UNDERSTANDING CYSTITIS

Cystitis is a type of urinary tract infection, or UTI.1 A UTI occurs when bacteria get into the urinary tract and start to multiply.1 This can cause unpleasant and uncomfortable symptoms.1 UTIs are more common in women, but they do also affect men.1

There are 3 common types of UTI, which affect different parts of the urinary tract:1

  • Urethritis: Infection or inflammation of the urethra (the tube that expels urine from the body)
  • Cystitis: Infection in the lower urinary tract, affecting the bladder
  • Pyelonephritis: Infection in the upper urinary tract, affecting the kidneys

Common symptoms of a UTI include:1-3

  • Burning or pain when urinating
  • Feeling the need to urinate frequently and urgently
  • Feeling of fullness in your bladder, even when it’s empty
  • Dark, cloudy and/or strong-smelling urine
  • Pain or discomfort in the lower abdomen

UTIs like cystitis are caused by foreign organisms like bacteria multiplying in the urinary tract.1 Sometimes, bacteria from the digestive tract can be transferred from the anus to the urethra during wiping, causing a UTI to develop.1 Sexual activity can also increase your risk of getting a UTI, because of the transfer of bacteria.1

Hormonal changes (for example in pregnancy and menopause) can also increase your risk of UTIs, and people with weakened immune systems are also more likely to get them.1

It’s important to treat cystitis as quickly as possible, to prevent infection from spreading to the kidneys.1

A SPECIALIST’S EXPERIENCE WITH TREATING CHRONIC CYSTITIS

Dr Anna Surazakova, MD, CEO and Medical Director of the coMra Centre for Restorative Medicine, Technologia Zhizni, Altai, Russia, shares a case report concerning a patient with long-term chronic cystitis:

CASE REPORT: CYSTITIS 5

A 63-year-old man was struggling with these symptoms:

  • Impaired urination
  • Frequent urination at night, with slight pain
  • Pain radiating towards the kidneys, more concentrated on his right side

The patient had struggled with these issues for 3 years. He also had adenoma (a benign tumour) of the prostate. He had been treated for cancer of the rectum 10 years before, with no relapse. He was taking medication under the supervision of his urologist. He had recently treated himself using an acoustic-vibration device, but after this he noticed severe deterioration.

The patient was diagnosed and treated for chronic cystitis in subremission and benign prostatic hypertrophy. He had a series of 10 coMra treatments once daily, while also taking the medications prescribed by his urologist.

The patient noticed the following improvements as a result of the treatment:

  • Pain during urination decreased
  • Volume of urine increased

Dr Surazakova recommended a coMra treatment schedule for the patient to follow over the next few months, to prevent a resurgence of symptoms.
