Kidney Infection


First off, kidney infection should not be confused with cystitis, which is a bladder infection. An infection of the kidneys is a much more serious condition.


It's medical name is 'pyelonephritis' and if not treated promptly, usually with antibiotics, it can lead to even more serious health issues, such as septicaemia (blood poisoning).


It's caused by bacteria -- often E. coli -- entering the urethra (the tube through which urine is passed out of the body) and travelling up through the bladder and ureters to the kidneys. But in the majority of cases only one kidney is involved.

It is much more common in women than men because their urethra is shorter than mens'. Also, the vagina is very close to the anus so that bacteria can more easily reach the urethra. And younger women are even more at risk since they are generally more sexually active.


Kidney infection symptoms often suddenly develop as an acute kidney infection which responds to treatment. But some people suffer from long standing chronic infections which are more difficult to treat.


Now here's a list of the most common kidney infection symptoms...
