A urinary tract infection (UTI) is an infection that involves the kidneys, ureters, bladder, or urethra. These are the structures that urine passes through before being eliminated from the body. Urinary tract infections are one the most common type of infection in the body. Urinary tract infections are one of the most serious health problem striking millions of people each year. Women are especially prone to UTIs as compared to men, the reason for this is not well understood, but anatomic differences between the genders (a shorter urethra in women ) might be partially responsible.
Causes of UTI :
The urine is normally sterile. An infection occurs when bacteria get into the urine and begin to grow. The bacterial infection usually starts at the opening of the urethra where the urine leaves the body and move upward into the urinary tract. The culprit in atleast 90% uncomplicated infections is a type of bacteria called E.coli. These bacteria normally live in the bowel (colon) and around the anus.
Signs and Symptoms :
Ayurvedic View :
According to Ayurveda; mutrakricha (dysuria), ashmasri (renal calculus or stone) and prameha roga ( polyuria) are included under mutra vikara (diseases of the renal system). In Ayurveda, Meha Roga indicates diseases of the urinary system. Anything being excreted out in urine abnormally indicates meha roga. Urinary tract infections can be addressed as puyameha, which is described as pyuria in modern system of medicine.
