Cystitis - Cystitis diagnosis and Cystitis symptoms

An acute uncomplicated cystitis is an inflammation, an infection of the bladder. It is an infectious disease caused by bacteria (in about 70% of cases caused by Enterobacteriaceae-type Escherichia coli) that go back in the urinary bladder.

Cystitis is often caused by contaminated feces. 10% to 20% of women are affected every year by cystitis, making it a leading cause of medical consultation. Note that 10% of women with cystitis may suffer from recurrent cystitis and in this case, a medical consultation is required.

Cystitis diagnosis and Cystitis symptoms

The symptoms of cystitis are typical, and may be sufficient for diagnosis. Ussualy a test urine with a dipstick is enough for the diagnosis. This can be achieved at your doctor. It may happen that your doctor wants to consider the bacteriological examination of urine, produced in the laboratory, because it allows him to precisely identify the bacteria involved and test the antibiotics that are active on this bacterium. Nine out of ten cases, the bacterium in question is an intestinal bacterium called Escherichia coli (or E. coli). As soon as the strip confirms the diagnosis, one must take active treatment on E. coli.

A person with cystitis always wants to urinate. Urine output is often low. The emission of urine is difficult, and painful and is usually associated with burning sensation felt in urination. Cystitis pain can also be found in the back or lower abdomen. In cystitis it should be noted that sometimes the urine emitts a bad smell. Cystitis is often without serious consequences, but in some cases cystitis can lead to complications, such as the development of kidney infections. In case of suspicious symptoms (like blood in urine), discuss this immediately with your family doctor.
