UTI Urinary Tract Infection

UTI Urinary Tract Infection

A urinary tract infection (UTI) is an infection in any part of your urinary system — your kidneys, ureters, bladder and urethra. Most infections are in the lower urinary tract, which includes the bladder and the urethra.

Women are at greater risk of developing urinary tract infections. If limited to the bladder, it can be painful, but if treated can avoid more serious complications if the UTI spreads to the kidneys.

Dr Karen Thampoe at West Houston Internal Medicine can treat urinary tract infections with antibiotics, but can also help diagnose other conditions and prescribe steps to reduce your chances of getting a UTI.
