For the past few days, I felt sharp pains on the left side below my belly button. I was afraid to have my check done. I though it was kidney failure or something like Mesothelioma. However, my blogger friends convinced me to go to the clinic for a check up. So I did. I was diagnosed with UTI or urinary tract infection (UTI). UTI is a bacterial infection that affects any part of the urinary tract.
The doctor said that most uncomplicated UTIs can be treated with oral antibiotics such as trimethoprim, cephalosporins, nitrofurantoin, or a fluoroquinolone. Also I was advised not to delay urination when it is necessary. Drinking lots of water, cranberry juice or buko juice.
