3 Discomforting Facts About Cystitis

The thing you need to understand more than anything else is that nobody knows how to fix cystitis. Cystitis is most often talked about with the words "interstitial cystitis" (interstitial is a medical word that means in between). Typically what happens in this condition is that there is an inflammation between the bladder's wall and the muscles that are around it. Then there are a number of possibilities with how serious it becomes and whether or not ulcers develop. This is just the start of understanding just how many different things can affect IC. Since doctors are not really sure what actually causes it, visit their website there is a lot of room when trying to consider the origins.

Some forms of interstitial cystitis cause ulcers form. Others do not. Doctors today are trying to define the difference between the two types. There this link are also other differences in the diagnosis, so this is not surprising at all. Over 90% of the people that get interstitial cystitis do not actually have ulcers which is very good news. This is not the same as ulcers that you get in your digestive tract by the way It is the bladder wall, not the digestive tract, where the interstitial cystitis ulcers will actually form in the body. Bleeding can occur with all types of ulcers, so this is a commonality that they both share.

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. Your immune system may have problems if you have this particular condition. Whenever you get a disease or sickness that compromises your immune system, interstitial cystitis may develop. This condition is usually the results of small cracks forming in the bladder wall. Urine gets into the cracks between the bladder muscle in the wall itself. What happens is the tissue lining of the bladder will degrade because of the urine. 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 figure is about thirty times higher chance for women than men. If you are a man with a healthy immune system and urinary tract, you are not likely to develop the condition. On the flip side of that coin, however, men who have prostate problems are quite a lot more likely to also develop bladder infections. There are two forms of IC, bacterial and non-bacterial, so there is a connection and risk associated in that regard. An important that everyone needs to be aware of is the STD that involves urethritis which is quite common in men.

A lot of information has been gathered over the years about cystitis, which is a good thing.

Any medical disease that baffles physicians and researchers tends to gather quite a bit of evidence. But that still allows doctors to make an intelligent assessment of the condition when they encounter the symptoms. You could possibly see another doctor or a urologists to get a second opinion if you are diagnosed with IC.
