An-Abuja based physician, Dr. Okezie Emenike, on Tuesday said abnormal sexual activities that irritate the urethra increase the risks of kidney infection. Emenike said this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja.

He explained that “infection that enters through the opening of the urethra can infect the bladder, which can later lead to infection of the kidneys.

Having sex that irritates the urethra can easily allow bacteria to enter the bladder and cause the development of kidney infection.
Anal sex, pregnancy, kidney stones, as well as prolonged use of urinary catheter are also causative factors to a kidney infection.

The physician said bacterium such as E.coli which lived in the bowel of humans was mostly responsible for the development of the infection.

According to Dr. Okezie, Kidney infection occurs when bacteria enters the urinary tract through the tube that carries urine from the body (urethra) and begins to multiply. The medic said bacteria from an infection elsewhere in the body could spread through the bloodstream to the kidneys and lead to infection of the kidneys.

He added that women were most at risk of developing a kidney infection, noting that the urethra of women was closer to the anus, which made it easier for bacteria to enter the urethra.
He attributed weakened immune system due to diabetes type 2, as well as infection of the prostate gland as factors that predisposed one to a kidney infection.

He said any abnormality in the urinary tract, dehydration, as well as constipation could also increase the risk of developing kidney disease.
He added that “certain medications, HIV, and damage to nerves around the bladder also pose a risk of developing kidney infection.’’
Dr. Emenike, however, recommended frequent consumption of water, saying “it helps to remove bacteria from the body through urination.’’

He then stressed the need to always empty the bowel to free the bladder after intercourse, adding that it would help to prevent infections.
He advised women to always wipe carefully from front to back and avoid the use of douching products, including soap in the genital area in order to prevent the condition.

The consumption of cranberry juice is beneficial too in preventing kidney infection, he said.

The physician urged patients with the condition to take the prescribed dose of antibiotics to help treat the infection, saying painkillers such as paracetamol would help to relieve pains.
He, however, advised patients treating kidney infection to avoid the use of Non-Steroid Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs), stressing that such drugs would increase the risk of kidney problems.

Top 6 cause of Kidney Disease

1. Delaying going to a toilet Keeping your urine in your bladder for too long is a bad idea. A full bladder can cause bladder damage. The urine that stays in the bladder multiplies bacteria quickly.
Once the urine refluxes back to the ureter and kidneys, the toxic substances can result in kidney infections, then urinary tract infections, and then nephritis, and even uremia. When nature calls – do it as soon as possible.

2. Eating too much salt, You should eat no more than 5.8 grams of salt daily.

3. Eating too much meat. Too much protein in your diet is harmful to your kidneys. Protein digestion produces ammonia – a toxin that is very destructive to your kidneys. More meat equals more kidney damage.

4. Drinking too much caffeine Caffeine is a component of many sodas and soft drinks. It raises your blood pressure and your kidneys start suffering. So you should cut down the amount of coke you drink daily.

5. Not drinking water. Our kidneys should be hydrated properly to perform their functions well. If we don’t drink enough, the toxins can start accumulating in the blood, as there isn’t enough fluid to drain them through the kidneys. Drink more than 10 glasses of water daily. There is an easy way to check if you are drinking enough water: look at the color of your urine; the lighter the color, the better.

6. Late treatment. Treat all your health problems properly and have your health checked regularly. Let's help ourselves...God will protect you and your family from every disease this year.
