Doc first i had fever and chills last month then i was diagnosed with uti they treated me with Cefixime 200 mg 2 doses for 7 days but it didn't work but after 2 days it resolved by itself and after 1 week gap i again had groin pain, suprapubic pain, kidney pain and burning sensation during urine, urinary frequency, few drops of urine dropped after urination and they gave Azithromycin and painkiller after 2 days of that i had vomiting and chills and then i visited the doctor. They gave Sultamicillin 750 mg and painkillers and 3 days before they gave Sodium bicarbonate and Ofloxacin. The ultrasound showed its "renal parenchymal disease" and my creatinine is high, and in cbc infection is showing and urinalysis also shows infection last week. But in this week only monocytes are high and creatinine is high. I wanna know is there is any better way to treat this other than the Sodium bicarbonate and Oflaxacin.


whatever the symptoms and report I have seen that suggests a case of uti with acute kidney injury. as per your symptom the disease is recurrent. your reports are not too much to worried about. go for one urine culture report and fasting blood sugar. otherwise increase your water intake that will settle down your creatinine. maintain genital hygiene and abstinence from sexual contact for 2 weeks. take tablet Nitrofurantoin 100 mg twice daily for 5 days.

Investigations to be done:

urine culture, serum fasting glucose

Treatment plan:

tab. nitrofurantoin 100mg twice daily for 5 days. take plenty of water.
