kidney infection can occur at any age in one's life and from medical practitioners it's proven that kidney infection it's more common in women than men.
this is because the woman's urethra is closer to the anus which might allow bacteria to be easily introduced from the bowel and travels up the urethra.

Causes of kidney infection
the bacteria that causes a kidney infection are the same as those that causes ordinary urinary tract bacteria can enter into the urethra from the skin around it.and this happens when the bacteria escape the bladder and urethra and go up to the ureters to one or both kidneys.
