UTI in Adults

The urinary tract makes and stores urine which is a form of waste produced by the body.  Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs) are caused by bacteria in the urinary tract.  Infections of the urinary tract are common and result in an estimated 8 million visits to the doctor each year.

Testing of a urine sample will be the first step in diagnosing a UTI.  The most common treatment of a UTI is antibiotic treatment.
