Can A Yeast Infection Turn Into A Urinary Tract Infection If Left Untreated?

August 14, 2019

Good day, Eric Bakker again, naturopath, with
another frequently asked question for Candida Crusher. Can a yeast infection turn into a urinary
tract infection if left untreated? Well, yeast infections can predispose you
to many different types of infections. They, in turn, are there because of poor or compromised
immunity and, in turn, can further compromise your lowered immunity and predispose you to
a UTI or urinary tract infection. Urinary tract infections are common for certain
types of people. Elderly women, I find, have more, but many women suffer from recurring
UTIs as well, particularly younger women who often have these. UTIS can come about through
increased sexual activity, but also infrequent emptying or bladder issues. Lowered immunity
or compromised immunity is a key reason why people would have a UTI. So drinking plenty
of water is a clever idea and boosting immunity up. Coming back to that question again, can a
UTI be there because of a yeast infection? It can be because of the predisposing factor,
but yeast infections don’t generally cause UTIs as such, but they can develop out of
yeast infections. So basically the smart thing to do if you
have got a UTI is to improve your immune health and your urinary health and I’ll be covering
more details in further FAQs on UTIs to give you some very good ideas on how you can overcome
a urinary tract infection. These are things that you can get on top of. So I hope that answers your question in a
roundabout way. Thank you.

    Hey Doctor, how does the Canxida product fare against uti and bacterial infection in the male private parts. I know Canxida is a potent antifungal but also an antibacterial as well. I was wondering if you've seen results on it being effective on things like prostatitis or epididymitis particularly when they are caused by bacteria. I know of someone going through it currently but was hesitant to recommend Canxida for that problem because i wasn't sure. Thanks

    Bladder does not hold as much as it used to do before I took antibiotics to treat an urinary infection, have to go more than 9 times to the bathroom per day. I'm also experiencing foamy urine, smelly urine and I find strange that I feel no pain at all, so I wonder if it's really yeast.
