Common Misdiagnoses and Nonspecific genitourinary infections
Antibiotics often causes diarrhea: The use of antibiotics are very likely
to cause some level of diarrhea in patients.
The reason is that antibiotics kill off not only "bad" bacteria,
but can also kill the "good" bacteria in the gut.
This leads to "digestive imbalance" where there are too few remaining "good"
bacteria in the digestive system.
The treatment is typically to use "probiotics", such as by eating yoghurt cultures
containing more of the good bacteria.
See digestive imbalance and probiotics.
Interstitial cystitis an under-diagnosed bladder condition: The medical
condition of interstitial cystitic is a bladder condition that can be
misdiagnosed as various conditions such as overactive bladder or other causes of pelvic pain.
This condition can cause chronic pelvic pain or symptoms of urinary incontinence,
similar to overactive bladder.
Millions of patients may be misdiagnosed - an estimated third of the 9 million women with
chronic pelvic pain (CPP) or 4.5 million of the 17 million women with overactive bladder syndrome
do not respond well to treatment, and may have interstitial cystitis rather than their given diagnosis.
In other words, about 6 million US women may have misdiagnosed interstitial cystitis.
See interstitial cystitis or overactive bladder, or incontinence.
