bacteria is E. Coli.

A doctor will prescribe you with antibacterial prescription medication which you must take. Otheriwse, drinking cranberry juice and lots of water are effective ways to aid in treating a UTI.

If a patient follows their medical regimen, a UTI can take upto 48 hours to go away. However if the infection has spread to the kidneys, it can take a week to recover from. Without treatment, UTIs rarely ever go away.

Though stress does not directly cause a UTI, it increases the level of cortisol in the body. This hormone reduces immunity, which makes the body more susceptible to infection.

It is recommended to avoid beverages which irritate the bladder such as caffeinated drinks and alcohol. Citric fruits, artificial sweeteners and spicy foods should also be avoided.

A UTI or Urinary Tract Infection is an infection affecting the urinary system of the body. It can occur in the urethra, kidneys, bladder or ureters. Women often suffer from UTIs due to the shorter length of the urethra, making it much easier for bacteria to enter. Although much more common in women, it is estimated that 1 in 10 men will experience a UTI at least once in their lifetime. A UTI is caused by bacteria like E. coli entering the urethra from the large intestine through the anus. UTI symptoms include:
Frequent need to urinate, even if little urine comes out
Burning sensation during urination
Cloudy, bloody or dark urine
Urine with a strange smell
Pain in the lower abdomen or lower back
Fever or chills

A fever may indicate that the infection is getting worse, and has spread upward into the kidneys (pyelonephritis).

UTI treatment begins with antibiotics prescribed by a doctor, which must be taken even after a patient starts feeling better in order to prevent reinfection. These help to kill E. Coli bacteria causing the infection. Pain relievers and heating pads can be used to ease abdominal pain. To flush out the bacteria from a patient’s urinary system, drink lots of water. Cranberries are often used as natural treatments for UTI. It contains a tannin which prevents E. Coli bacteria from adhering to the walls of the bladder. HerbsDaily offers a wide selection of natural supplements including cranberry extract tablets which help effectively treat a Urinary Tract Infection.
