Frequently Asked Questions

1. How does one acquire a urinary tract infection?

A urinary tract infection arises when bacteria gain access to the urinary tract and begin to multiply there. Escherichia coli, commonly known as E.coli, is the most common bacteria infecting the urinary tract. The bacteria mainly enter the urinary tract via the urethra and gut. Other less commonly known bacteria causing UTI are Staphylococcus, Pseudomonas and Klebsiella. The risk factors that predispose a person to urinary tract infection are using a catheter, incomplete emptying of the urinary bladder, diabetes mellitus, impaired immune system, holding urine for long, prostatitis and enlarged prostate.

2. Explain E.coli and its role?

Escherichia coli or E.coli is a bacterium that causes a majority of the urinary tract infections, nearly 85%. E.coli sits in the human intestine and is passed out in stool. If for some reason the bacterium manages to reach the urethra, it leads to infection and subsequent symptoms of UTI.

3. How do I know I have UTI, what are its key symptoms?

Burning sensation while urinating for one. If you experience burning while urinating, there is a fair chance you have acquired UTI. In some cases, the burning sensation may be present before and after urination. Other symptoms that may attend are – a persistent urge to urinate, scanty urine and pain in pubic region. The urine may be cloudy/red and offensive. Fever with chills and nausea or vomiting may be present.

4. What tests would a doctor run to confirm UTI?

In suspected cases of acute UTI, a routine urine examination is the first step. Pus cells mean UTI. A urine culture reveals the bacteria involved in causing this urinary tract infection. In case of recurrent urinary tract infections, a CT scan, MRI and cystoscopy may be recommended.

5. Why are women more prone to UTI than men?

The length of urethra is short and its orifice quite close to the anus in women. This leads to higher chances of acquiring a urinary tract infection.

6. Can UTI lead to other complications?

A urinary tract infection, if treated well in time, does not lead to any complications. However, if untreated, there are chances of the infection ascending and travelling up to the kidney leading to kidney damage. In recurrent urethritis, there are high chances to developing urethral stricture.

7. I have recurrent UTI and am prescribed antibiotics each time. Does Homeopathy have a permanent solution?

Yes, recurrent urinary tract infection can be treated with great success under the Homeopathic mode of treatment. Homeopathy is a symptom based science. Therefore, even though there are a wide range of medicines to treat recurrent UTI, the most appropriate among them is selected after a detailed study of the individual symptoms involved.

8. My routine urine test shows pus cells, what does that mean?

Pus cells in the urine mainly arise from two reasons – a urinary tract infection or a sexually transmitted disease (STD).

9. Can lifestyle changes help manage urinary tract infection (UTI)?

Taking the following lifestyle measure can help manage urinary tract infections:

  • Drink plenty of water.
  • Clean anus from front to back after defecation as the bacteria Escherichia Coli (E.coli) majorly involved in causing UTI is passed in stool.
  • Avoid holding urine for long and attend the call of nature without delay.
  • Maintain personal hygiene.
