Avatar n tn Hi, welcome to the forum, yes, kidney infection can be related to the pyelonephritis. Urinary tract infection can be due to infection involving any part from kidney to urethra.

Avatar f tn I have a question for those of you with urinary tract problems. I have had several UTIs and seem to be retaining urine. Also, my bladder and kidneys hurt. As many of you know, I do have Lupus. The question I have is should I be going to a urologist? I have talked to my GP about this and I have even mentioned being tested for Lupus Nephritis, but he just tells me that anytime he has checked my kidneys they have been fine.

Similarly, urinary tract infection occurs without stone formation too. Hence important is to treat accompanied infection and enlarged prostrate.

Avatar f tn My doc/midwife just diagnosed me with a urinary tract infection :( and now I'm a little worried about pre-term labor, i guess my question would be has anyone been diagnosed with same thing, if so what was your experience?
Avatar n tn A urinalysis, urine culture, kidney, ureter and bladder scans may help rule out an infection or urinary tract stones. Kidney stones leading to kidney infections may lead to fever, nausea and vomiting. I suggest you seek immediate consult since you may need oral medications. Do keep us posted.
Avatar m tn Sounds like kidney or urinary tract infection. Call doc, see if you bring in a urine sample. If it is an infection, only antibiotics will help, nothing over the counter unfortunately - but believe me I love my heating pad. I even bring it with in the car with a power converter. I've had several kidney issues, and now am recovering from surgery for nutcracker syndrome and pelvic congestion syndrome (found both in men and women). Good Luck.
Avatar n tn Hi, The burning that you experience can be the result of a urinary tract infection. Do you also experience an unrgency? You should be consulting with a doctor. If not treated a urinary tract infection can lead to more serious things. One result of a U.T.I. could be a kidney infection if it is not treated. I have had it several times and ended up hospitalized for about a week at a time being on several different antibiotics through an IV. Please don't wait, get it checked as soon as possible?
Avatar n tn It sounds like you may have a urinary tract infection - check in with your doctor and possibly see a urologist.
Avatar n tn As your symptoms suggest of burning sensation while passing urine, it is more commonly due to urinary tract infections and sexually transmitted diseases. Because kidney and ureter stones are accompanied by pain that goes upto the loin. There could also be changes in the stream of urine. Is this the first time you are having this? Or previously suffered from same kind of symptoms? In any case it is advised to get a urine examination done and an ultrasound.

Avatar m tn Sounds like a urinary tract infection. Might need to see a physician to get an antibiotic to treat it. Blood is not normal either. Kidney stones might cause similar symptoms too. Keep well hydrated and add the old standard cranverry juice too! Good luck and don't delay too long in seeing a physician. Emergency clinics might be an answer if you don't have a regular family doc.
Avatar f tn Microscopic hematuria can be due to urinary tract (bladder) infection, swelling in the filtering system of the kidneys ,stone in bladder or in a kidney, blood disease, like sickle cell anemia, certain medicines and tumors in the urinary tract. I suggest you to consult a urologist for your father and get done an ultrasound abdomen to look for any kidney stone and blood tests for sickle cell anemia. I hope it helps. Take care and please do keep us posted on how you are doing. Kind regards.
Avatar f tn Do you have an abscess in kidney detected by CT scan or ultrasound or is it that you have a urinary tract infection and want to know the treatment. Kidney stones too can cause infection of urine. Kidney abscess is a serious problem. Any infection of the urinary system is treated with antibiotics, pain medications and fluids. However it is not something that can be treated at home. There are various tests like urine examination, ultrasound or CT scan that need to be done to diagnose.
Avatar f tn Urinalysis and urine culture are definitive diagnosis of a urinary tract infection. This may respond well to antibiotic management. The choice of drug and length of treatment depend on your medical history and the urine tests that identify the offending bacteria. Many doctors prescribe antibiotics for a week or two to ensure that the infection has been cured. Other tests such as intravenous pyelogram may also be indicated. Take care and do keep us posted.
Avatar f tn m pregnant, I have to go back after delivery for a series of x-rays to make sure my stone is gone. Cranberry juice is also very good for kidney/urinary tract health because it creates a slippery coating on the walls of the urinary organs & doesn't allow bacteria to build up which prevents infection.
Avatar f tn In children without urinary tract infections 17.2-18.5% have VUR, whereas in those with urinary tract infections the incidence may be as high as 70% Age Younger children are more prone to VUR because of the relative shortness of the submucosal ureters. This susceptibility decreases with age as the length of the ureters increases as the children grow. In children under the age of 1 year with a urinary tract infection, 70% will have VUR. This number decreases to 15% by the age of 12.
