What Happens When UTIs Are Untreated

Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are one of the most common infections, which may be why some people think that if they leave them alone, the infection will resolve on its own. This thinking, however, could lead to some very serious health conditions and complications. Learn why it’s important to seek treatment when you have a UTI and avoid unnecessary risks.

Our natural health solution is easy to take and works quickly to eliminate the bacteria in your system that are causing the infection. Contact us today to learn more about how our natural UTI supplement can help you.

 

What Is a UTI?

A UTI is something that about half of all women will experience at some point in their life. A urinary tract infection occurs when germs infect the entire system that carries urine from the body, including the kidneys, bladder, and the tubes that connect these organs. There are three types of urinary tract infections that you might experience — pyelonephritis (kidneys), cystitis (bladder), and urethritis (urethra).

 

Complications From a UTI

While UTIs that are located solely in the bladder might resolve on their own, it’s important to have a professional medical evaluation to determine the type of infection you have. Left untreated, a UTI can pose serious health consequences and complications, including:

  • Recurrent infections, especially in women who experience two or more UTIs in a six-month period.
  • Permanent kidney damage from an acute or chronic kidney infection due to an untreated UTI.
  • Increased risk for pregnant women in delivering low birth weight or premature infants.
  • Sepsis — potentially life-threatening complication of infections.
  • Sepsis — potentially life-threatening complication of infections.

 

Relief from UTIs

The primary danger associated with untreated UTIs is that the infection could spread from the bladder to one or both of the kidneys. When bacteria attack the kidneys, they can cause such severe damage as to permanently reduce kidney function. While small, there is also a chance that the infection can move beyond the kidneys to enter the bloodstream and spread to other organs. Traveling through the body in this way, the infection can become very dangerous, even deadly.

 

Factors That Increase Your Risk of A Serious UTI

There is a limited window of time in which you can try to deal with a UTI on your own by drinking lots of water and/or taking natural supplements. If your symptoms have not gone away completely within 72 hours, you should make an appointment with your doctor and you will likely receive a prescription for an antibiotic to avoid developing a more serious infection.

For those who are monitoring the health of older patients, there are often no traditional symptoms of a UTI, such as the burning sensation. But if you notice that they have suddenly become incoherent or had a change in personality, getting them to a doctor to be tested for a UTI may prevent a trip to the hospital.
