My mother has been getting frequent urinary tract infections. The doctor says that for people her age (80), an antibiotic works for a couple of weeks, then the infections comes back. When the infection recurs, she becomes combative, confused, and very weak. We have decided to have her urine cultured monthly to try to stay on top of this. However, there must be a better way. Mom has alzheimers, but when she is not dealing with the UTI, she is capable. How can we stem this once and for all?
I have 10 mg Prednisone tabs with me but the directions are to take 40 mg for angioedema and gradually decrease dosage. I know that if I take this dosage I will be up all night but am really uncertain about how much I should take. Using Aveeno to sooth the welts with minimal effect. I empathize with anyone going through this experience. Any suggestions appreciated. Am thinking of thinking an immunologist since the allergist was absolutely no health.
A year ago, I was diagnosed with Temporal Arteritis and also had a urinary tract infection. I was put on prednisone and have been on it for over a year with varying dosages. I have not be able to keep the burning after urination and urgency to stop. Sometimes, at night, I wake up and have an accident on my way to the bathroom.
Lomustine and prednisone are both a bit immunosuppressive. She may just have a urinary tract infection. UTI's can be brought on by stress, such as being boarded. It may take her a bit longer to get over the infection due to the Lomustine, prednisone and the lymphoma.
Ladies, I wanted to mention that if you keep treating yourself for a yeast infection and it's not clearing up at all, it could be a bacterial infection. That happened to me before. Bacterial infections have very similar symptoms and are treated with (yea!) antibiotics. You should really see a doctor if self-treatment isn't working. And for the ladies who have been told it is or might be herpes, I went through this too.
She did abruptly stop taking it but she hasnt been on it for that long so are withdrawal symptoms still possible after taking Prednisone for such a short period of time. Other things to mention.
Blood in the urine is never normal. Causes can include urinary tract infection, prostate infection, kidney stones, kidney disease, or bladder cancer. Simple things like vigorous exercise can also cause microscopic blood in the urine. Depending on the age, a cystoscopy or IVP can be considered to evaluate the urinary tract and bladder, a CT scan be done to evaluate for kidney stones, and an ultrasound be done to examine the kidney stucture.
Hello, Hematuria or blood in the urine can be caused by bleeding from anywhere along the urinary tract. The most common cause is an infection because of the inflammation in the urinary tract. Urinary stones can cause abrasion and irritation resulting in hematuria. Other possible cause is a kidney condition called glomerulonephritis. I would suggest that you consult your Doctor so further investigation can be done.
I tell my doctor about it and he always says it must be some sort of infection and to come in for immediate blood testing while it's happening. Well, thing is, it ALWAYS happens late at night. There has been no rhyme or reason to this thing, either. But, the symptoms are always the same: extreme chills which induce shaking and teeth chattering, cannot warm up, no fever...ever.
Prednisone in very high doses can sometimes cause gastric ulcers. I cannot find a connection between the urinary tract infection and the vomiting of blood either. I am glad that the blood work came back showing all normal parameters. This means that your dog doe not have a bleeding.
Most often it is related to urinary tract problems like kidney stones, inflammation of urinary tract, prostate enlargement, renal vein thrombosis, certain kidney tumors and polycystic kidney disease, blood coagulation disorders and anticoagulants. The CT scan has ruled out any kinder stones.
Kidney infection or urinary tract infection is not related to your allergy, it is an independent factor. Recurrent urinary tract infection is common in presence of Anatomic abnormalities resulting in obstruction, stasis, or reflux of urinary flow all predisposes towards recurrent urinary infections. Even reduced immunity due to systemic infection is also responsible for these conditions.
Either one should be able to work you up and determine appropriate treatments. If you are having recurrent urinary tract infection, often antibiotic suppression is given. If your symptoms are not related to an actual infection, but instead the result of an over active bladder, this condition and also be treated. J.

I suggest that you discuss with your doctor regarding these other factors (the infection angle) and be worked up for such. These can be treated with antibiotics if proven. Regards.
I've been feeling like **** and you know what? I got a kidney bladder Urinary tract infection two weeks ago. I'm a guy and didn't know this could happen. So they put me on Bactrim ds. An antibiotic. Well for two days that anti biotic made me sick to my stomach to smoke and Monday (February 18th, 2008) I woke up and haven't had an urge to smoke. Not even irritable. However I had to go to the ER because I couldn't breathe. My chest was tight and I could barely breathe in.
I'm not 100% sure about your urination issue, but I'm guessing it could be the beginnings of a urinary tract infection or dehydration. Of course, when you're dehydrated (and you can be without "feeling" thirsty), your urine becomes much more concentrated and darker in color, however, a brown color usually isn't a color you'd see.
Abstract A model of renal infection due to lower urinary tract obstruction and biofilm disease was constructed for the study of renal scarring by inserting glass beads coated with bacterial biofilm into the bladder of rats and then clamping the urethra. We previously reported the effect of antimicrobial therapy used in combination with the anti-inflammatory agent prednisolone to prevent renal scarring.
I am 22 yrs old and I have Persistent Bacterial Vaginosis, with other things such as yeast infections and urinary tract infections from time to time. Lately, new symptoms are emerging that causes Pain around the anus. I wonder if the infection has spread. Doctors treated me with antibiotics, metrodidazole, diflucan, and hemroidal cream during the past. My UTI and yeast infection symptoms went away but the bacterial vaginosis persisted.

Just over three weeks ago I began experiencing burning in my urinary tract. I thought it would go away, but it persisted and got worse over the next few days. I went to a doctor, and they of course thought it might be an std. They gave me a 'cocktail' of antibiotics, as well as running urine and blood test. A few days later it got very extreme, painful and burning. I went back to see a Dr and he had the test back... normal.
Pain in the lower abdomen, pelvis, and vagina can be due to infection (STD, non-STD like bacterial vaginosis, yeast), pelvic inflammatory disease, urinary tract infection (UTI), uterine fibroids, urinary bladder infection or cystitis. If you do not have any discharge and there is no other symptom then it can also be due to pinched nerve (either pudendal or spinal). These conditions are broadly classified as chronic pelvic pain syndrome.
It would be best to try to identify the cause, but this can be difficult. Many anemia's are treated with prednisone. Blood found in an urinalysis could be from a urinary tract infection, anemia, or iatrogenic due to acquiring the urine via a cystocensis.
I'm curious if one is feeding into the other - for example, does an infection trigger the arthritis, or can the inflammation and pain from the arthritis trigger a UTI or symptoms of UTI. Thank you!
Physicians should advise patients, at the first sign of tendon pain, swelling, or inflammation, to stop taking the fluoroquinolone, to avoid exercise and use of the affected area, and to promptly contact their doctor about changing to a non-fluoroquinolone antimicrobial drug. Selection of a fluoroquinolone for the treatment or prevention of an infection should be limited to those conditions that are proven or strongly suspected to be caused by bacteria.
Other possiblilities include early renal disease, which has not as yet shown up in the blood work, a latent Urinary Tract Infection, bladder stones, or a new behavioral disorder. Lyme disease can also cause kidney problems, so please have your dog's blood tested for Lyme disease and the other common tick borne disease's common in your area. If he does have Lyme (or other tick borne diseases), treating the Lyme disease with Doxycycline can help the kidneys if treated early.
The urine leaking might be from simple lack of muscle tone that comes with age; a urinary tract infection; or even kidney failure. I'm a bit surprised your vet hasn't discussed this with you or advised another exam before adding more medication. You can bring a fresh urine sample in and ask him to do a quick dip stick test to see if infection is present. It's not as in-depth a test that would be needed to evaluate for things like electrolyte levels, but it's an inexpensive place to begin.
