Understanding Urinary Tract Infection (UTI)

Urinary Tract Infection (UTI) occurs when bacteria or other infectious organisms invade any part of the urinary tract. Infections of the lower tract are of the urethra (urethritis) or the bladder (cystitis). Infections of the upper tract are of the kidney (pyelonephritis) or the ureters (ureteritis).

Although UTIs occur in both men and women, women tend to suffer more from it because of the anatomical difference.

Women’s urethra tube is shorter than men’s, and the opening is just a short distance away from the vaginal tract and the rectal openings. Because of this, there is a higher risk of bacteria from these adjacent areas to scuttle up the tube into the bladder.

Among infants, UTI occurs more often with boys, but among toddlers, girls are more prone. Uncircumcised baby boys tend to accumulate bacteria under the foreskin. Young children with severe constipation problems are also more prone to UTIs.

Symptoms of Urinary Tract Infection (UTI)

Individuals who suffer from UTI often have an urgent need to urinate, and experience a painful burning sensation while urinating. The urgent need to urinate may cause uncontrollable loss of urine (incontinence), especially in older people. Urinary frequency (in small amounts) also increases during the night.

Fever is absent during UTI, but some may feel pain in the lower abdomen (above the pubic bone) and often in the lower back as well. The urine is often cloudy, with strong odor, and may contain visible blood in some.
