E. coli is the most common type of bacteria to cause UTIs, although occasionally, other types of infectious bacteria may be implicated....
Anyone can develop a UTI, but women are 30 times more likely to be affected than men. Approximately 40% of women will experience a UTI at some point. A UTI can affect any part of the urinary system, including the urethra, bladder, ureters, and kidneys. However, UITs usually start in the lower urinary tract, bladder, and urethra organs.

- a burning sensation when you urinate
- frequent and intense urges to urinate
- cloudy, dark, or bloody urine
- fever or fatigue
- pain in your pelvis, lower abdomen, or back

Examples include D-mannose, uva ursi (bearberry leaf), garlic, and cranberry. Read More
