What Is UTIs And Sepsis?
UTIs are more common in women than men. UTIs are caused when bacteria gets into the urinary system, typically in the bladder and urethra. That can happen due to tight clothing, poor bathroom or post-sex habits, dehydration, or other issues.
They’re more common in women than men due to their shorter urethras, which makes it easier for bacteria to sneak in from the rectum. About one in 5 women experiencing them in their lifetime compared to the 3% of men worldwide who get one each year.
While they don’t always cause symptoms, UTIs can lead to an urge to urinate, a burning sensation when peeing, unusual looking or smelling urine, and pelvic pain.
Sometimes the body flushes the infection out naturally, but other times it needs to be treated with antibiotics and fluids. If not, it can spread to other organs or the blood and become dangerous.
If the body or antibiotics don’t clear the infection, it can spread and become dangerous.
If the infection continues to progress, it becomes sepsis, which is “basically the body’s response to that overwhelming infection where things start not working normally. Organs like the kidneys, liver, and brain start to dysfunction. This can lead to septic shock– a deadly complication in which the organs shut down.
