Asymptomatic bacteriuria

Asymptomatic bacteriuria is a significant number of bacteria in the urine that occurs without usual symptoms such as burning during urination or frequent urination.Asympomatic bacteruria may not need treatment , which makes it different from a bacterial urinary tract infection .
Overview
By definition , asymptomatic bacteriuria causes no symptoms . With the heart and liver condition, there are many other symptoms that go along with it, and since you sound relatively asymptomatic, I doubt that has anything to do with it. The symptoms of a urinary tract infection include burning during urination , an increased urgency to urinate , and increased frequency of urination .
Symptoms
Not all patients with asymptomatic bacteriuria respond to treatment or even need treatment . Pregnant women , kidney transplant recipients , children with vesicoureteral reflux , and those with infected kidney stones appear to be more likely to benefit from treatment with antibiotics.Giving antibiotics to persons who have long - term urinary catheters in place may cause harm . The bacteria may be more difficult to treat and the patients may develop a yeast infection.If asymptomatic bacteriuria is found before a urological procedure , it should be treated to prevent complications . Therefore, asymptomatic sexual partners of treated patients should be treated simultaneously if the organism has been found to be present, in the order to prevent reinfection of the partner. The course of treatment in these cases depends on the person 's risk factors . I have been feeling fine, but of course reading about all sorts of asymptomatic diseases.
Treatment
Asymptomatic bacteriuria occurs in a small number of healthy individuals . It more often affects women than men . The reasons for the lack of symptoms are not well understood.Most patients with asymptomatic bacteriuria do not need treatment because the bacteria is n't causing any harm . Persons who have urinary catheters often will have bacteriuria , but most will not have symptoms.Certain people are at a higher risk for kidney infections if they develop asymptomatic bacteriuria . Most people after all are asymptomatic, and yet the average person does eventually develop heart disease in the US. The following increases your risk : DiabetesInfected kidney stonesKidney transplant Older agePregnancy -- up to 40 % of pregnant women with untreated asymptomatic bacteriuria will develop a kidney infectionVesicoureteral reflux in young children
Causes
Asymptomatic bacteriuria is detected by the discovery of significant bacterial growth in a urine culture taken from a urine sample . The decision as to whether to treat an asymptomatic male partner who has a negative culture or one for whom no culture has been attempted is an individual one.
Tests & diagnosis
Most individuals with asymptomatic bacteriuria who do not have risk factors for complications do extremely well.The outlook for those at high - risk is good if the infection is detected early , but it depends on the person 's overall health .
Prognosis
Untreated , asymptomatic bacteriuria can lead to a kidney infection in high - risk individuals . First of all, I would not say your sinus infection is asymptomatic. In some cases , particularly in those who have had kidney transplants , such infections may lead to the loss of kidney function . In 27 cases where chelation was used for two months, all had some relief; 19 became asymptomatic.
Complications
Call your health care provider if the following symptoms occur : Difficulty emptying your bladderFeverFlank or back painPain with urinationYou will need to be evaluated for a bladder or kidney infection .

It could be something like IBS, Crohn's, or ulcerative colitis.
THNew13.....are you meaning Ulcerative Colitis....or just colitis in a generic sense?
Could ischemic colitis possibly lead to ulcerative colitis in the long term?
abdominal pain/discomfort, constipation, “colitis”, Anorexia
I'm not familiar with collagenous colitis, how does it differ from crohns or ulcerative colitis?

shedding asymptomatic virus skin viral hsv1 present outbreaks herpes ob outbreak
Now, herpes is not contagious all the time, just either while a colsore is present, or during viral shedding (which is times when the virus is shedding without symptoms
A period is the shedding of the lining of the uterus--where the fertilized egg attaches.
These are called craddle craps, which are irregular shedding of the skin cells and clogged the pores.
I'm very aware of asymptomatic shedding, but I've also read that the longer you go without an OB, the chances of you shedding asymptomatically decreases....(also that with type one genitally there is a lower chance of shedding than type 2).
When having asymptomatic shedding how far from the site does it shed?
