Sure Signs You Have an UTI, Say Physicians

0 2 years ago

Anyone who’s had a UTI knows how painful and annoying they can be. It’s common to feel discomfort in your lower abdomen, pelvic area and even your back and if left untreated, a UTI infection can spread to one or kidneys causing severe damage in some cases. “A UTI, the acronym for urinary tract infection, is one of those pesky urological problems that many people (especially women) will experience, and likely never forget, at least once in their lifetime. In fact, UTIs are responsible for millions of trips to the doctor’s office every year. Understanding why a UTI occurs can go a long way towards preventing the pain and discomfort that can accompany them,” Dr. S. Adam Ramin, MD, urologist and medical director of Urology Cancer Specialists in Los Angeles, CA, tells Eat This, Not That! Health. Dr. Ramin also revealed signs of a UTI to watch out for and how to help prevent one.

Dr. Ramin shares, “For most healthy people who properly hydrate, urine should be nearly odorless or in some cases should only have a slight scent of ammonia to it. Sometimes, one of the early signs of an impending UTI is a distinctly unusual smell or cloudy appearance of your urine. If you suddenly notice a foul or otherwise unusual smell to it, this may indicate a urinary tract infection or urinary stones, especially if the smell is also accompanied by a cloudy appearance. These signs warrant a trip to your doctor for evaluation. If you can catch it early, there’s a better chance of treating it before more unpleasant symptoms arise.”
