What is the Role of the Urinary Tract?
The urinary tract is an important system responsible for draining the body of urine, which is made up of fluid and waste removed from the bloodstream. Aside from acting as the drainage system, it also regulates your blood pressure and volume. It also controls the number of electrolytes in your body, which determines your hydration levels.
Who Can Get Diabetes?
There are two types of diabetes.
Type 1 diabetes can happen to anyone, but it generally first appears when you are a child. It is a chronic condition where the pancreas makes minimal insulin.
Type two diabetes tends to show up in adults, and it occurs when the body becomes resistant to insulin. Insulin is a necessary part of regular body function as it helps break down glucose so it can enter the cells.
What Are the Signs of a UTI?
Signs of a UTI include:
- Frequent urination
- Bloody urine
- A burning sensation as you urinate
- Urine that appears cloudy
- Strong-smelling urine
When you notice the symptoms of a UTI, it is best to get tested so you can get prescribed medication or start treatment immediately. UTIs can be incredibly uncomfortable, so you will likely want to resolve the issue as quickly as possible.
