Urinary Retention Can Cause Urinary Infection

The habit of retaining urine can cause diseases. Urinary tract infections are one of the most common febrile illnesses in children after upper respiratory tract infections. Pediatric Nephrology Specialist Assoc. Dr. According to Neşe Bıyıklı, urinary tract infections may occur due to reasons such as constipation, urinary retention, urination disorders or problems with the urinary system. Symptoms of urinary tract infection in children may include fever, vomiting, abdominal pain, urinary incontinence, burning sensation, crying during urination in babies, change in urine color and odor, fatigue, and decreased weight gain in babies. Assoc. Dr. Neşe Bıyıklı also shared ways to protect against urinary tract infections in children. Urinary tract infections require antibiotic treatment. Treatment may be in the form of syrup or injection, depending on the type of microorganism and the clinical condition of the child. It is important to use medications as prescribed by the doctor during the treatment period. Children should not stop treatment early as they begin to feel better, as the infection may recur. Additionally, drinking plenty of water helps treatment by increasing urine flow.

Intense Fluid Intake is Essential to Avoid Urinary Tract Infections

Pediatric Nephrology Specialist Assoc. Dr. Neşe Bıyıklı stated that if there is a suspicion of urinary tract infection in children, a correctly taken urine sample is mandatory for the definitive diagnosis of the disease. Hygiene and drinking plenty of water are of great importance in protecting against urinary tract infections. Drinking water accelerates the flow of urine and helps the bladder empty regularly. It is also necessary to be careful about hygiene. Particular attention should be paid to toilet hygiene for girls. Choosing cotton underwear and not postponing urination are among the recommended hygiene methods. If the infection persists, it is important to check for problems with the kidneys. Urinary tract infections can recur at a rate of 50 to 70 percent in children. Therefore, it is critical to monitor these recurrent infections and identify structural problems in the kidneys when necessary. (BSHA – Science and Health News Agency)
