What organisms are generally associated with urinary tract infections(UTI)
Answer: The bacteria most often seen in UTIs are of fecal origin. These organisms are a subset of the organisms found in the feces. Strict anaerobic bacteria rarely cause UTIs. More than 90% of acute UTIs in patients with normal anatomic structure and function are caused by certain strains of E. coli. 10 to 20 percent are caused by coagulase-negative Staphylococcus saprophyticus and 5 percent or less are caused by other enterobacteriaceae organisms or enterococci. In complicated cases of UTI, such as UTI's resulting from anatomic obstructions, or from catheterization the most common causes of UTI are E. coli, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Proteus mirabilis, Enterococcus sp., Pseudomonas aeruginosa. In rare cases Candida albicans can cause UTI (ex. diabetic patients). S. saprophyticus is the second most common cause in young sexually active women.
my baby's urine test came back altered, i'm guessing it is a possible UTI. he has a doctor's appt. on Monday, but in the meantime, does anyone know what causes UTI's in babies? are they harmful? can they be successfully 100% treated and cured?
Answer: What causes a UTI?
UTIs are caused by bacteria (germs) getting into the bladder or the kidneys. The following things can sometimes cause germs to get into the bladder or kidney:
Holding urine for a long time
Girls wiping from back to front (instead of front to back) after a bowel movement
Some children have a condition that keeps their bladder from emptying all the way. These children may have UTIs often.
**also sometimes not having enough fluids can cause the pee to be really concentrated which can cause a UTI
How is a UTI treated?
UTI's are usually treated with antibiotics. The antibiotics kill the germs that cause the UTI. In most cases, antibiotics can be given orally (by mouth). If the infection is severe, the antibiotics may be given in the hospital through a vein. To cure the UTI, your child must take all the medicine exactly as the doctor prescribes.
******It's also important that your child drink enough fluids every day so the urine isn't concentrated.*********
What if my child has UTIs again and again?
You doctor may want to check to see if an anatomical (physical) problem is causing the UTIs. If so, surgery may be needed to fix the problem. Some children with bladder or kidney problems have to take medicine all the time so they won't get another UTI. This medicine is taken once a day.
How can we prevent UTIs?
Here are some things that may help prevent UTIs in your child:
Avoid giving your child bubble baths.
Dress your child in loose-fitting clothing (including underpants).
If you have a girl, teach her to wipe from front to back after she uses the bathroom so that germs from the rectum aren't wiped into the vagina.
Some children don't go to the bathroom often enough. If your child does this, teach him or her to go to the bathroom several times each day.
If you have an uncircumcised boy, teach him how to wash regularly the foreskin on his penis.
How do I know if my child has a UTI?
Your child may have a UTI if he or she has 1 or more of the following symptoms:
Burning or pain when urinating
Frequent urination with only small amounts of urine
Irritable or fussy
Wetting his or her clothes even though he or she is potty trained
Urine that smells bad
and as for cured 100% im not sure id talk to your doctor and ask him/her about that, i think just following the steps above should prevent the UTI's from returning tho. ive never had a UTI before in my life and so far neithor have my kids but talk with your doctor more about the situation and steps to follow, always speak with your doctor before performing anything said on the net.
