Urinary tract Health
Urinary tract Health:
Urinary tract health refers to how well the system works at removing wastes and producing and controlling urine, as well as any disorders or problems that might occur within the tract. These problems can affect the urinary tract as a whole, or just certain parts of the tract, such as the bladder. Symptoms of an upper tract urinary infection in men are similar to those in women. Symptoms of a lower tract urinary infection in men sometimes includes rectal pain in addition to the common symptoms shared by both men and women. Women with a lower tract urinary infection may experience pelvic pain.
Treatment of UTIs (Uninary Tract Infection) depends on the cause. The doctor will be able to determine which organism is causing the infection from the test results used to confirm the diagnosis. The form of antibiotic used to treat a bacterial UTI usually depends on what part of the tract is involved. Lower tract UTIs can usually be treated with oral antibiotics. Upper tract UTIs require intravenous antibiotics. These antibiotics are put directly into the veins.
