hi,

This is with regard to a problem for my wife(30yrs), while urinating there were some blood stains found, and was having a slight pain in the lowere abdomins
and we went to hospital and had undergone ultra sound scan , and didnt find any abnormalities, post which urine test was done and in the result it was found that PH is 8 where ideal was to be 7, and the Red blood cells were also found (mentioned as found in large nos) in the result. Post which doctor said that there is no problem any found as per the results, and given couple of medicines and also told to do a urine culture, for which result is yet to come,

I would like to know the possible causes for such disease

Hi XXXXXXX
Thanks for posting your query.
I am Dr.Ratnakar Kini and I am pleased to answer your query.

The causes of lower abdominal pain, blood in urine and high pH include Sometimes pain and blood in urine could be due to stones in the urinary tract and diseases involving the kidneys. Since ultrasound scan of the abdomen was normal, stone disease is less likely but cannot be completely ruled out as smaller stones can pass in the urine.
Urine culture sensitivity can show if there is infection and if so what organism is causing it and to which antibiotic it is sensitive.
I hope that answers your question.

Hi Dr

The tests there have confirmed that its not due to stone, and she also didnt had a past with the urinary infection neither stone problem


from the urine culture test , the presence of escherichia coli was found in large nos, however dr has prescribed for medicine to have for a week and then adviced retest the urine after 14 days

I would like to know the reasons that would have caused for this as well as how harmful it is and the what are the precautions that are to be taken

Hi,
Urinary tract infection is very common in women.
Some of the common risk factors of UTI are diabetes mellitus, frequent sex, catheterization of the urinary tract ( during hospitalization), using diaphragms and spermicides for contraception, improper hygiene methods after bowel movements etc..

Complicated and recurrect UTI can affect the kidneys.
Drinking plenty of water, urinating after sex, good hygiene methods after bowel movements, controlling blood glucose if diabetes is diagnosed are some of the methods to prevent UTI.
I hope that answers your question.
