As of today, this disease affects about 30% of men aged 20 to 50 years. This is one of the most common male urological diseases with severe negative outcomes. There are two types of this disease:
The essential factors predisposing to the development of chronic prostatitis include a decrease of the immune functions, diverse hormonal disorders, and chronic infections. In addition, chronic prostatitis tends to develop in men leading an inactive lifestyle, men suffering from regular and serious stresses, and, according to the research started by the Mississippi State Department of Health, obese patients. All these factors either contribute to the gradual amplification of infection or lead to the significant deterioration of the blood supply in the pelvic organs, provoking various congestive processes, which promote both the reproduction of harmful bacteria and the further escalation of the inflammatory processes.
Based on the foregoing, it is easy to understand why this health disorder is both difficult to cure and to prevent. Firstly, chronic prostatitis is a complex condition that develops because of various factors. In order to minimize the risks of developing this disease, it is necessary to introduce systemic changes in the lifestyle, such as switching to healthy balanced diets and active lifestyle, abandoning most of the so-called bad habits, etc.
Secondly, chronic prostatitis often develops over a period of several years, without causing much concern. If, however, certain typical reactions are observed, they are often irregular and vanish after several days. The characteristic reactions include severe pain, painful urination, pain in the back, fatigue, etc. Unfortunately, most men at this stage of the disease tend not to pay attention to these symptoms. In other words, the main danger of this infection is that it may spread through the urinary system undetected.
Thirdly, antibiotics are mostly ineffective in the medical management of this health disorder. For instance, in compliance with the data gathered in the Center for Chronic Disease Outcomes Research, repeat courses of antibiotic therapy provide no further curing effect due to the antimicrobial resistance.
