Know more on the causes, preventions and treatment of UTI
Urinary Tract Infection (UTI) can affect people at any stage – pre CKD, dialysis and even post transplant. It begins in the lower urinary tract with symptoms such as frequent urination and discomfort while urinating. However, you will start experiencing more severe symptoms once the infection has travelled up to the kidneys. UTI could even be a cause for kidney failure. The stage of CKD plays an important role in determining antibiotic treatment and infection management. For people whose underlying cause has been UTI, frequent recurrence can be a nightmare. How does it happen? Why does it persist in some people? Some understanding on the root cause and solution options will emerge through the discussions with your doctor.
