I had no warning signs with either one. I woke up to weird smelling urine and a lot of blood in my urine. So I was expecting to have a UTI, but they said I had a really bad kidney infection. Took my antibiotics and thought it went away, and just got another one. Same thing no warning signs and ended up with a really bad kidney infection.

Not doing anything or taking anything different
A:A possible complication of acute pyelonephritis is chronic kidney disease. If the infection continues, the kidneys may be permanently damaged. Although rare, it’s also possible for the infection to enter the bloodstream. This can result in a potentially deadly infection called sepsis.
What causes frequent kidney infections? Bacteria that enter your urinary tract through the tube that carries urine from your body (urethra) can multiply and travel to your kidneys. This is the most commoncause of kidney infections. Bacteria from an infection elsewhere in your body also can spread through your bloodstream to your kidneys.
They can also happen if people try to cure their bladder infections with home remedies, like drinking cranberry juice (no, this won’t work). “Cranberry juice is not a treatment for a urinary tract infection
