Chronic UTI Australia
Chronic urinary tract infection (UTI) is a largely unrecognised condition that affects a significant percentage of the population. Of those living with a Chronic UTI, the majority are women. Most will never receive an accurate diagnosis or appropriate treatment for their condition. Anyone can develop a Chronic UTI and researchers say the biggest risk factor is having had a UTI. Between 25–35 percent of people treated for a normal, acute UTI fail that treatment and go on to develop a complicated, embedded infection that is extremely difficult to diagnose and treat. The Chronic UTI Australia blog features a new patient story each month sharing the journies of how individuals finally came to be accurately diagnosed and appropriately treated for their chronic UTI.
