Urinary Tract Infections
Urinary tract infections are the second most common reason requiring medical care. It is estimated that 40% of women over the age of 18 will suffer at least one urinary infection.
Urinary tract infection risk factors include sexual intercourse, the use of intrauterine devices (IUDs), menopausal women, and certain diseases such as poorly controlled diabetes.
Clinical diagnosis of urinary tract infections is based on the presence of urinary symptoms such as itching during urination, increased urination frequency, pain during micturition and even haematuria. Urine studies through urine culture allows identifying the microorganism that causes it and determining effective antibiotics for its management.
