Extragenital pathology department, maternity hospital №5, Kiev.
Forty-eight future mothers took part in the experiment at terms from twenty-eight to thirty-eight weeks of gestation, suffering from infectious inflammations of the urinary system.
In patients with unsystematic bacteriuria, after a course of treatment with Urolesan, the pathogens in the urine were completely eliminated. This made it possible not to use antibiotics.

Main Military Clinical Hospital of the Ministry of Health of Ukraine, Clinic of Urology and Nephrology.
Conducted experiments on the treatment of chronic prostatitis with Urolesan. According to the data obtained, the use of the drug accelerates the cure of exacerbations, prolongs the periods of remission of the disease, and also improves laboratory results.
In addition, experiments were conducted on the use of the drug in the treatment of patients with diseases of the bile ducts and gall bladder. When treating patients with cholecystitis in chronic form, the serum protein indicators improved, which indicates an increase in immunity, an improved supply of oxygen to cells. The cure of patients was recorded for three to four days earlier than in the control group. Patients quickly normalized digestion, liver function. Disease agents disappeared into the bile.
A group of Ukrainian scientists conducted a study of the effect of the drug on patients with coronary heart disease, based on the fact that clinical trials revealed its beneficial effect on the state of peripheral blood flow, as well as the phase structure of left ventricular systole. During the experiment, it was found that the blood picture returned to normal, the effect of the external respiration apparatus improved, and the performance of the organs of the respiratory system normalized.
Under the conditions of hospitals, the influence of Urolesan on the condition of patients with pulmonary diseases was investigated. Under the action of the drug, the surfactant activity decreased (bronchial mucus) in patients with obstructive bronchitis, patients were recovering faster, improved laboratory results.
According to data from Gerich P.R., conducted in 2003, a study of Urolesan, this drug has a beneficial effect on the condition of patients with asthma of non-allergic origin. The number of peptides decreased (disease indicator), as well as indicators of external respiration approached the norm.

What is better than Urolesana?
In medical practice, it is very difficult to name any one drug that would be the best for a certain disease for all patients suffering from this pathology. This state of affairs is due to the fact that each person is different, and even if he suffers from a typical disease, which is also found in other people, this does not mean that the same medicine as the other will work best for him. Indeed, for one person, one drug may be the best, and for the other, another, although both of them suffer from the same pathology.
In connection with this state of affairs, doctors prefer to use the term "optimal", by which is meant the drug that is the best for this particular person at the current time. Accordingly, we cannot unequivocally indicate which medicine is better than Urolesan for all patients. Indeed, for one person, Urolesan would be the best, and for another – a completely different drug. Moreover, for the same person in different periods of time, different medicines may also be the best – for example, at one moment it is Urolesan, and after a year another drug.
That is why, in order to choose the best medicine strictly for yourself, you need to try taking several analogues with the closest possible therapeutic effect. And on the basis of the obtained effect, decide which drug is best for this particular person.
Natalia, 23 years old
During pregnancy I used urolesan very often, as he helped me, but antibiotics at this time cannot be drunk. In addition, also furazolidone saw. But here it is just during pregnancy is impossible, and during breastfeeding is also undesirable. I was prescribed these two drugs by a doctor from the antenatal clinic. Several times the bladder had problems during pregnancy. A couple of times on some drops went. The baby was born completely healthy and so far our kidneys are fine.
Alena, 38 years old
From time to time I take ulesan when I feel discomfort in the bladder. 10 drops of sugar. So after 30 minutes, the condition is relieved and even the pain goes away. I have chronic cystitis. And quite often I even find that the sand comes out of me. I really like this drug especially because it is harmless. After all, these are only solid herbs. Only here I can’t put sugar under my tongue – it’s very hot. Therefore, it is often necessary even to drink water. I heard that he had already appeared in capsules. But we have not yet.
Oleg, 40 years old
I already take the ulesan for the fourth day and I feel only constant nausea. As for the genitourinary system – there is still no results to detect. It may also be a bit early, but maybe this tool does not suit me. Among the side effects is nausea. But I thought it would pass with time. However, already four days and no relief not notice. Anyway, I will try to drink the whole course and then I will decide how effective it is for me. I was assigned to drink it for 14 days. I have small kidney stones and chronic prostatitis.
Alexandra, 28 years old
I think this is the best tool. When I was just diagnosed with urolithiasis, antibiotics were immediately prescribed. They didn’t help at all, and I went on to other doctors and pass all tests. The second time I have registered urolesan. Even with colic helped me more than once. Very quickly relieves and normalizes the condition. And he relieves inflammation. At the same time, not a single chemical substance is all natural and natural. Very pleased with the reception of this tool. I managed to drip and dissolve sugar, as it is written in the instructions. No problem.
Oksana, 47 years old
I was also helped by the urolesan, but only by the end of the first bottle. Before that, I didn’t really feel its effect. Only now his taste is so specific that a friend of mine, my friend, tried once and gave me her bubble. I could not drink more. It reminds me a lot of spruce needles. By the way, I am even asked to send him abroad, because there you cannot buy him there, but he helps you really well.
And the price attracts me. After all, it is quite inexpensive. In addition, sometimes it is enough to drink a couple of times to normalize the condition.
Lana, 33 years old
I have had kidney attacks since I was ten years old. And they diagnosed chronic pyelonephritis. Back in those days, the doctor recommended my mom to my mother. So she, just that, and it drips on me to sugar. I later forgot this drug for a while because I left far from my mother. But when my kidneys got hot I remembered about him. Now here I accept necessarily from time to time. Despite gastritis and any problems with digestion, I digest it pretty well, taste is so-so, but you can tolerate it.
