|A Clean Washroom at Your Workplace Doesn't|
Guarantee UTI Proof Usage...
In simple words, urinary tract infection is a disease that spreads in your bladder, and if not treated in time, can reach up to kidneys and damaging them further. What’s important to know is that the root cause of UTI is the germs present in the washrooms, especially on the seats. Even the cleanest looking washroom, sans any stains can have the same germs that a filthy loo attracts.
...Is Common in Working Women
UTI, in the recent years has become a big concern in the working women segment, and I faced this horror on one of my working days in my plush office. It was shocking for me to know from my expert gyane that a clean looking washroom doesn’t guarantee hygiene. “You will be surprised to know that many of my patients are working women, and they come with this problem. When I ask them if they used any public loo, they straight away say no, forgetting that what you are using in your office is also for everyone. It’s hard to believe but is a brutal fact,” told my gyane.
Don’t wonder if I say it’s common among women. Not that men don’t experience UTI, but a woman’s nether region is such that it becomes easier for germs to flow in the tract that leads to the bladder. Thankfully, in my case I was quick and got the tests done in time. Many women in the rural India never visit a doctor, out of embarrassment and shame. This results in the damage of kidneys in many cases, and ultimately organ failure which results in death…
...Never to Ignore the Symptoms
Don’t get panicked as UTI is completely curable. I managed to get back to my workplace within 24 hours. The right medication, and intake of citric-based fluids help in flushing out the germs in no time. The cure takes its own course of action, if the infection hasn’t reached the kidneys.
Well, the best cure, based on my personal experience I can say is that prefer using your personal washrooms as much as you can. If at workplace, tell your bosses to use medicated disinfectants than the jazzy-looking fragrance diffusers… They are good for nothing!
