What is UTI?

Urinary Tract Infection or UTI is a common type of bacterial infection that affects the urinary system. UTIs are more common in women and experts say that a woman faces more than one infection in her lifetime. 

Why is UTI more common in women?

Women have shorter urethras than men. With this disadvantage, the bacteria takes a shorter time to travel in order to reach the bladder.

  • Burning sensation while urinating
  • Frothy or cloudy urine
  • Urine has a strong smell
  • Low back pain 
  • Pelvic pain in women
  • Blood in the urine
  • Rectal pain
  • Painful ejaculation in men

What are the risk factors for UTI?

  • Poor personal hygiene
  • Sexual intercourse
  • Spermicide-coated condoms or contraceptive diaphragms
  • Pregnancy
  • Diabetes

Urine analysis: Bacteria causing UTI can be detected in the urine with this test.

Urine culture: This test can help determine which medications will be used for your treatment.

Why go for a UTI panel?

If not treated on time, UTIs can become severe as they can travel through the urinary tract through the ureters and kidney, leading to upper urinary tract infections.
