It's not the same as the regular-yogurt-on-the-go drinks, but it's called Actimel which has 10 times the active cultures in it that yogurt does and it's proven to boost immunity and is great for the digestive tract. All of these measures have paid off for me, as the infections have significantly dropped off. I think the key is to be consistent in your preventive measures. Hope this is helpful. Good luck to you, I know how horrible those infections are.
Or that her tonsils could be the source of any immune issues that would cause her to be supsectible to bacterial infection even in her urinary tract? We greatly appreciate your help.
I have had kidney stones removed surgically on three occasions over the past ten years. Each time the Dr. has left a stent in my urinary tract. The first two times the stent had a string attached to it. When the stent was removed it caused minimal discomfort. The third time which was perfomed recently, the Dr. said he preferred not to attach a string to the stent. I agreed, not knowing that I was agreeing to a procedure that was infinitely different from my previous experiences.
As my fatigue increased I was excerising less frequently, kept forgetting to take my vitamins, and I gained weight! Add to this that I started experiencing frequent urinary tract infections. My Endo then referred me for an ultrasound which indicated a large Kidney Stone and Gallstones - now waiting on a referral with a Urologist. After a 'normal' ECG and blood work up, my endo indicated my hemoglobin was a 'little low'.
First it is entirely possible to get afib via gas bloat and other stomach and digestive tract disorders. If your stomach and digestive tract is as described then you must have inflamation. All this inflamation and bloat and gas will push up on your diaphram and surrounding areas and cause great discomfort and pain but also can press upon nerves.
My sister in law who is BCMSMOM on the board posted in mid Feb about her thyroid and a large nodule that was pressing on her trachea!!! She had it out and it is benign and she can breathe with ease again ... they were afraid it would choke her to death it was sooooo large! Glad to help anytime .. I am not a thyroid expert by any means .. all my stuff started in thyroid with a routine appt in October and the rest is history .. they found a small lump on my thyroid during routine exam!!!!
I have passed a few kidney stones and had urinary tract infections but that has been going on for me the past 2.5yrs and followed closely by a Uro and Prim. Care Dr. I don't think that would be related at all to hypo vs. hyper, etc. Interesting thread ..
Acne and hair loss are specific symptoms that we can treat. Poor libido, frequent urinary tract infections or other genitourinary complaints may also be amenable to hormonal treatment. There is no need to suffer the changes of “old age” that are merely hormonal imbalances that we can treat. Treat yourself by coming in and talking to our trained physicians! Men Men suffer from hormonal imbalances, just like women.
(These started last summer). I also have chronic urinary tract infections and regularly take Macrobid then 2 weeks later I take a 10 day course of Cipro when the infection comes back. So I really do believe I could have a yeast overgrowth. I also crave sugar and carbs like crazy! and I still eat them despite the fact that I only eat 1500 calories a day. As a result I am always hungry because I eat a lot of empty calories. Any advice about anything would be helpful.
(well I passed 2 out of the 3 in the last 4 years) and have had no probs with urinary tract infections or more stones while taking the Vit. D/Calcium. Sometimes its "damned if you do and damned if you dont" and I figured I wanted quality of life regardless of the kidney stones. I counteract the kidney and stones with Cranberry Capsules which have been a lifesaver for me. No UTI's since taking them in the last 11 months whereas before, I was getting on average 12 a year!
For your urinary symptoms two causes which need to be ruled out are urinary tract infection and prostatitis. While the commonest cause of prostatitis is usually repeated bladder infections, the cause of UTI is bacteria that initially settle (colonise) around the urethra (urine tube), and then ascend into the rest of the urinary tract. You should get a urine examination, urine culture and your PSA (prostate specific antigen) levels estimated.
* Inadequate iron intake * Rapid periods of growth * Heavy menstruation * Pregnancy * Frequent or excessive blood donations * Surgery or accidents * Medications that cause bleeding such as aspirin, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medicines (NSAIDs) * Bleeding due to conditions such as ulcers, haemorrhoids, hiatal hernias, colon polyp, colon cancer * Hypochloridia (low stomach acid), achlorhydria (no stomach acid) * Bowel diseases such as Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis,
and it is a pool that produces kidney stones and/or urinary tract infections.

I always get to bed at a decent time, which is why this doesn't make sense to me. I had two Urinary Tract Infections between October and November of 2007. I don't know if this would have anything to do with it. Pregnancy is also not a chance. I'm a 20 year old female looking for an answer. I'm looking to all of you for some assistance before I go to the doctor. I know I should go, but I don't have any insurance. Is something seriously wrong, or am I just run down?
I suggest that you have a repeat urinalysis done just to rule out any known infections and urinary tract stones. Increase in urinary frequency may suggest the presence of an infection. With regards to your anemia , what type of anemia is this?
The urine is clear not cloudy or bloody and I don't have any stinging like I did when I had urinary tract infections in the past. I will be seeing the gyn in three days when she is available but until then what could this be? I'm a 25 year old female with no history of cancer in my family or anything like that.
I wanted to do cranberry capsules but Urologist said no no no ... not unless needed to ward off urinary tract infections in lieu of maintenance antibiotics. So, I feel bad for you and cannot help you with answer to your ? but indeed a good one as it relates to thyroid, etc. "if" I have to go on replacement meds my urologist has to be very involved bcz of the calcium issues .. they (the surgeon) alread will put on kidney panels to my bloodwork while in the hospital.
I went to the health center for anxiety problems and I tested postive for UTI during routine thyroid and diabetes testing. After antibiotics, my stream was faster like it used to be before the infections but it slowed down again a month later, and I noticed that I never felt like I was finished urinating. If I continued to sit on the toilet I could let more urine either trickle or shoot out about every ten seconds. I would think I was done but there was always more.
If there isn't enough thyroid hormone in the cells, these cells are unable to fight off infections from viruses and bacteria, especially those that attack the respiratory system and the urinary tract. Some of these infections are pneumonia, tonsillitis, middle ear infections, bladder infections, and sore throat. It would be very rare indeed for a healthy person to "catch" pneumonia. I would also recommend testing your vitamin D levels.
Pecar said I had acute Bronchitis) * Severe lumbar and upper back and also Hip pain, radiating down to my legs and feet, and most of the time I cannot walk! * Repeated kidney/urinary tract/bladder infections (Tested numerous times and found protein in my urine w/ blood since I was young) * Nerve damage * Pleurisy (happens about once per month- sometimes VERY severe!
Short-term illnesses like urinary-tract infections, gastroenteritis, vomiting, cramping and diarrhea all can lead to these symptoms. Respiratory illnesses like pneumonias, streptococcal infections all can lead to hot and cold flushes. Anxiety, thyroid disorders, hypotension, hypoglyceamia, tuberculosis are other causes. Ant bites should be treated symptomatically. If he is having itching antihistaminic may provide relief, Seek medical help. Do write to us again on how he is doing. Best of luck!
At age 64, I have gone through my whole life without medical problems until I got married (less than two years ago) to a dear, but very messy, disorganized man and have been getting hives, urinary tract infections, and kidney stones ever since. His sister kidded me recently that maybe I am allergic to HIM.... her brother/my husband!
Also If diebetic as I am gases can form in urinary tract because of sugars present . One remidi for the gas is to drink baking soda water, it helps with the gas in both ends ( as it too seems to be more presant if I have rectal gas too. I too have had a completehystorectomy/cervex removed 3 yrs ago.
Now, has he told me certain things just to give the worst-case scenario or is it likely that if I stay on the lithium 20+ years that I will have thyroid issues? And, is it perhaps the effect of lithium on the thyroid that contributes to the weight gain? I know no one really knows, but wouldn't that make sense? It's so obvious that someone had to study and discount it, surely? Or not. Just thinking out loud... *** All - Thanks!
Spayed females had an increased risk for urinary tract stones, urinary tract infections, and urinary tract tumor, but not other causes of FLUTD. Intact females had a decreased risk for most causes.[122] While most cases of FLUTD are treatable and not life-threatening, urinary tract obstruction in males is a very serious condition. This occurred in about 12% of cats with FLUTD symptoms, and the risk is higher in castrated males cats.
Fecal impaction may predispose to urinary tract infections due to the mechanical effects of the distended rectum compressing on the bladder. * A complete blood count can identify patients with anemia such as may be seen in celiac disease, which may uncommonly be associated with constipation. * Serum levels of thyroxine and thyroid stimulating hormone should be obtained if hypothyroidism is a consideration.
