UTIs Don’t Always Cause Signs and Symptoms

(Newswire.net — February 18, 2018) Cheyenne, Wyoming — Heading to the bathroom to pee is obviously the only appropriate response to emptying a full bladder but when taking a whizz is accompanied by discomfort, using the loo can be a nightmare. Most strange sensations while urinating indicate that there’s a urinary tract infection at play as some germ, typically Escherichia coli (E. coli), has made its way up the tubular line which connects the kidneys and bladder to the outer world. 

“Urinary tract infections don’t always cause signs and symptoms, but when they do, they may include a strong persistent urge to urinate, a burning sensation when urinating, passing frequent small amounts of urine, urine that appears cloudy, urine that appears red, bright pink or cola-colored — a sign of blood in the urine, strong-smelling urine, pelvic pain, in women — especially in the center of the pelvis and around the area of the pubic bone,” details the Mayo Clinic.

No one could possibly ignore any of these symptoms as they’re pretty much a clear message that the body is sending. Antibiotics are most often prescribed to help expel the germs and repair the urinary tract. Also, given the nature of the infection, certain sections are considered more vulnerable than others.

“Lower urinary tract infections (UTIs) are very common and have been estimated to occur in at least 60% of women at some stage during their lives,” informs The U.S. National Library of Medicine. “Because of their high prevalence, UTIs are a public health concern, having an estimated cost of diagnosis and treatment exceeding US $25 billion over a 20-year period. UTIs are approximately 50-fold more common in adult females than males because women have shorter urethras that allow bacteria to ascend into the bladder.”

When the infection only damages the lining of the bladder, then it’s relatively simple to remedy, however there are some severe cases that blow up into full assault on the body, resulting in fever and pain along the mid to lower back. If a serious UTI is left unaddressed, it may even lead to hospitalization, especially if it evolves into septicaemia (“blood poisoning”).

“In some cases, a urinary infection may occur without these symptoms, and in anyone with a serious infection where the cause is not immediately obvious, a sample of urine should be tested for infection,” explains The National Kidney Federation, UK. “The opposite is also the case, sometimes people can have low levels of bugs in the urine without any problems. This is commoner in the elderly or when someone has a catheter tube to drain the urine from the bladder.”

To be on the safe side, it’s always advised to have a stock of test strips in a medicine chest to routinely check samples of urine for any untoward or excessive components whether or not any UTI symptoms are noticed since there are times when no observable changes are evident. The HealthyWiser™ Urinary Tract Infection Test Strips are among the best recommended diagnostic tools available as they further test for nitrite and pH levels for extra security.
