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.
Scared not to take it.
After getting recurring urinary infections, a friend suggested taking Uricleanse. This has worked incredibly. Two a day keeps everything healthy. Will keep purchasing.
Amazing product , highly recommend, had previous bad uti infections needing antibiotics to clear up , since taking cranberry one a day no more problems or issues with bladder infections , and body back to 100 percent health ☺
An incredible product! Thank you!
Wow, this product works quickly. We'll always have this in our first aid kit as it is so invaluable. It seems to 'head things off' so things don't get out of hand which they can do quickly with UTI when just left. The price is excellent compared to other brands plus it is not the synthetic d-mannose. We were grateful for a prompt arrival of this product as we needed it with some urgency. Please do consider selling it in a larger pottle, thanks..
