Points to Remember
- Most urinary tract infections (UTIs) arise from one type of bacteria, Escherichia coli (E. coli), which normally lives in the bowel.
- Symptoms of a UTI in adults may include the following:
- a frequent and intense urge to urinate.
- a painful, burning feeling in the bladder or urethra during urination.
- feeling tired, shaky, and weak.
- muscle aches.
- abdominal pain.
- only small amounts of urine passed, despite a strong urge to urinate.
- cloudy, dark, or bloody urine or urine that has a foul smell.
- pain in the back or side below the ribs.
- nausea and vomiting.
- Fever may indicate a kidney or prostate infection.
- Because bacteria can be found in the urine of healthy individuals, a UTI is diagnosed based both on symptoms and a laboratory test.
- UTIs are treated with bacteria-fighting medications called antibiotics or antimicrobials.
