Can I cure urinary tract infections instead of taking antibiotics?
Hello, I am 34 years old female. Can a urinary tract infection be washed away by drinking a ton of water, no antibiotics? I am afraid of taking medicines. My doctor prescribed me antibiotics and asked me to drink a lot of water. What should I do? Can I cure urinary tract infections instead of taking antibiotics?
@blake Hello, UTIs are among the most common bacterial infections. Antibiotics are the standard treatment for UTIs because they kill the bacteria that cause the infections. Most UTIs develop when bacteria enter the urinary tract from outside the body. Yes, remedies like drinking more water will help you. Water helps the urinary tract organs remove waste from the body efficiently while retaining vital nutrients and electrolytes. Being hydrated also dilutes the urine and speeds its journey through the system, making it harder for bacteria to reach the cells that line urinary organs and cause an infection. You should take antibiotics as it will make the healing process fast. Thank you.
