Both urinary tract infections (UTIs) and vaginal yeast infections are so common among women that getting your first one is almost a rite of passage. At some point in their lives, more than half of women in the United States will experience a UTI, and around 75 percent will have a vaginal yeast infection, according to the U.S. Office on Women’s Health.
Urinary tract infections plague millions of Americans. Now new research suggests that what they eat might have a role to play.
The Taiwanese study compared UTI rates among nearly 10,000 Buddhists living in the island nation, about a third of whom followed a strict vegetarian diet.
When a UTI hits, many people turn to home remedies like cranberries and baking soda.
Always rushing to the bathroom because of a constant need to pee? Does the urine burn on the way out or come with a lower abdomen ache? Uh oh, it might be a urinary tract infection.
