    UTI Symptoms, Diagnosis and Treatments UTI Symptoms, Diagnosis and Treatments Presentation Transcript

    • UTI Symptoms, Diagnosis and Treatments
      Most diagnosis for Urinary Tract Infections rely on physical examination and lab test of a urine sample. Symptoms of UTI usually commence suddenly and may include one or more of the following signs:
      • Passing small amounts of urine during frequent urges to urinate
      • While urinating there is a burning and or discomfort
      • Discomfort or pressure in the lower abdomen
      • Swelling in the abdomen
      • Cramping in the pelvic area or back.
      • There is frequently a strong smell and cloudy look to the urine
      and can contain some blood
      • Chills and fever develop on occasion
    • A clean-catch urine sample, in which urine is collected in midstream to prevent contamination with organisms present at the opening of the urethra, is crucial for laboratory analysis. The lab test will either be simple or more involved.  The simple test will determine the presence of bacteria while the more detailed test will be a culture for identification of the specific organism that is causing the infection. For women who experience recurring urinary tract infections there are very simple tests available at the local drug store. These tests are based on the detection of nitrates such as those of ammonia in the urine.
      Any treatment should include the goals to relieve the symptoms, eliminate the infection, prevent return and prevent more serious problems like kidney damage.
    • UTI symptomsare regularly treated with sulfonamides or other antibiotics, such as amoxicillin, ciprofloxacin, ampicillin, or nitrofurantoin. Depending on the amount of pain during urination, Physicians typically prescribe some for of pain relief, such as pyridum.
      Antibiotics are powerful drugs used for treating many serious and life-threatening infectious diseases, but taking them when you don't need to can lead to antibiotic-resistant germs.  Antibiotics are only effective against bacterial infections, certain fungal infections and some types of parasites. Most infections result from either bacteria or viruses.
    • Naturally treating a urinary tract infection can be a very successful choice to antibiotics and have been used for centuries to treat pain and discomfort as well as tackle the underlying symptoms. Herbal remedies for urinary tract infections are safe and have no side effects. They also sustain one's physical, mental, and emotional health, rather than merely treating UTI symptoms. Using herbal and homeopathic remedies for urinary tract infections is also less likely to be a factor in frequent infections, and can consequently provide a secure and longer-lasting solution to this common yet painful medical condition.
