The first symptoms appear in the form of frequent, painful and difficult urination with a burning or burning sensation, an unpleasant feeling of an empty bladder or a frequent urge to urinate with a scarce amount of urine. Also, urine is very often cloudy, has an unpleasant odor and sometimes in the presence of blood. It is very important that the urinary tract infection is treated as soon as possible so that the condition is not complicated.
Stanje se komplicira kada bakterije zahvate bubrege, što može dovesti do ozbiljne infekcije – pijelonefritisa. Pyelonephritis most often occurs when bacteria enter the urinary system and pass through the urethra to the kidneys and multiply. Pyelonephritis is most commonly caused by Escherichia coli.
Women as a more vulnerable group are more prone to urinary tract infections
Women are the most susceptible and most often struggle with urinary tract infections due to the shorter urethra and proximity of the anus, which causes bacteria to move very easily into the urinary tract. Particularly at risk are younger women, pregnant women, girls (due to poor vaginal hygiene), women in the period immediately before or after menopause and diabetics.
Women suffer from urinary tract infections much more often than men, and more than 50 percent of women will develop the infection during their lifetime. A worrying fact is that in about 20 percent of women, the infection recurs. The most commonly recommended treatment is through antibiotics, which can affect the development of antibiotic-resistant strains.
Although they help, antibiotics are not the happiest solution if used over a long period of time because they also kill good microorganisms in our body, leading to major health disorders.
Although inflammation is more common in women due to anatomical factors, men are not spared and inflammation is equally painful and uncomfortable.
