The Symptoms

Urinary infections is a common problem and issue that is found more in women who are fasting. This can lead to kidney stones and infections if you do not treat it with time.


UTI infection symptoms

When you urinate it might burn and pain in the lower part of the abdomen are some symptoms when it is at a lower stage. At its higher stage, there can be blood in your urine and pain in your back, from the lower to mid portion. The frequency of this pain could increase over time and reach unbearable levels.

As there is a lack of water, so the bacteria is not flushed out. Because of this, the serious problem happened when bacteria makes its way to the bladder. It can cause several problems there, like constipation. Then if you do not take the precautionary measures bacteria can grow. Because of the humidity and heating bacteria will grow and cause infection in the bladder. Another reason for this infection is uncontrolled diabetes.



Kidney stones

The symptoms of kidney stones include light-headedness, increase in thirst, headache, constipation, skin being dry, dehydration, and dry mouth. You have to care towards the end of Ramadan because those are the days when infection and chances of stones rise.

Commonly we need to drink at least 9 or 10 glasses of water a day. When people do not have enough water intake, which is common because we are fasting all day, it causes stones. The reason is that we do not have water that could dilute the uric acid. This acid is in our urine. So one thing could lead to others and you could end up having kidney stones. Diabetic patients are more likely to be affected by it.


Precautionary measures

The precautionary measure is to be taken by all of us to evade the problems. But for diabetic patients, they have to be more careful and considering. Many people go to the doctor as they are dehydrated. So, this Ramadan follows these tips so that you can beat the heat and stay hydrated. As a result, you will be healthy and enjoy Eid.
