Description

A urinary tract infection, or UTI, is an infection that occurs anywhere in the urinary tract. The urinary tract include the kidneys, ureters, bladder, prostate (in men), and the urethra. Any of the organs of the urinary tract can become infected, but most infections commonly involve the urethra or the bladder.

According to the National Kidney and Urologic Diseases Information Clearinghouse (NKUDIC), infections of the urinary tract are the second most common type of infection in the body. Women are more prone to having UTIs than men. However, UTIs can be very serious when they do occur in men.

UTIs are typically treated with antibiotics. But there are steps that you can do to reduce the chance of getting an infection.
