Definition: Most urinary disorders are characterised by urinary tract infections. These infections emanate as a result of the growth of bacteria which can affect this part of the body. The Escherichia Coli is the primary etiologic agent that affects this part of the urinary tract. When bacteria enter the bladder or kidney, it begins to accumulate in the salts, fluids and waste of this area, which may cause it multiply, causing an infection.
Acute cystitis and Pyelonephritis: This is known as one of the most common forms of bladder infection or disorder while Pyelonephritis is a severe kind of ailment. The constant need to urinate, and pain or burning sensation during urination are the most common symptoms experiences for both types of disorders.
