Infection from urine: Urosepsis is a urinary tract infection that has entered the bloodstream. Although it does not technically have to enter the bloodstream, this is what usually causes sepsis.

Depends : Clindamycin is a antibiotic used to treat certain infections, usually skin related. However, if you have a urine or kidney infection, when you go to the doctor (or hospital), they take a sample of your urine (and sometimes blood) to identify the exact bacteria causing the infection. Clindamycin might be used if the bacteria shows the greatest weakness to it, but it is not a common initial choice. ...Read more
Can urosepsis make your period late? I got out hospital 1 month ago which was the first day of my period. I am now a day late, also had thrush
Yes any illnesses: can alter enough of your cycle to throw it out of schedule. It will probably take a few days to weeks to reset your cycle. If you are late for more than a couple of weeks, I would check a urine pregnancy test to be sure, and if that is negative and you are still late, check a second one 1 week later. Thanks for trusting in HealthTap. ...Read more

Relatively high risk: Hi. That's a relatively low HDL, high LDL, and high non-HDL (LDL + VLDL, dominated in your case by the LDL). What is your family history of heart attack and stroke? Are you diabetic? Do you smoke? Live healthily, eat healthily, exercise regularly, and obviously don't smoke. It is easy to justify a statin in a case like yours. The low HDL is tough to treat and I figure your triglycerides are ~150 ...Read more
