Understanding UTIs

Urinary Tract Infections or UTIs are common across all age groups. In fact, the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases estimates that UTIs account for nearly 8 million healthcare visit a year. The most common symptoms include more frequent urination than normal, a burning sensation, and sometime blood in the urine.

What is a UTI?

UTI stands for Urinary Tract Infection, and it refers to the infection of the kidneys, ureters, bladder, or the urethra. ​Your body and the urinary tract are designed to prevent infection but occasionally the defenses fail. If you suspect you have a bladder infection or a UTI, you should see a medical professional.

Why is it important to consult a health professional?

UTIs left untreated can lead to complications and additional infections. When a UTI is diagnosed and treated in time, it's unlikely that you will develop any further complications.

Who needs to get tested?

People of all ages can get UTIs, but women are at a higher risk than men. Prior infections also mean that you're more likely to get infected. Certain medical conditions, like diabetes or lifestyle factors, can also make you more susceptible to UTIs.
