Types of PROSTATITIS
information from the National Institutes of Health
•Acute bacterial prostatitis is the least common of the four types and is
potentially life-threatening. Fortunately, it is the easiest to diagnose and treat
effectively. Men with this disease often have chills; fever; pain in the lower back
and genital area; urinary frequency and urgency, often at night; burning or painful
urination; body aches; and a demonstrable infection of the urinary tract as evidenced
by white blood cells and bacteria in the urine. The treatment is an antimicrobial,
a medicine that kills microbes-organisms that can only be seen with a microscope,
including bacteria, viruses, and fungi. Antimicrobials include antibiotics and related
•Chronic bacterial prostatitis, also relatively uncommon, occurs when bacteria
find a spot on the prostate where they can survive. Men have urinary tract infections
that seem to go away but then come back with the same bacteria. Treatment usually
requires the use of antimicrobials for a prolonged period of time. However, antimicrobials
do not always cure this condition.
•Chronic prostatitis / chronic pelvic pain syndrome is the most common but
least understood form of prostatitis. It may be found in men of any age. Its symptoms
go away and then return without warning, and it may be inflammatory or noninflammatory.
In the inflammatory form, urine, semen, and prostatic fluid contain the kinds of
cells the body usually produces to fight infection, but no bacteria can be found.
In the noninflammatory form, not even the infection-fighting cells are present.
•Asymptomatic inflammatory prostatitis is the diagnosis given when the patient
does not complain of pain or discomfort but has infection-fighting cells in his
prostate fluid and semen. Doctors usually find this form of prostatitis when looking
for causes of infertility or testing for prostate cancer.
Treatments for PROSTATITIS
The bacterial forms of prostatitis are treated with antimicrobials. Acute prostatitis
may require a short hospital stay so that fluids and antimicrobials can be given
through an intravenous, or IV, tube. After the initial therapy, the patient will
need to take antimicrobials for 2 to 4 weeks.
Chronic bacterial prostatitis requires a longer course of therapy. The doctor may
prescribe a low dose of antimicrobials for 6 months to prevent recurrent infection.
If a patient has trouble emptying his bladder, the doctor may recommend medicine
or surgery to correct blockage.
Antimicrobials will not help nonbacterial prostatitis. Each patient will have to
work with his doctor to find an effective treatment. Changing diet or taking warm
baths may help. The doctor may perscribe a medicine called an alpha blocker to relax
the muscle tissue in the prostate. No single solution works for everyone with this
No treatment is needed for asymptomatic inflammatory prostatitis.
Guide to DIET and PROSTATITIS
from the National Institutes of Health
Most cases of acute prostatitis clear up completely with medication and slight changes
to the diet and behavior.
•Avoid substances that irritate your bladder, such as alcohol, caffeinated food
and beverages, citrus juices, and hot or spicy foods.
•Increase fluid intake (64 - 128 ounces per day) to urinate often and help flush
bacteria from your bladder.
How to use the DietGrail food database to select foods for Protatitis
This food database provides the caffeine and alcohol contents of approximately 7,000
food items. A food's mineral and vitamin contents are displayed in charts to allow
easy evaluation of its nutrition. You can use these vitamin and mineral charts to
choose the most nutrient-dense foods and avoid foods with empty calories.
Click on any of the column headers to sort foods. Avoid those with high content
of caffeine or alcohol.
In addition, the calorie pie chart shows the contribution of fat, carb and protein
to the food's total calorie.
Foods can be searched by name and sorted by nutrient contents to help you find the
most appropriate foods.
- Caffeine value is in mg and calculated per 100g of food weight.
- Alcohol value is in grams and calculated per 100g of food weight.
- Click on column header to sort foods by name or by caffeine or alcohol content.
- Pie chart shows relative contributions to total calories from carbohydrate, protein
and fat (and alcohol, if exists).
- The mineral and vitamin charts show the relative contents of minerals and vitamins
of each food. The higher the bubble, the higher mineral or vitamin content a food
has relative to other foods. The larger the bubble, the greater the mineral or vitamin
content relative to the Recommended Daily Allowances.
