Uremia (urine poisoning)

Uremia (self-poisoning by urine) is not a disease, but a pathological condition caused by renal insufficiency that has arisen due to a number of reasons. Chronic uremia develops with the accumulation of poisonous metabolic products in the body due to impaired urine output. Usually, metabolic products are excreted from the body with urine. If the kidneys are disturbed, these substances, as well as water, remain in the body. This leads to the accumulation of water in the subcutaneous tissue and the development of edema. In the blood, the content of toxic slags increases, water-salt metabolism and acid-base balance are disrupted (so-called acidosis is observed). Because of this, uraemia occurs....

Urinary tract infection

The urinary tract system consists of the kidneys, two ureters, the bladder and the urethra. Urinary tract infections: cystitis (inflammation of the bladder), pyelitis (inflammation of the renal pelvis) and urethritis (inflammation of the urethra). Symptoms of a urinary tract infection Frequent and painful urination. Pulsating pain in the side, in the kidney area. Burning with urination. Blood in the urine. Increased body temperature. Causes of Urinary Tract Infection Typically, the infection of the urinary tract is caused by bacteria from the intestinal microflora that enter the urethra and enter it into the bladder. Inflammation is possible with hypothermia, bacterial...

Urolithiasis disease

The bladder is a hollow muscular body covered with a mucous membrane and located in the cavity of the small pelvis. The bladder can hold about 700-800 ml of urine. Urine is excreted from the body by the urethra. Sometimes the solid particles contained in the urine coalesce with each other. Often at the beginning of the disease, so-called "sand" is formed - a precipitate of crystals of uric acid, which can be seen in the urine with the naked eye. So formations are formed, which are called "bladder stones". Sometimes a stone can reach the size of a chicken egg. In this case, its spontaneous excretion from the body is impossible. Symptoms of urolithiasis Pain in the lower abdomen....

Uterine cancer

Cancer of the mucous membrane of the uterus is an oncological disease that affects mostly women of older age. It accounts for 5% of all malignant uterine tumors in women. In contrast to cervical cancer, which often occurs in multiple-birth women, uterine cancer is mainly caused by nulliparous women and women after menopause. In European countries in recent years, the incidence of this pathology is growing rapidly. Symptoms Violation of the functions of the pelvic organs. Bleeding after menopause, pain in the lower abdomen. Causes Some influence on the development of uterine cancer appears to be the methods of hormonal treatment that involve the administration of estrogen,...
