urinary tract infectionHave you ever felt an unusual urgency to urinate over a couple of days, or a burning sensation while you urinate? You were most likely having a urinary tract infection (UTI).

Approximately, 150 million people across the world are diagnosed with Urinary Tract Infection every year (1). UTI’s are generally treated with antibiotics however the bacteria causing the infection has become resistant to most of them. Due to this recurring UTI’s have become a major concern. (2)

For this reason, it is better to look back to traditional home remedies for urinary tract infection which are better alternative solutions to treat UTI’s and prevent recurrent infections.

Before learning various home remedies for kidney pain and urinary tract infections, let’s have a look at what is urinary tract infection and what caused it.

What is Urinary Tract Infection?

The urinary tract comprises of organs which are involved in making and transporting urine out of the body. These organs include a pair of kidneys and ureters, a bladder, and a urethra.

A urinary tract infection is therefore, an infection of any or a combination of these organs. In 90% of the cases, infection can be caused due to bacteria called E.coli or Staphylococcus saprophyticus. (3, 4)

These bacteria are either neutral or beneficial until it stays in the digestive tract however when it migrates to urinary tract, it causes infection.

In some cases, it can be caused due to fungi (rare cases) or other common bacteria that causes UTI are Klebsiella species, and Proteus species.

Symptoms of UTI include lower abdominal pain, flank pain, bloody urine, or fever. However, sometimes you might have no symptom at all, which is described as asymptomatic bacteriuria.

Now…You might be wondering how these bacteria gain access to urinary organs.

There are few conditions that can help the bacteria or fungus to access the organs and cause an infection.

  • Sexual intercourse
  • Placement of a urinary catheter
  • Other urinary devices used in the hospital
  • Abnormalities in the structure of the urinary organs
  • Holding the urine in bladder for longer time
  • Diabetes mellitus
  • Decreased immunity
  • Overuse of antibiotics
  • Kidney transplant

We will discuss in detail regarding these factors later in the article…

How to Cure Urinary Tract Infection

In most of the cases, home remedies are enough to treat the urinary tract infection. However if you are experiencing blood in urine, fever, difficulty in passing urine or flank pain then it indicates serious infection which needs medical help.

Home Remedies for Urinary Tract Infection

1. Increase Fluid Intake

Hydration is a key factor in the treatment of UTI. As per study conducted in 2013 by University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas, low fluid intake often linked to risk factor of urinary tract infections (5). Apart from that various other studies have also confirmed the same. (6, 7)

Drinking plenty of water or fluids throughout the day helps to flush out the bacteria from the infected organs. Stick to consuming at least 8 ounces of water per day. However, you can increase the intake a little more than it.

2. Pee Often

As per a study, holding urine for longer period of time can encourage bacterial growth which can result in a urinary tract infection (8)

Urinating whenever the urge arises without holding helps to flush out the bacteria. It also ensures the bacterium isn’t growing in the urine.

Especially after sexual intercourse, urinating immediately helps to flush out the bacteria that might have entered urethra from your partner.

3. Garlic

Tips and Precautions To Prevent UTI

The following are tips which you should know and employ if you want relief from symptoms of a UTI:

1. Avoid Spermicides

Spermicides nurture bacterial growth and also cause irritation of the urinary tract just as unlubricated condoms and diaphragms would do.

2. Avoid alcohol

I’m sure you are trying to link alcohol intake with an infection. Well, here’s the thing: alcohol irritates your bladder which worsens the symptoms of a urinary tract infection.

3. Reduce or Avoid Caffeine

If you have a urinary tract infection, you need to completely avoid caffeinated drinks, because just like alcohol, caffeine is a potent irritant to your bladder which further ads to the discomfort in a UTI.

4. Urinate after sex

I would describe this as preventive against a urinary tract infection, if there is a chance that your partner has it. However, for a woman, after sexual intercourse, it is safe to wipe from front – backwards to avoid introduction of microorganisms from the vagina to the urethral opening .

5. Use Cotton

Cotton underwear and pantyhose are recommended to maintain cleanness and dryness around the pelvic area. Less irritation to that area reduces your risk of a urinary tract infection

8. Avoid the C’s

It is better to avoid chocolate, citrus, and carbonated drinks when you suffering from UTI. Just like coffee, all the above-mentioned food items can irritate the bladder, causing the inflammation to progress and your symptoms stay for a little longer.

9. Take over-the-counter pain relievers

Common examples of acetaminophen and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS) are ibuprofen, aspirin, and diclofenac. These drugs provide relief from the pain.

10. Take Supplements

There are a number of supplements which you can get without a doctor’s prescription for treating UTI. Examples of these are Lauricidin, Nattokinase, and apolactoferrin.

Lauricidin has strong antimicrobial properties. It attacks bacteria by destroying their cell walls and blocking their growth. Lauridicin targets a group of bacteria called gram positive bacteria including streptococcus, clostridium, and staphylococcus. This supplement has little effect on the root cause of UTI on young adults, E Coli.

Nattokinase is an enzyme produced by bacteria found in a fermented food called natto. Nattokinase, when consumed helps to damage the thick walls of the bacteria.

Other Causes of a Urinary Tract Infection

1. Catheter placement

A catheter is a long tube which is passed through the urethra into the bladder to help a person pass urine if he is either not able to pass urine themselves or for whom urine passage is to be measured by their doctor. Unfortunately, these catheters inoculate small bacteria into the bladder.

2. Urinary Instrumentation

Certain instruments are passed up the urethra in certain procedures by the doctors. Like urethral sound – which is used to open up the urethra who suffered from urinary injury. These devices can introduce bacteria into the urethra causing infection.

3. Sexual intercourse

This is a very common cause of a urinary tract infection especially in young adults. If a sexual partner has a urinary tract infection, there is a risk of getting it to be transmitted to the other partner during intercourse.

4. Kidney Transplant

Because of the reduced immunity and due to the drugs used, a patient may be at risk of a urinary tract infection. However, this is not a common cause of UTI.

5. Reduced Immunity

This happens when you have diabetes, are on drugs for cancer, have HIV, chronic disease of the liver, or has renal failure.

How Do Doctors Cure UTI?

Before commencing treatment for a urinary tract infection, your doctor may suggest for some investigations to diagnose the presence of infection.

These investigations include urinalysis, which involves using a multi-colored strip to detect changes in the chemical components of urine, it also involves visualizing the small particles and cells in the urine under a microscope.

Other investigations include urine culture to know which organism is responsible for the infection, and complete blood count to see if the infection had become complicated.

After investigations, once the UTI is confirmed, the doctor would place you on antibiotics, which are the mainstay for the treatment of UTI.

Examples of these antibiotics include penicillins, ciprofloxacin,Bactrim, gentamycin, and nitrofurantoin. Your doctor would write a prescription of these medications either in single or in combination. It is always advisable that you take it for the complete duration even if you feel your symptoms have subsided.

Conclusion

Urinary tract Infection (UTI) is an infection of any or a combination of urinary organs namely the kidneys, ureters, bladder, and urethra.

The symptoms of UTI include burning sensation while you urinate, frequent urination, and an urgency to go to urinate. Occasionally, you may have bloody urine, flank pain, and lower abdominal pain depending on which urinary organ is infected.

What places you at risk of having a UTI include sexual intercourse, diabetes, holding urine for long periods, catheters and other devices passed up your urethra at the hospital, and a suppressed immunity
