There are some people who experience untreated urinary tract infections. Some people who have this will get their symptoms to go away over time. Some people develop more serious conditions that cannot be ignored. It is already a known fact that women may get afflicted by UTI more than men so women may need to become more aware of the signs and symptoms of this condition.

Recurrent UTI There are some men and women who experience recurrent UTI. This means that even if they were able to treat their UTI in the past, the UTI just goes back all over and over again. If you are prone to getting UTI, you should know how to do recurrent UTI prevention.

Possible Effects of UTI on the Body What are the things that might occur when people do not get treatment for UTI? One of the reasons why people do not get treated is not because of the lack of money. Some do not get treated because they do not experience any symptoms.

There are some people who are more prone to getting these conditions because of UTI:

  • Stroke
  • Parkinson’s Disease
  • Dementia

The most common serious condition that people may experience is a kidney infection. The infection from the urinary tract infection may spread to the kidney. When this happens, a portion of the kidney stops functioning. It may come to a point when the kidney does not want to function anymore and this can become a problem.

What You Can Do You can always prevent your body from getting a urinary tract infection. This means that there are some things that you can do:

  • Drink more water so that the body can flush out the toxins from the body easily.
  • One of the ways that you can get UTI is by having sex. Prevent UTIs after sex by washing yourself before and after the act.
  • You can also take antibiotics as recommended by the doctor if you are prone to having UTI.

The best uti prevention is always to become more hygienic. This will decrease the chances of getting infected.
