Quick Reference Guide for Patients: Urinary Tract Infections

UTI Triggers & Fixes:

1. E.Coli- (from the bowel)- make sure to wipe front to back, if you are having bowel movement, consider using wipes to make sure you are clean.

2. Sugar- Decrease sugar intake as sugar will inflame any infection.

3. Holding Urine- Do hold urination, if you need to go to the bathroom, please go. Also, make sure to urinate after sex to help decrease the chance of infection.

Be aware: Women need to discern between bladder infection vs vaginal infection (bacteria vs yeast).
