(Newswire.net — September 21, 2018) Orlando, FL — More and more research studies have been focusing on women and their urinary tract infections (UTIs). However, it is important to remember that it can happen to men too.

On a global level, UTIs are estimated to affect around 3 percent of men annually.

According to experts, this infection is not prevalent in men, particularly not those in their younger ages.

When a male suffers from a UTI, it produces symptoms like urine leakage, painful urination, frequent peeing, difficulty in initiating urination, cloudy urine, strong pee odor, pain in the lower abdomen, and a sluggish urine stream.

Males with complicated versions of UTIs can suffer from nausea, fever, chills, vomiting, and back pain.

The occurrence of these symptoms only indicate that the infection has already made its way to the upper urinary tract or the kidneys. When the infection spreads, it only means it needs immediate medical attention.

Researchers found that men who are beyond 50 years of age are more susceptible to UTIs. They have longer urethras than women, and this is one reason why they are often less susceptible to the infection.

According to experts, almost 95 percent of all cases of UTIs are caused by bacteria, which multiply at the urethral opening and travel up to the bladder.

Sammon et al. performed a study and found that 10.8 million Americans visited an Emergency Department (ED) for the treatment of a UTI between 2006 and 2009. This type of infection may affect one or more parts of the urinary system, such as the bladder, ureters, kidneys, and urethra.

There is an estimated number of 18 per 1000 persons annually suffering from UTI. It is further worth mentioning that it is also a major cause of hospital admissions, and are strongly associated with morbidity and mortality.

Some studies have revealed UTIs are more prevalent in women and older individuals. As a matter of fact, 50 percent of women have a lifetime risk of this infection.

When it is not treated, it can lead to an infection that eventually results in permanent kidney damage.

Some of the risk factors of UTIs are diabetes, being female, age, poor hygiene, and the use of catheter. It is strongly recommended to consume lots of water to flush out the UTI-causing bacteria from the body.

Natural remedies believed to be a lot safer than antibiotics include D-Mannose, which is a type of sugar found in cranberry. D-Mannose works by binding with the E.coli, UTI-causing bacteria, which are then flushed out of the body through urine.
