Urinary Tract Infection Info
A urinary tract infection (UTI) is an infection that affects part of the urinary tract. When it affects the lower urinary tract it is known as a simple cystitis (a bladder infection) and when it affects the upper urinary tract it is known as pyelonephritis (a kidney infection). Symptoms from a lower urinary tract include painful urination and either frequent urination or urge to urinate (or both), while those of pyelonephritis include fever and flank pain in addition to the symptoms of a lower UTI. In the elderly and the very young, symptoms may be vague or nonspecific. The main cause of both types of UTI is Escherichia coli, however other bacteria, viruses or fungi may also be the cause (though this is a lot rarer.)
Urinary tract infections occur more commonly in women than men, with half of women having at least one infection at some point in their lives. Recurrences are common. Risk factors include female anatomy, sexual intercourse and family history. Pyelonephritis, if it occurs, usually follows a bladder infection but may also result from a blood borne infection. Diagnosis in young healthy women can be based on symptoms alone. In those with vague symptoms, diagnosis can be difficult because bacteria may be present without there being an infection. In complicated cases or if treatment has failed, a urine culture may be useful. In those with frequent infections, low dose antibiotics may be taken as a preventative measure.
In uncomplicated cases, urinary tract infections are easily treated with a short course of antibiotics, although resistance to many of the antibiotics used to treat this condition is increasing. In complicated cases, longer course or intravenous antibiotics may be needed, and if symptoms have not improved in two or three days, further diagnostic testing is needed. In women, urinary tract infections are the most common form of bacterial infection with 10% of women developing urinary tract infections every year.
Some research suggests that cranberry (juice or capsules) may decrease the incidence in those with frequent infections; however a Cochrane Review of the available research has concluded that the benefit, if it exists, is small. Long-term tolerance is also an issue with gastrointestinal upset occurring in more than 30%. Cranberry juice is thus not currently recommended for this indication.
Some intravaginal probiotics may also be beneficial.
Helps noticeably with my interstitial cystitis. I put 1-2 teaspoons into my nutra organics protein (another brilliant product from healthpost) smoothie along with mixed frozen berries. Delicious. I don't mind drinking on its own but just prefer adding to smoothie.
I've suffered from chronic thrust for last two years with medication not helping at all. It's a pretty depressing to think you will be stuck with thrust for the rest of your life.
I have had success with probiotics with helping other issues I have so did some research, found this product and starting taking it.
While it hasn't completely fixed my issue, it's helped tremendously. I'm very happy
, it's such a relief.
Just something to keep in mind. It takes a while for probiotics to take effect, it took about two or three months of taking it to see results.
Highly recommend Uricleanse, great formulation with other herbs to further boost effectiveness.
I take 2 a day, along with a urogenital probiotic and a topical estrogen cream and after suffering intermittent UTI's and general bladder irritability, most likely part of perimenopause - feel back to normal at last, after suffering for many months. Thanks for making such a fantastic product!
