Urinary Tract Infections Q & A

New Care Clinic

What is a urinary tract infection (UTI)?

A urinary tract infection, or UTI, is an infection that develops when bacteria enters the urinary tract and begins to multiply. In most cases, these germs enter through the urethra, the tube that transports urine from the bladder and out of the body. When germs enter the urethra, they can move upward into the bladder, kidneys and ureters, the tubes that move urine from the kidneys into the bladder. UTIs are most easily treated before they reach the kidneys, where they can cause more serious problems.

What are the common symptoms associated with urinary tract infections?

Most people experience these symptoms:

  • Feeling an urgent need to urinate, with only a few drops of urine being excreted
  • Burning or pain on urination
  • Urine that appears cloudy or pinkish
  • Urine that has a strong smell

A few people may have no symptoms at all. If the infection reaches the kidneys, symptoms can include low back pain, fever, chills and vomiting.

Are some people more prone to UTIs?

Anyone can get a UTI, but some people are at greater risk for the infections, including:

  • Women
  • Diabetics
  • Men whose prostate glands are enlarged
  • People with kidney stones

How are urinary tract infections treated?

Before treating you, the doctor will take a quick urine test to check for the presence of bacteria or blood, another sign of infection. When a UTI is diagnosed, the doctor will prescribe an antibiotic that's designed to fight the type of bacteria causing the infection. Although most people feel better soon after beginning their course of medication, it's important to take the full prescription to ensure the infection is completely cured. You'll also need to drink plenty of fluids to flush out your kidneys and bladder.
