    Common Causes of Urinary Tract Inflammation

    Urine color

    The color of the urine can tell a lot, including a urinary tract infection.  If this color is anything other than yellow or transparent, it is a sign of concern.  Red or brown is a sign of infection, but first check that you have not eaten any food that is pink, orange or red in color.

    Extreme fatigue

    Inflammation of the urinary tract is actually caused by an infection of the bladder. In any case, as a result of the infection, when the body realizes that something is going wrong, it starts to swell.

    Fever, along with other symptoms, often indicates an increase in the severity of inflammation in the urinary tract and the spread of the infection to the kidneys.  If you have a fever of more than 101 Fahrenheit or feel cold or your body gets drenched in sweat while sleeping at night, you should seek medical help immediately. Common Causes of Urinary Tract Inflammation

    Inflammation of the urethra is a very painful disease and many people are hesitant to talk about it.

    There is also a risk of kidney infection as a result of this infection or inflammation and its symptoms usually appear in the form of severe burning and pain in the urine, while frequent urge to urinate, discoloration.  And there may be a fever, which rises in serious cases.

    Bleeding and foul-smelling urine are also symptoms.

    If left untreated or undiagnosed, the disease can spread from the bladder to the kidneys and cause inflammation of the kidneys, which can be fatal.

    By the way, there are some reasons for this which are difficult to control such as aging, women are more at risk than men, pregnancy, kidney stones, diabetes and Alzheimer’s disease etc.

    But there are also some lifestyle habits that increase the risk of the disease.

    Don’t take care of cleanliness

    In fact, poor hygiene can lead to an increase in the number of these bacteria, which in turn increases the risk of inflammation of the urinary tract.

    Drink less water

    A study by Noor Health Life found that the habit of drinking more water reduces the risk of urinary tract inflammation, especially for women.  According to research, the easiest and safest way to avoid this painful disease is to prevent infection and drinking one liter more water than usual helps to prevent this disease.  According to research, women have a higher risk of this disease than men, but men should also take this precaution.  He said that drinking more water makes it easier to get rid of the bacteria that accumulate in the bladder and they do not accumulate which causes the disease.

    Use tight clothing

    Frequent use of tight clothing can lead to painful diseases such as inflammation or infection of the urinary tract. Research has shown that rain and moisture in rainy or monsoon seasons increase the growth of germs and make them tight  The use of clothing increases the risk of inflammation of the urethra.

    Urinary retention

    Due to some work, be it cheap or whatever the reason, every one of us is a person who stops urinating and it is not a bad thing but unless we start doing it too much or get into the habit.  Make up  If such a habit is formed, it can lead to very serious problems.  Doing so increases the growth of harmful bacteria, which in turn increases the risk of inflammation of the urinary tract.

   The bladder and urinary tract pressure measurement (VCUG) during urination has a special yeast that will use x-rays to show what happens when your baby urinates.

   Urinary system (female)

   VCUG stands for “widening cysto-retrogram”) which means to urinate.  “Cysto” is for the bladder.  “Urethro” is for urethra, the tube that drains urine from the bladder.  “Gram” means picture.  Therefore, VCUG is a picture of urinary excretion from the bladder through the urethra.

   The test uses a special type of moisture called contrast medium to better reflect the urine in the X-ray.

   Get your child ready for the test

   Take the time to read this information carefully and explain it to your child.  Children who know what to expect are less likely to be anxious.  Tell your child about the test in words he or she understands, along with the words your family uses to understand how the body works.

   As part of the test, a small tube called a catheter will be inserted into your baby’s urethra.  It will be painful to insert the catheter.  But if your baby stays calm, it will be more comfortable to wear.  You can teach your child to calm down by taking deep breaths.  Ask your child to copy birthday candles, inflate balloons or release bubbles.  Do this breathing exercise at home before coming to the hospital.

   Adolescents sometimes bring something comfortable to grab during tests.  Your child can bring a cotton toy or a blanket from home.

   One of the parents can be with the child at any time during the test.  If you are pregnant, you can stay in the room until the catheter is inserted.  But you must leave the room during the baby’s X-ray.

   You need to tell your child that a doctor or technologist can touch his or her private parts to clean them and put tubes in them.  Tell your child that you have allowed them to touch because the test will help.

   The tests will be performed by two technologists

   Technologists specialize in catheter implants and X-rays.  Sometimes a radiologist must be in the room during the test.  The radiologist reads the X-rays.

   Urinary system (male)


   The X-ray technologist will prepare your child for the test by telling him what will happen during that time.  The radiologist will clean the area where your baby’s penis or urethra goes.  The technologist will then insert the flexible tube into the open space.  A catheter is a long, thin, soft, smooth tube that passes through the urethra into the bladder.  Technologists will explain this at every turn, as they do.

   If your child has a heart condition

   Your child may need to take antibiotics before having any tests.  For example, children with a heart condition need to take antibiotics before going to the dentist.  An antibiotic is a medicine that kills an infection.  If your child needs this medicine, please tell the doctor who is prescribing VCUG to your child.  The doctor will get this medicine before giving your child a VCUG.

   VCUGs are usually performed in a hospital

   The pressure inside the bladder and urethra during urination is detected by the Department of Diagnostic Imaging.  It is often called the X-ray department.  If you do not know the location of this department, find out from the main reception.

   This inspection lasts 20 to 30 minutes.  After the test you will have to stay in this area for about 15 minutes until the sketches are ready.

   During the test

   When you enter the Diagnostic Imaging Department, your child will be placed in a single changing room, wearing a hospital gown.  Your baby will then be taken to the X-ray room.  Only one parent will be able to go with the child.

   In the X-ray room

   Once you and your baby are in the X-ray room, the technologist will ask you to take off your baby’s underwear diaper.  Then your baby will lie down on the X-ray table.  A protective bandage can be applied to your baby’s abdomen or legs to make sure your baby is safe.

   The camera on the table will take pictures.  The technologist will use a television screen to see what is happening during the test.

   When the technologist is doing X-rays, your child needs to be as still as possible to get the best results.  You can hold your baby’s hands slightly up to your chest so that you can distract the baby in any direction.  For example, you can sing a poem or a song.

   Catheter fitting

   The X-ray technologist will begin the test by clearing your child’s hidden areas and inserting a tube.  The catheter will empty the bladder on its own.

   The catheter will then be attached to a bottle with a contrast medium.  This contrast will flow through the medium tube into the bladder.  This will allow the technologist to observe better inside the bladder and urethra.  Your baby will be able to feel the contrast as he passes through the bladder.  It may feel cold but it will not hurt.

   The X-ray technologist will take some X-rays when the contrast medium is flowing inside the bladder.  When your baby’s bladder is full, your baby will be asked to urinate in a bed pan or diaper.  The catheter will come out easily as soon as your baby urinates.  The technologist will take some X-rays while your child is urinating.  These are the most important pictures of the test.

   After the test

   X-ray technologists will tell you how to get to the changing room so that the baby can put on his clothes.  Then you sit in the waiting room.  After checking the X-ray sketches, the technologist will tell you when you can go.

   If you have an appointment at the clinic to see a doctor after the test, tell the technologist.  They will make sure that your results are sent to the clinic.  If you do not see a doctor after the test, the results will be sent to your child’s doctor within a week.

   Give your child lots of liquids at home

   Sometime after the test, your child may feel some discomfort, such as burning sensation when urinating.  Give your child plenty of fluids to drink over the next day or two, such as water or apple juice.  Drinking alcohol will help your child if he has any problems.

   If you have any questions about the effects of QuoteTest, please check with the Technologist.  If your child is restless for more than 24 hours, call your family doctor.

   Key points

   (VCUG) is a test that uses x-rays to find out what happens when your baby urinates.

   During the test, the baby’s urethra will be inserted into his urethra.
