Urinary tract infection is also a condition related to the lower urinary tract and is useful in cleaning the system. As the urinary system consists of two kidneys, two ureters, a urethra, and a bladder which helps in removing waste in the form of urine which is important for filtering waste from the bloodstream. Due to its function, it is at risk of developing different kinds of infection including the Klebsiella UTI which is the second most common Urinary Tract Infection. Today, through this article we are going to discuss Klebsiella Urinary tract infection in detail and its treatment through Ayurvedic medicine.
Urinary tract infection is very commonly seen in women due to the length of the urethra as they are shorter as compared to men. According to some studies, it is proven that 3% of women around the age of 20 suffer from urinary tract infections and 50% of them suffer from infections after the age of 20 or during their adult life. In males the Klebsiella Urinary tract is very uncommon, however, they can suffer from it after the age of 60 years. In daily life, the E.coli is ingested or derived from the fecal reservoir, staphylococcus or streptococcus epidermis. Klebsiella is one of the reasons for infection in the hospital but still, E.coli is considered more.
