for Kidney Infection Symptoms
kidney infections or bladder infections are present, the symptoms
will usually be low back pain that is poorly localized. A urine
test can be done by the doctor, however a simple at home test
to identify kidney infection symptoms vs. bladder infection
symptoms is to have someone (or yourself) lightly "tap" (with
a closed fist) on either side of the spine below the rib cage.
If a sharp shooting pain can be felt that "shoots" toward the
front of the body, it is very possible your kidney is involved.
A urine test is necessary to diagnose an infection or indicate
whether another problem may exist confirming bladder problems
such as bladder stones, however it can not diagnose kidney cancer.
When protein or blood is found in your urine test, it may indicate
kidney infections, kidney cancer or possibly bladder problems
such as bladder stones or bladder tumors. It is common for a
person to have no symptoms of bladder cancer and still have
bladder tumors present. Kidney cancer symptoms however include
pain and a mass that can be felt indicating kidney tumors may
be present. Kidney disease symptoms such as pain or pressure
are also very common with kidney infections due to inflammation.
infections are most common in women and are usually bacterial
in nature. A kidney infection is typically considered more serious
than a bladder infection and symptoms of bladder infection are
very similar to kidney infection symptoms. Kidney infection
symptoms may include frequency of urination with burning, and
pain in the low back. Fever is also a common symptom however
not usually present at the start of the infection. A urine test
to diagnose kidney infections will usually show blood, protein,
and white blood cells in the urine. The urinary tract is divided
into an upper and lower area due to the location of the primary
organs, the bladder and the kidneys. It is common for a lower
urinary bladder infection to move up the ureters and enter the
kidneys causing a kidney infection if not treated.
cancer is most common in older adults over forty. Men are twice
as likely to get kidney cancer than women. The majority of kidney
cancer tumors (85%) are primary meaning the cancer began in
the kidneys. Usually a mass is noticed by the person, pain is
experienced and blood is found on the urine test. Other kidney
disease symptoms of cancer may include fever, swelling in the
legs, nausea and weight loss.
infections are most common in women and are usually bacterial
in nature. The primary causes of bladder infection symptoms
include sexual intercourse, pregnancy, and medical instrumentation.
Bladder infections will commonly produce frequency of urination
with burning, and may also include fever with pain in the lower
abdomen. A simple urine test can diagnose this condition by
showing white blood cells in the urine. A common natural bladder
infection treatment to help rid the urinary tract of bacteria
is to change the pH of the urine to be more acidic. A simple
way to do this is to drink a diluted mixture of raw apple cider
vinegar on a daily schedule when bladder infection symptoms
medical term for a kidney stone in the urinary tract is urinary
tract calculi, or just uroithiasis. Kidney stones are most common
in men 30-50 years of age. 70% of kidney stones are composed
of calcium, which can indicate an overactive parathyroid gland,
cancer that has spread to the bone, kidney disease, excessive
intake of decaffeinated coffee, or overdose of ascorbic acid
(synthetic vitamin C). Kidney stones can also be caused from
an intake of calcium carbonate vitamins (i.e. coral calcium)
as is found in most antacid tablets. Dehydration will increase
the risk of kidney stones. 15% of kidney stones are made of
a mixture of calcium phosphate and magnesium, and are caused
from urinary tract infections. 10% of kidney stones are made
of uric acid and are common in gout patients (high uric acid
deposits in the tissues).
cancer tumors develop from the cell lining of the bladder 90%
of the time. Men over 50 are at highest risk of bladder cancer
especially those that work with chemicals in densely populated
industrial areas such as petroleum workers and spray painters.
In early stages, 25% will show no bladder cancer symptoms. These
symptoms include blood in the urine with clots and pain after
urination. Other symptoms of bladder cancer include bladder
irritability, bladder pain, frequency of urination, night urination,
and dribbling. Surgery is a common medical treatment for bladder
cancer which is diagnosed only by a histological tissue study
such as with a biopsy.
pain is located from just below the middle of the rib cage in
the front, around to the back and deep in the abdomen as low
as the pubic area. Pain can range from a constant dull pain
to an excruciating sharp pain that fluctuates. Nausea and vomiting
usually accompany severe pain. Other associated symptoms include
fever, chills, blood noticed in the urine, swelling of the abdomen,
pus in the urine, and a rare obstruction of urine output producing
a bursting bladder symptom. A diagnosis is based on symptoms,
urine tests, an ultrasound, or mostly commonly by X-ray. 90%
of kidney stones can be passed and eliminated in the urine unless
the stone is too large, surgery may be necessary.
