Recurrent Urinary Tract Infections
The diagnosis of a recurrent Urinary Tract Infection takes place when a patient has numerous recurring documented UTIs. This is different than a patient with bacteria in their urine without symptoms.
What Is a Recurrent Urinary Tract Infection (UTI)? UTI symptoms can include burning with urination, suprapubic pain, urinary frequency and sometimes fever. They are associated with a positive urine culture (usually bacteria such as E. coli, Pseudomonas, Proteus, etc.).
The diagnosis of a recurrent UTI takes place when a patient has numerous recurring documented UTIs. This is different than a patient with bacteria in their urine without symptoms – which is called asymptomatic bacteriuria. That condition does not require treatment.
We use PCR urine testing for recurrent UTIs. This is a unique rapid molecular urine test for both pathogen identification and antibiotic sensitivity. It uses advanced technologies to identify pathogens commonly associated with persistent UTIs. Standard urine culture testing often fails to detect the pathogens responsible for urinary symptoms.
