3 Facts About Cystitis That are Hard to Deal With

You might believe that Interstitial Cystitis was just discovered because there is not a whole lot of information about it or how to treat it. The facts about cystitis are widely known since this condition was first diagnosed over 100 years ago. It’s amazing to actually think about that because this disease is also believed to be tied to lots of issues that affect the immune system. What is shocking is that there are some physicians who doubt the existence of the disease at all. They don’t deny those symptoms or that the patients experience actual pain but they do raise quite a few questions about it.

Today, doctors are trying to refine their diagnosis of interstitial cystitis, specifically in regard to the type that causes ulcers and those that will not cause them. Really, it’s not surprising when you realize that there are many differences in each potential diagnoses. The development of ulcers in the body is something that less than 10% of those that contract cystitis will actually get. This is not the same as ulcers that you get in your digestive tract by the way Where the inflammation occurs (wall of the bladder) is where the interstitial cystitis will actually cause ulcers that form. Both types of ulcers can bleed which is the only similarity between the two.

Another name for interstitial cystitis is nonbacterial cystitis. Once they do a test on your urinary tract that proves to be negative, they can make this diagnosis. What is known about this condition is there are problems in the immune system.

This particular health issue is the results of small cracks that form in the bladder wall. These fill up with urine causing problems adjacent to the bladder muscle itself. Urine in the cracks will degrade the tissue lining of the bladder itself. Basically, the urine is what is causing the irritation because it shouldn’t be there.

We have talked about the gender breakdown with interstitial cystitis, but in general women are much more likely to develop this condition. The figures show that women are thirty times more likely to develop the condition than a men. When both the immune system and the urinary tract are healthy, it isn’t likely that a man is going to develop IC. If, however, you are a man with a prostate problems, you will be more likely to develop an infection of your bladder. The fact that there are connections and risks makes more sense when you realize that there are two main types of IC: non-bacterial and bacterial. An important that everyone needs to be aware of is the STD that involves urethritis which is quite common in men. All of the studies have shown that cystitis can actually develop in virtually anyone at anytime. Males are less likely to get IC, women more likely. For some reason, sexual activity with women, and their age, seems to contribute to why they develop this condition. On other hand, that is just a statistical correlation and not a guarantee which is obviously a good thing.

For a variety of reasons, interstitial cystitis provides the two individuals and physicians a new run for his or her money. When looking at this particular condition, deciding their cause, as well as acquiring get rid of it, is tough data for you to find.
