Kidney Infection Symptoms in Women Over 60Kidney infection (Pyelonephritis) is more likely to occur in women because the urethra is much shorter in women than in men. There are some symptoms when kidney infection occurs in women over 60.


Kidney infection is always caused by Urinary Tract Infection (UTI) that is characterized by painful, urgent or frequent urination. Once the infection has spread to the kidney, signs of more severe illness usually result. They include:

-Sharp back pain or flank pain

-Fever (usually present) or chills

-Feeling sick (malaise)

-Nausea and vomiting

-Confusion (especially in the elderly)

Urine changes are also notices, such as:

-Blood in the urine (hematuria)

-Cloudy or foul-smelling urine

-Painful urination (burning sensation)

-Frequent and urgent urination

If you are experiencing any symptom listed above, you need immediate treatment, but do not use antibiotics by yourself. Consult your doctor about the dosage of medicines in case of side effects.

Natural traditional Chinese herbs for kidney infection

Only antibiotics is not enough, because they cannot repair the damaged renal tissue. To treat kidney infection from the root and help patients avoid Kidney Failure, I recommend traditional Chinese herbal remedies.

Traditional Chinese herbs are most plants and have been widely used all over the world. In our hospital, Shijiazhuang Hetaiheng Hospital, we have more than 30 years of clinical practices. Based on these herbs, we innovate some herbal remedies, such as:

-Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy. It is an external application used on bilateral Shenshu acupoints. With osmotic device, the effective ingredients can permeate into kidneys directly. It has the function of expanding blood vessels, reducing inflammation and degrading extracellular matrixes, thus increasing blood circulation and eliminating wastes inside the kidneys.

-Herbal tea. Some traditional Chinese herbs such as uva ursi, dandelion root, nettle leaf and corn silks can be made into tea. They can prevent bacteria from sticking on urinary tract and increase urine output. They are helpful for flushing the kidneys, fighting against infections.
