Interstitial cystitis vs bacterial cystitis

Cystitis and E-coli bacteria

E-coli bacteria, eses adhesins and urinary tract infection
E-coli bacteria and its adhesins cause the majority of cystitis

Common cystitis is an inflammation of the bladder most often caused by E-coli bacteria and can be treated in severe cases with antibiotics. Cystitis is a chronic disease. It lasts over time. Although both diseases have many symptoms in common, they should not be mixed because the severity of interstitial cystitis is much higher than that of bacterial cystitis with known causes and treatments. The causes of interstitial cystitis, which has long been considered psychogenic or even hysterical, are not yet known. Interstitial cystitis is inflammatory but not infectious. Although the symptoms of the disease are similar, it is much more disabling. In the most severe cases, the person may be taken to urinate every 15 minutes day and night. This almost constant need is caused by the pain becoming unbearable and the person is relieved by urinating. Sex in turn becomes difficult if not impossible. The disease is not constant and evolves by alternating attack and remission.

Interstitial cystitis

There is no diagnostic test for interstitial cystitis. To diagnose it, the doctor or health professional goes through elimination to ensure that the pain is not caused by other pathologies such as a stone on the bladder. When all pathologies with the same symptoms are ruled out, doctors evoke interstitial cystitis. The most accepted theory is the alteration of the bladder wall that would become permeable to toxic substances in the urine. Other theories are based more on neurological, allergic or genetic, but nothing is clearly demonstrated. Many researchers believe that interstitial cystitis is a combination of several diseases with multiple causes.

Treatments for interstitial cystitis are experimental. Their goal is to reduce the intensity of symptoms and the impact on the quality of life of people with this serious disease. 90% of patients with interstitial cystitis are women. The disease occurs on average between the age of 30 and 40, and 25% of patients are under 30 years of age. The disease seems to be more important in Western countries and in the Nordic countries. In the United States, one in 1500 people would be affected. It is important to remember that each patient is a different case. Only the doctor or a health professional qualified on the subject can give individualized and tailor-made information.
