maybe i have a high uric acid on my urine aswell caused i am acidic inhave acid reflux doc
Doctor: Vakul Aren, Doctor replied 9 months ago

YOu may need to be investigated by a prostatic massage and examination of the discharged fluid for infection.A urine culture or a culture of the prostratic fluid to determine the cause of the infection will help identify the best drug for the infection.You may need to change the acidic nature of the urine by using an alkaliser.A bacterial culture and antibiotic sensitivity test will help idetify the best antibiotic for the problem.Blind use of antibiotics may cause more harm than good.

what should i say to my doctor to do a test?
Doctor: Vakul Aren, Doctor replied 9 months ago

Discuss the chances of identifying the bacteria after urine and prostatic fluid cultures before using empirical therapy for the prostrate infection.

Doctor: Vakul Aren, Doctor replied 9 months ago

Perhaps a urine and prostratic fluid culture would help ,empirical use of drugs would be the next step if the results are all negative.
