CAUSES AND TREATMENT OF UTIs 3 Possible outcomes of UTI if left untreated i. Repeated infections especially in women ii. Permanent damage of the kidney iii. Infected women may deliver premature babies iv. Narrowing of the urethra among men v. Sepsis which is fatal Can cranberry juice prevent UTIs? It has been thought that cranberry juice can help in preventing UTIs since it would acidify the urine thus making it impossible to get infections. Researchers have found this not to be true since drinking cranberry doesn’t cause a significant difference in the level of acidity. In 2012 the Cochrane review found that drinking cranberry doesn’t significantly prevent UTIs and should not be used for a long time. Other Home-Remedies That Can Treat UTIs. According to Nadler(2003),there are several science supported UTI home remedies such as bilberry, brome lain, coriander seed, cinnamon, curcumin, Echinacea, ginger, hibiscus, horsetail, juniper berries, lingonberry, propolisa Vitamin D and Vitamin C among others. Most of these home-remedies work by preventing bacteria breeding and boosting the immune system.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
