The urinary tract plays an important role in our daily health in removing toxins, in ensuring that body absorbs the adequate amount of water, keeping the body hydrated to help flush out and eradicate bacteria from the urinary tract. This manuscript aims to find the effect of low water intake and the effect of excessive consuming of fizzy drink on producing urinary tract infection. 200 individuals who recommended by physicians to general urine examination in Shaqlawa Hospital-Kurdistan region / Iraq were investigated; the analysis included three areas of concern: the exact amount of water consumption each day by the patient, the exact amount of fizzy drink consumption by the patient and the laboratory report for each patient. Lab reports show the great difference between patients who used to consume sufficient amount of water daily and patient who don't retain drinking sufficient amount of water daily. Lab report shows that patient who accustomed consume the fizzy drink in excessive amount are having severe urinary tract infection representative by bacteria, pus cell, RBC and epithelial cell, a patient who don't consume fizzy drink or patient who not use to consume fizzy drink were less infected.
