Urinary Tract and Kidney Health

The Urinary System, Renal System or Urinary Tract plays a crucial role in keeping our body healthy and free from toxins and unwanted fluids.

Two kidneys, the urethers, urinary bladder and the urethra constitute the urinary system. All the blood in our body is filtered through the kidneys and the waste matter, toxins and excess water is filtered out. The waste liquid is then transported from the kidneys to the urinary bladder through thin muscular tubes called ureters. This waste liquid or urine collects in the bladder till it is passed out the body through the urethra during urination.
The Urinary Tract is susceptible to a large number of dysfunctions and ailments. Although the symptoms of urinary system problems differ depending on the ailment there are some common indications :
  • Any change in the amount, frequency, colour and smell of urine.
  • Pain and burning sensation during urination.
  • The urge to urinate all the time even though there is very little urine which is passed each time.
  • Fever which does not subside after 4-5 days.
  • Blood in the urine.
  • Swelling or oedema in the body. Swelling on your face, hands, feet ankles.
  • Weakness, extreme fatigue, dizziness and nausea and vomiting, shortness of breath.
  • Pain in the sides or lower back.
  • Severe skin rashes, metallic taste in the mouth.

A common ailment which affects the Urinary System is UTI - Urinary Tract Infection. It is also known as Acute Cystisis or Bladder Infection. It occurs when the bladder and urethra get infected by e-coli bacteria causing inflammation and irritation. UTI affects both men and women, though it occurs more in women. More than half of the women would have had UTI at least once in their lives .

There can be various causes for UTI.

  • In women, the anus is much closer to the urethra opening. This increases the chances of bacteria entering the urinary tract substantially.
    During menopause the lining of a woman's urethra gets thinner and the and the chances of infection increases.
  • If the bladder is not emptied completely the chances of infection increases in the bladder. This is especially common in pregnant women and in men with enlarged prostrate or BPH.
  • Urinary Tract Infections can be detected by doing a Routine Urine Test and a Urine Culture Test. UTI is treated with the help of anti-biotics. The patient must drink plenty of fluids to flush out the infection.
  • Urinary Incontinence or UI is the loss of bladder control or involuntary leakage or release of urine. Incontinence is more common in women than in men, especially older women. Urinary incontinence may be categorised as:

    • stress incontinence - i.e - brought on by a sudden exertion like coughing , sneezing etc.
    • urge incontinence - an unexpected leakage when the bladder is full when you have a sudden urge to urinate
    • overflow incontinence- when the bladder does not empty completely. this is less common in women and occurs mostly in men with enlarged prostrate
    • transitional incontinence - which is temporary and may be due to an illness or physical condition such as pregnancy or infection and goes away after the condition has passed

    Incontinence is caused by problems in the muscles and the nerves that help to hold or pass urine. During pregnancy there is pressure on the bladder and pelvic floor which may lead to leakage and problems in passing urine. Labour during childbirth also weakens the pelvic floor and many women may experience incontinence for a while till the muscles heal and get back in shape.

    The loss of estrogen in a woman's body after menopause also reduces the strength of the urethral muscles. Treatment for incontinence varies. In some cases medication is helpful and some may require surgery. For those suffering from incontinence due to menopause, an estrogen supplement proves to be helpful.
