- Frequent Urination
- Urinary Tract Infection
Urinary tract infections are caused by microbes such as bacteria overcoming the body’s defenses in the urinary tract. They can affect the kidneys, bladder, and the tubes that run between them. A urinary tract infection (UTI) is an infection of any part of the urinary system.Most infections involve the lower urinary tract. UTIs are given different names depending on where they occur: Bladder infection – cystitis, Urethra infection – urethritis, Kidney infection – pyelonephritis. The ureters are very rarely the site of infection.
As urinary tract infections are normally caused by bacteria, they are most commonly treated with antibiotics or antimicrobials. The type of medication and length of treatment will depend on the patient’s symptoms and history.
- Hematuria (blood in the urine)
Blood that you can see is called gross hematuria. Urinary blood that’s visible only under a microscope is known as microscopic hematuria and is found when your doctor tests your urine.
Either way, it’s important to determine the reason for the bleeding. Treatment depends on the underlying cause. Various factors that lead to hematuria are urinary track infection, kidney infections, idney stones, Urological tumors, certain medications, inherited disorders and sometimes strenuous exercises.
