What is a kidney infection? 

Kidney infection is usually caused by bacteria that spread from the urinary tract, including the uterus, bladder and urethra. It is basically a Urinary Tract Infection that can eventually spread to one or both of the kidneys. A kidney infection requires immediate medical attention and treatments because failure to do so can lead to permanent kidney damage and life-threatening conditions. It is also known as pyelonephritis and can either be sudden or chronic. 

What causes kidney infection? 

There are multiple cases when bacteria from a part of your body can enter the kidney and set off a kidney infection. The bacteria can enter the urethra and multiply to spread to the kidney. It can also flow in the bloodstream from a site of infection and find its way to the kidney. 

Kidney infection is also a likely outcome post kidney surgery. 

Along with these, there are many factors that can increase a person’s risk of developing a kidney infection. For example, women are more likely to be affected since they have a shorter urethra than men, meaning that the bacteria can travel up to the kidney more easily. Other factors like being pregnant, having a weakened immune system and having a urinary tract blockage can also trigger an infection in the kidney. 

How can someone know if they have a kidney infection? 

There are certain signs and symptoms that can help detect kidney infection. They include: 

  • Nausea 

  • Vomiting 

  • Fever and chills 

  • Blood in urine 

  • Burning sensation while urinating 

  • Cloudy or foamy, smelly urine 

  • Pain in the abdominal region 

  • Frequent urination 

What are the treatment options available for kidney infection? 

The first step in the process of treatment is the proper diagnosis of the bacteria that has caused the kidney infection. The doctor might recommend a blood test, urine test, and imaging tests like X-ray and Ultrasound for this purpose. 

Kidney infection is usually treated with antibiotics, depending on the type of bacteria, intensity of infection, and overall health of the patient. If the condition turns serious, the patient can be admitted into the hospital to receive intensive care. 

What kind of doctors treat kidney infections? 

A nephrologist is a doctor who specializes in treating diseases and conditions of the kidneys. A kidney infection can also be treated by a Urologist, as the bacteria first affects the urinary system before the kidneys.
