What Are Urinary Tract Infections- UTI

Urinary Tract Infections are also known as UTI. Once contracted, UTI’s can be very resistant & difficult to cure completely. As per worldwide data available UTI’s are common in both men & women. However, the prevalence of UTI’s is more in women in comparison to men as the female anatomy of the urinary system makes them prone to these infections. It is seen that almost 150 million cases of Urinary Infections occur every year worldwide which is massive. It is also seen that almost 50% women do experience Urinary Tract Infections (UTI) in their lifetime.

UTI is characterized by extreme discomfort & burning sensation while urinating or strong urge to urinate but inability to urinate & even severe irritation or pain in the urinary area which can cause great and at times unbearable discomfort. The act of urinating can be compared to urinating fire or acid at times which is very difficult to bear. It can also be associated with smelly & frothy urine.

Causes Of Urinary Tract Infections – UTI

It has been generally observed that UTIs occur in men as a Sexually Transmitted Disease also known as STD. The reason could be unprotected sexual contact with an infected partner or anal sex.


However, the main reason for UTI in females is the anatomical structure of the female urinary system. The distance between the urinary opening & the bladder is shorter in females unlike males. Moreover as the distance between the vaginal opening & the rectal opening in females are close by, this makes women very prone to Urinary Infections (UTI). Also, sexually active women are seen to be more prone to getting UTIs rather than those who are not as sexually active. Poor maintenance and sanitation of the Urinary area is also a common reason for frequent UTI. However, these factors are not permanent and there can be several other reasons for UTIs as well.

The most common pathogen or bacteria responsible for UTIs in both Men & Women is E.Coli also known as Escherichia Coli. Once the bacteria enter & gets into the urinary tract, it spreads very fast reaching the bladder soon and leading to several Urinary Tract related Infections along with a host of other problems, which can reach right up to the kidneys in extreme cases. Terrifying, isn’t it?

Treating Urinary Tract Infections


Unable to bear all this urinary discomfort, patients take consultation from their doctors or gynecologist who generally suggests a Culture & sensitivity test on the patient’s urine sample, to find out the main culprit bacteria or microorganism, causing the problem & decide the antibiotic which will be most suitable, potent & effective against this microorganism.


The Culture & Sensitivity (C&S) tests generally take around 72 hours (3 Days) for the report to come, with a clear picture on the main bacteria responsible for the UTI in the patient. Based on the report, the doctor decides upon the best & most suitable treatment plan & the antibiotic which will be most effective against the responsible bacteria and is expected to give the best result for relief form the condition that the patient is in. The antibiotic course generally lasts for 5 to 7 days. The patient starts getting relief from the 3rd day onwards and is generally symptom free by 5 to 7 days.

Problems With Treating Urinary Tract Infections


While UTI and its symptoms settle down within 5 to 7 days, however Urinary Tract Infections are very difficult to cure permanently. As per data available, 50% of women who encounter UTIs suffer relapse with this problem again and again. The main reason for this relapse is that the villain pathogen or bacteria responsible for UTI, which is E Coli, has great survival instincts. It is very smart and keeps evolving from time to time getting more difficult to treat every time.


E Coli has a great capability to adapt and develop resistance to the drug or antibiotic used to counter it. This condition & situation is known as ‘Drug Resistance’. In this condition the same medicine prescribed by your doctor earlier may not necessarily work the next time as well. So when a patient has a relapse of UTI he or she may require a completely different antibiotic to control the infection and its symptoms.


Relapse with UTI are very common. Recurrent laboratory tests, repeated use of strong antibiotics along with their side effects and the inability of antibiotics to offer a permanent cure are a reason for great difficulty and frustration in many patients suffering from Urinary Tract Infections.


Many patients of UTI accept this as a way of life as they seem to find no permanent or long-term cure for their condition. The thought that comes to the sufferer’s mind many a times is, ‘Is there some other way to treat UTI without antibiotics or in a natural way?

Cranberry today is commonly available in the form of juice, tablets & capsules. While the most commonly form of Cranberry is juice, however one limitation with cranberry Juice is that it is very low in its content of Proanthocyanidins’ (PAC) and therefore not suitable or effective enough to provide relief or control of UTI.
