Published at : 02-09-2019 View : 6981

      Cystitis is also known as Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs), and it is defined as the presence of microorganisms in the urine that cannot be accounted for by contamination. The infections of Cystitis represent a wide variety of syndromes.

CAUSES OF CYSTITIS

  There are many possible causes of cystitis and most are infectious. The majority of these cases stem from ascending infection and the bacteria can enter from the external genitourinary structures.

  Causes include:

  Interstitial cystitis: it is sometimes called painful bladder syndrome, which refers to long-term inflammation of your bladder. Sometimes it's much more common in women, but can affect men, too.

  Foreign-body cystitis: using a catheter in your urethra for a long period can introduce infectious bacteria into your urethra or damage urethral tissue, this makes you more prone to infection.

  Chemical cystitis: exposure to certain chemicals in everyday products, such as heavily fragranced soaps or shampoos that can result in allergic reactions that cause inflammation.

  Drug-induced cystitis: your urinary system helps to flush out toxins and other unwanted substances, while the filtered remains of some medications as they leave your body can inflame your bladder.

  Radiation cystitis: radiation therapy in your pelvic region can also cause bladder inflammation.

 

 

RISK FACTORS OF CYSTITIS

  Risk factors for Cystitis or Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs) include:

  Recent urinary procedure - Urinary surgery or an exam of your urinary tract that involves medical instruments can both increase your risk of developing a urinary tract infection.

  Suppressed immune system - Diabetes and other diseases that impair the immune system the body's defense against germs can increase the risk of Cystitis.

  Urinary tract abnormalities - Babies born with urinary tract abnormalities that don't allow urine to leave the body normally or cause urine to back up in the urethra have an increased risk of Cystitis.

  Blockages in the urinary tract - Kidney stones or an enlarged prostate can trap urine in the bladder and increase the risk of Cystitis.

  Catheter use - People who can't urinate on their own and use a tube (catheter) to urinate have an increased risk of Cystitis. This may include people who are hospitalized, people with neurological problems that make it difficult to control their ability to urinate and people who are paralyzed.

  Most Cystitis risk factors for men are the same as those for women; however, having an enlarged prostate is one risk factor for a Cystitis that’s unique to men

DIAGNOSIS FOR CYSTITIS

  The effective way to get rid your Cystitis is talk to our doctor at Heng Kang clinic. Our doctor can diagnose a Cystitis or UTI by carrying out a physical examination, taking a medical history, and through laboratory tests. Tests and procedures used to diagnose urinary tract infections include:

  Physical examination

  Our doctor may perform a physical examination that includes checking the vital signs, checking the abdomen, bladder area, sides, and back for pain or swelling and examining the genitals.

  Medical history

  Our doctor may ask if the person has had other Cystitis in the past, or a family history of Cystitis.

  Analyzing a urine sample

  Our doctor may ask for a urine sample for lab analysis to look for white blood cells, red blood cells or bacteria. To avoid potential contamination of the sample, you may be instructed to first wipe your genital area with an antiseptic pad and to collect the urine midstream.
