What are UTI’s?
UTI or Urinary Tract Infection, also referred to as cystitis, is the most common infection of the urinary tract, which includes kidneys, ureters, bladder and urethra. It can affect men, women and children of all ages, however women are more commonly affected.
Symptoms can often be painful and cause enormous discomfort for patients, who are often forced to wait a long time for assistance and treatment. Rapid diagnosis and early treatment is the best solution to tackle such infections, which may otherwise worsen over time.
A UTI can improve by itself and be aided by simple measures such as increasing fluid intake or the use of cranberry juice. In some cases, these measure alone will not work, and you may need a short course of prescribed antibiotics.
