A new study shows that women who drink more water every day have rarely urinary tract infection.
The study focused on 140 women who often had urinary tract infection.
At the same time, they consumed less than a liter and half liquid daily.
Over the next 12 months, scientists also have asked half volunteers to continue drinking the same amount.
Water helps against urinary tract infection
In addition, scientists asked the remaining half of volunteers for an additional liter and half water daily to drink.
After a year, it was shown that a group of women who drank more water per year than average had a urinary tract infection about 1.7 times.
At the same time, a group who consumed just a liter and half a day had 3.2 times higher infection rate.
The data indicate that the hydration level is associated with the risk of urinary tract infection – said research leader Dr. Tomas Hooton of the Faculty of Medicine – the University of Miami.
If a woman often has urinary tract inflammation, she should pay attention to how much she consumes liquid.
In addition, if it is insufficient, increase it to at least two or three liters per day – Dr. Thomas Hooton says.
