Urinary Tract Infection Symptoms - Get Rid of UTI!

Urinary Tract Infection Symptoms -

Urinary Tract Infection, or UTI, is a common medical issue experienced by millions of people every year. It is caused by bacteria, usually E.Coli, infecting the urinary tract though it is, on occasion, also caused by certain species of fungus.

Ninety five percent of urinary tract infections are caused by bacteria growing and multiplying around the opening of the urinary tract but on rare occasion it can travel there directly from the blood stream. The most common form of UTI is cystitis, which occurs when the bladder becomes infected. A rarer and much more serious version is pyelonephritis, which is an infection of the kidneys and/or ureters. Urinary Tract Infection Symptoms range from the obvious to the subtle. Identifying them early is the key to getting more effective treatment.
Who Is At Risk?

Women are much more at risk for UTI than men, most likely because their urinary tract is shorter than it is in men and therefore bacteria have an easier time traveling to and infecting the tract.

Women who are highly sexually active are more at risk than those who are not. Spermicides and lubricants are also risk factors, as they can transfer E.Coli if not used safely. Women who have reached menopause are also at greater risk due the decrease in estrogen in the urinary tract lining. Pregnant women, while not more susceptible to the illness itself, are in greater danger of symptoms which may harm the baby or mother. Due to the extra risk to them, all women have a colony of beneficial bacteria in their vagina that create a hostile environment to other bacteria, although this line of defense is not fool-proof.

Although women are the most susceptible to urinary tract infection, men and children also contract it regularly. Around twenty percent of all urinary tract infections happen in men. Although not as much at risk, men have a higher chance than women of developing more serious problems and complications as a result of infection. Children account for three percent of UTI cases. Urinary tract infection symptoms are often mistaken for symptoms of other conditions in the elderly.
