Patients with kidney infections all know that kidney infections are infectious pathogens that enter the body and circulate inflammation and swelling of the kidneys, which eventually result in kidney infections. In addition we all understand that infection is a serious illness, if not timely treatment may cause permanent injury to the kidney and may eventually develop into chronic kidney disease, and everyone knows the infection can be transmitted to the blood lead to blood poisoning. It seems that kidney infection is indeed a very serious disease, so the cause of kidney infection is even more noticeable. So, what causes kidney infections in pregnancy? Why is it possible to have kidney infections during pregnancy?
Tongshantang experts compiled several reasons as follows: one is a kidney infection. Urinary tract infection in acute pyelonephritis: active, almost always have a presence of bacteriuria. Two is diabetes: the incidence of kidney infections in diabetic patients increases, and the treatment after the infection is also relatively difficult. Sugar is an important nutrient for bacteria, and diabetes can increase the concentration of bacteria in urine. The immune function of diabetes patients decreased, and the bactericidal effect of white blood cells on pathogenic bacteria decreased. Because of the small blood vessel pathological changes, causes the organization blood supply insufficiency and the ischemia, has affected the inflammation reaction, suppresses the antibody to the inflammation stove seepage. Such as nerve damage, neurogenic bladder function abnormalities lead to bladder emptying abnormalities and urinary retention, is also prone to infection factors. Three is urinary tract obstruction: urinary tract obstruction caused urinary stasis, bacteria easy hyperplasia. Increased renal pressure also contributes to the development of local pathogens. Four is urinary calculi: whether or not combined with urinary tract obstruction, urinary calculi will create a good growth environment for pathogenic bacteria, so that drug-resistant strains grow. Five is the ureter ureter regurgitation: the ureter ureter returns the patient, the kidney infection occurrence rate increases. Six is the pregnancy: Although the bacterial content in urine of pregnant women before pregnancy is not significantly increased, but the pregnancy due to bladder caused by fetal oppression, every time micturition not completely emptying, provides a good condition for bacterial reproduction. The seven is other: some factors that make kidney infections easy to develop and develop include analgesic, kidney disease, uric acid nephropathy, immune system suppression, and general debility.
