Women should take care of their health as they go through a lot of health-related issues in their different stages of life some of them faces trouble in the menstrual beginning while other face trouble during menopause. There are several conditions in their adult life where they face a lot of issues such as hormonal changes, deficiency of vitamins and minerals during and after pregnancy, excessive workload, and most of them are deprived of a properly balanced diet.

Pyelonephritis is also known as a kidney infection which is basically a type of urinary tract infection caused by bacteria. Prolonged Bacterial infection in the lower urinary tract which is left untreated causes the spread of infection that moves upstream toward the Kidneys which leads to infection which is life-threatening and requires immediate medical attention.
