Efficacy of Ascorbic Acid Supplementation in Relief of Symptoms Due to Febrile Upper Urinary Tract Infection in Children, a Clinical Trial and Hospital Based Study
BackgroundUrinary tract infections (UTIs) as a urological disorder occur in 1% - 3% of females and 1% of males. This disease can induce severe complications such as pyelonephritis.
ObjectivesThe current study aimed to evaluating the efficacy of vitamin C supplementation on UTI in children.
MethodsThe current clinical trial study was conducted on 152 female children with UTI admitted to Amir-Kabir hospital, Arak, Iran. The cases were randomly divided, based on blocked groups, into two treatment and control groups (76 patients in any group). The subjects were matched in terms of age, gender, and clinical signs and symptoms. The control group received only routine treatment of UTI, while the treatment group, in addition to the routine treatment received oral vitamin C supplementation tablet, for a 14-day period.
ResultsDysuria, urine incontinence, fever, urinary urgency, and dribbling occurred significantly earlier in vitamin C supplemented individuals than the control ones, while abdominal pain, dimercaptosuccinic acid (DMSA) scan, and recurrent UTI were not different between the two groups.
ConclusionsVitamin C supplementation can control the symptoms of urinary tract infections, including fever, dysuria, urinary urgency, and dribbling urine
