The doctor will ask about your baby's symptoms and do an examination. He may ask about a family history of UTIs because the tendency to get them can be genetically inherited.
If your baby's doctor suspects a UTI, he'll need to collect a urine sample and check it for infection and inflammation with a urinalysis and urine culture. It's important for the doctor to verify that your baby has an infection and determine which bacteria are causing it so he can prescribe the correct antibiotic.
The challenge is that the doctor needs to collect a "sterile" urine sample, or one that hasn't been contaminated by the bacteria that are always present on your baby's skin. This is hard to do with a baby or young child who can't urinate on command or follow special instructions.
Most likely, the doctor will use a catheter to obtain a sample. He'll clean your baby's genitals with a sterile solution and then thread a tube, or catheter, up the urethra to get urine straight from the bladder. Your baby may cry during this procedure, but it's safe and routine and – while it can be uncomfortable – usually takes less than a minute.
Another option, not used as often, is to collect urine directly from the bladder by inserting a needle into the lower abdomen.
The doctor may be able to get preliminary results by using a urine dipstick or by examining the urine under a microscope in the office. If he sees evidence of infection from these initial results, he may start treatment right away. If he sends the sample to a lab for testing, it may take a day or two to get the results.
The doctor may recommend other tests, as well, because UTIs can be a sign that there's something wrong with your baby's urinary tract. Problems that cause UTIs include blockages and a condition called vesicoureteral reflux (VUR), in which urine from the bladder backs up into the kidneys. VUR is found in 30 to 40 percent of babies and young children who have UTIs.
The tests that your baby's doctor may recommend include:
Is there anything to worry about?
Yes there is. In fact, if you abuse the use of fat burners then there is certainly a lot to be worried about. You would be preparing yourself for side-effects which could be short-term, long-term, reversible or irreversible. Sounds horrifying? It is intended to be so because unless you use these things under proper guidance of an expert or medical practitioner, you are making a good case of what not to do. There have been cases in the past when people go to extremes in their desperation and suffer from side-effects. It is generally not the product that has to be blamed but the greed of the user for overnight success.
A total of 861 patients were randomly assigned to nab-paclitaxel plus gemcitabine (431 patients) or gemcitabine (430). The median overall survival was months in the nab-paclitaxel-gemcitabine group as compared with months in the gemcitabine group (hazard ratio for death, ; 95% confidence interval [CI], to ; P<). The survival rate was 35% in the nab-paclitaxel-gemcitabine group versus 22% in the gemcitabine group at 1 year, and 9% versus 4% at 2 years. The median progression-free survival was months in the nab-paclitaxel-gemcitabine group, as compared with months in the gemcitabine group (hazard ratio for disease progression or death, ; 95% CI, to ; P<); the response rate according to independent review was 23% versus 7% in the two groups (P<). The most common adverse events of grade 3 or higher were neutropenia (38% in the nab-paclitaxel-gemcitabine group vs. 27% in the gemcitabine group), fatigue (17% vs. 7%), and neuropathy (17% vs. 1%). Febrile neutropenia occurred in 3% versus 1% of the patients in the two groups. In the nab-paclitaxel-gemcitabine group, neuropathy of grade 3 or higher improved to grade 1 or lower in a median of 29 days.
