UTI Home Test Kit for Busy Mommies

We, moms, live a fast paced lifestyle. With all the work, house chores and mom-related tasks, we most of the time tend to forget about ourselves.

Our health becomes least of our priorities. And as tipid mommies, we know that medication and hospitalization are some of the biggest factors that drain our budget. As moms, we should be aware and protect ourselves and our family from diseases and sickness we are prone of like UTI (Urinary Tract Infection) for example.

 

Diem

I once suffered from UTI. The burning pain whenever I pee and the pain on my lower pelvis affected my daily routine. I thought only people who have poor hygiene are prone to UTI, but I was wrong because UTI can effect even if you are squaeky clean.

Who are prone to U.T.I?

• Pregnant women

• Those with low-water intake

• Those with recurrent UTI

• Those who are sexually active

• Those with diabetes

• Post-menopausal women

• Those with catheter (a flexible tube inserted through a narrow opening into a body cavity, particularly the bladder, for removing fluid.)

• Men with enlarged prostate

 

So by being a coffee-holic (not drinking enough water), married (sexually active) and having a history of UTI before, I am also prone to this infection.

Here are some of the common symptoms of UTI.

When you think, you have some of the symptoms above.. why should we take UTI as a serious infection? What are the effects of UTI in our organs if remain untreated?

• To our bladder, urinary tract infection can be painful and annoying and can lead to bladder inflammation or cystitis.

• To our kidneys, untreated urinary tract infection can lead to pyelonephritis that could permanently damage the kidney.

• To our urethra, a urinary tract infection can lead to urethritis that could cause the urethra to produce blood in the urine and seriously affect the tube that carries the urine form the body.

 

So better check today, because “prevention is always better than cure”
