What's a UTI (Urinary Tract Infection)?
--Urinary tract is composed of bladder, kidneys, urethra and ureters.
--UTI is an infection of any part of the urinary system.
--UTI's are given names depending in where they occur e.g
1. Cystitis --bladder infection
2. Urethritis --Urethra infection
3.pyelonephritis --kidney infection
4. Infection in ureters is very rare

--Women are likely to develop uti's than men due to anatomical differences.
--Urethra is shorter in women than in men and its closer to the anus making it more likely that bacteria are transferred to the bladder.
--Children and women most affected compared to men.

Causes of UTI
--Commonly caused by bacteria e.g Escherichia Coli

Risk factors of developing UTI
--Sexual intercourse --esp more frequent, intense and with multiple or new partners

For those with recurrent UTI
1. Diagnostic imaging-- Ultrasound, Ct scan, MRI and X-rays.
2. Urodynamics --Procedure that determines how well the urinary tract is storing and releasing urine.
3. Cystoscopy

--Most uti's are caused by bacteria
