As women, drinking additionally 1.5 liters of water on a daily basis can help in reducing bladder infections –especially in premenopausal women by around 50%. This has been observed by a recent study led by Dr. Yair Lotan –Professor of Urology at the Simmons Cancer Center.
Under the impact of the controlled trials, women who had the habit of drinking of additional around 1.5 liters of water on a daily basis reflect around 48 percent fewer cases of repeated bladder infections in comparison to those who consumed lesser amounts than the desired volume of daily water intake. Women drinking more water turned out to be healthy in the long run. Reduced bladed infections can also help to prevent several diseases.
Dr. Lotan states that there stands a significant difference in the overall health of women who consumed more water daily. The given findings prove beneficial as more than half of the women’s population around the world report bladder infections –one of the most common infections in women.
The physicians in the given finding suggest that increased fluid intake can help in reducing bacteria growth. Moreover, it also helps in limiting the ability of bacteria to attach itself to the bladder and cause infections. The common symptoms that are associated with uncomplicated cystitis –a common UTI (Urinary Tract Infection) are difficult or pain during urination, the feeling of the full urinary bladder, increased frequency or urgency of urination, possibly blood in the urine, and mild tenderness towards the lower abdominal area.
As most of the cases of bladder infections in women are treated with the help of antibiotics, the increase in the fluid intake could help in reducing the use of antibiotics at the same time. As such, this helps in controlling the antibiotic resistance of the body as per the researchers.
In this study, Dr. Lotan makes use of robotic, minimally invasive, and open surgical methods for treating kidney, bladder, prostate, testicular, and ureteral cancer. He is a leading surgeon at UT Southwestern’s Harold C. Simmons Comprehensive Cancer Center. Dr. Lotan is clinically recognized for his contributions in the field of coming up with urine markers for bladder cancer treatment along with molecular markers in other forms of urologic cancers.
