The Presence Of Bacteria In The Urine?
Hello .. Why hasn’t the bacteria in my urine been gone for 2 months?
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. A urine test is a test that is performed to determine whether there are abnormalities in the urinary tract. Through a urine test, it can be detected if there is blood, leukocytes or white blood cells, bacteria, fungi, or stone-forming crystals. So that through a urine test, disease can be diagnosed:
Urinary tract infection Urinary tract stones Disorders of the kidneys, such as infection or kidney failure
However, the urine test is a supporting examination and should not be reversed in its use. The test supporting its position is to support or support the suspicions that arise after a history and physical examination. Supportive tests can also be used to control the stage of recovery, but supporting tests do not stand alone.
What we want to convey is if at some point you experience a complaint that requires a urine test, such as pain when urinating, pain in the lower abdomen, back pain or so on and bacteria are found, then you will be given antibiotics to eliminate the bacterial infection. But when the complaint is gone and you have done the treatment until it's finished, even though there are still bacteria, you don't need to worry about that. Because in the end, the patient's clinical condition determines, not just the support. So the focus is not taking antibiotics repeatedly until the urine test results are normal, only the overall cure of the disease.
But if you mean bacteria in the urine that don't go away followed by persistent symptoms of the disease, then chances are the antibiotics given are not strong enough or there is another explanation for your condition. Therefore, our advice is to consult your internal medicine doctor again about what your disease is, and to be more sure, you also have the right to ask for a second opinion from another internal medicine doctor.
Meanwhile, keep and maintain your good habits to consume lots of water, also exercise regularly, consume healthy and nutritious foods, maintain genital hygiene and get adequate rest. Avoid taking drugs without a doctor's recommendation. We wish you and your family good health.
That's all, hope it helps.
