Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs)
Urinary tract infections, or UTIs, are more common than most people think, affecting about one in five women. Despite their prevalence, the onset of UTIs is not often discussed among women. Anyone can develop a UTI; however, there are certain circumstances that increase the risk of UTIs, such as a previous infection, increased sexual activity, pregnancy, age, and poor hygiene.
There are multiple types of urinary tract infections, or UTIs, affecting the bladder (cystitis), the kidneys (acute pyelonephritis), and the urethra (urethritis). Each infection causes different side effects, further proving the pervasiveness of a urinary tract infection.
Because urinary tract infections may spread to the kidneys, it is important to treat it right away. Common symptoms include pain while urinating, frequent urination, bloody urination, and pressure or cramping in the groin. If you experience any symptom of a UTI, we recommend informing your doctor immediately.
Uplin is here to help patients with urinary tract infections. These infections can occur anywhere in the urinary system, including the bladder, kidneys, and urethra. Uplin’s discreet service for urinary tract infections helps treat existing UTIs, while also assisting patients in making small lifestyle changes to reduce the chance of recurring urinary tract infections.
Uplin’s medical team can visit you in your home, office, or anywhere else within an hour, 24/7, and address your symptoms, as well as prescribe medication to treat your urinary tract infection.
During your visit, Uplin’s team will obtain health history, review of current symptoms and complaints, and check of vital signs (blood pressure, heart rate, respiratory rate, pulse oxygen levels, temperature). When needed, our Uplin doctors will complete a urinalysis (urine test) to test for specific bacteria or other signs of infection, review your diagnosis and treatment options. Due to the implications of a UTI, our team will conduct an immediate treatment of your condition and prescribe medication as required.
After your visit, the Uplin medical team will discreetly follow up with you regarding lab results and make sure you are doing better. They will also answer any additional questions you may have concerning your care.
