Are Urinary Tract Infections Dangerous?
at noon doctor, I want to ask, my sister was diagnosed with a kidney infection, she is a boxing athlete. Was it dangerous for him as an athlete? Because he doesn’t want to stop his activities. Thank you
Hi Dita, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Previously we wanted to correct because maybe you mean a urinary tract infection. The urinary tract does open up to the kidneys as an organ that filters blood and produces urine, but urinary tract infections should not stop a person from any activity as long as he is undergoing treatment properly and recovering completely.
However, with a job as a boxing athlete, what is really worrying is if your sister often gets hit on the waist, which is an area that contains the kidneys, and is also an area that causes pain when there is a urinary tract infection condition. The waist that is continuously exposed to impacts, blows or injuries, because it is not protected by the bones can damage the kidneys and cause serious complications in the future. It's not all like that, there are athletes who until retirement have never had a problem even though their waist has been hit many times, but the risk is clearly increased compared to ordinary people. So if there are symptoms of low back pain, our advice is to immediately consult a doctor.
So, hopefully useful.
