2. High Sugar Diet
Hyperglycemia, or high blood sugar, is a major symptom of UTI and if you have a lifestyle that includes sweets, desserts, or chocolates, then you may want to be cautious. When you have a high sugar diet, your blood sugar increases as a result. When there is more sugar in the blood, you are essentially creating an environment for bacteria to grow and flourish. Why the urinary tract? With high blood sugar, you tend to void more than what is normal, so be mindful that your diet affects more than your appearance. Consider monitoring what you eat if you notice that you have been using the bathroom more often and always consult with a doctor.
