I would like to know please if it is normal to have mucous in urine?
i did Gnnoreah, Chlamydia test both negative. I also did a urine analysis and culture and came back normal except for the presence of mucous. The symptom that I am curently experiencing is frequent urination.
Can UTI not treated for more than 5 months cause general hair loss?
It is not normal to have mucous in urine. Increased mucous secretion could indicate GU infections, inflammations, renal disorders etc. I would suggest getting this evaluated by a primary care physician initially and depending on the cause diagnosed/ suspected, it can be managed accordingly or specialist care may be sought.
Though any chronic infection/ inflammation could lead to hair loss, if more than mild other secondary issues such as cellulites, fungal infections, hormonal imbalance, hypervitaminosis A, some autoimmune diseases such as lupus, medications side effect, infections, folliculitis, endocrine disturbances, a few metabolic conditions, micronutrient deficiencies etc. would need to be evaluated for. I would suggest consulting a dermatologist for an evaluation for the above mentioned causes for an appropriate treatment.
Hope this helps.
