Pyelonephritis - usually caused by E. coli infection of the kidneys. E. coli bacteria can begin as urinary tract infections - causing fever, low back pain, vomiting, etc.. Is kidney infection fatal then?

About half of all infections require hospitalization. If there is no effective antibiotic treatment, it may lead to septicemia and die.

"This is a very real example of the complex threat posed by the emergence of bacteria, new antibiotic resistant strains," said David, a professor at the University of Losangeles in California, US."

Based on data from the emergency department at the 10 largest hospital in the United States, earlier studies identified people with pyelonephritis, and almost 12% of the standard antibiotics used by people were treated with anti fluoroquinolones. Antibiotic resistance, however, is more fatal to kidney infections.

Kidney disease constitution and resistance are relatively poor, immunity will also decline. Reducing infection is very important. Sometimes the patient is infected if he does not notice it, especially the upper respiratory tract infection, which is cold, skin, intestinal tract, fungal infection and so on, all of which can aggravate the kidney disease.

Especially colds, viruses can directly invade kidney tissue. The formation of antibody complement by virus antigen leads to the deposition of immune complex in the kidney, which leads to renal inflammation and gradually deteriorates the renal function. Responsible for the patient never let his kidney repeatedly, not take heart patients for medication and the infection is a major event, once again caused kidney damage, aggravate the disease, even lead to renal failure and uremia!
