If you have a kidney infection, does that automatically mean you have a bladder Infection also? I know you can have bladder infection without pyleonep
Not necessarily: Infection in the kidney need not be associated with urinary bladder infection or cystitis, even the bugs in urine are traveling through the bladder.

For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually.
