What Is a UTI?

A UTI is an infection that affects any part of your urinary system, which includes your kidneys, bladder, ureters, and urethra. Most UTIs are caused by bacteria, but they can also be caused by viruses and fungi. If not treated promptly, UTIs can lead to more serious complications, including kidney damage.

UTIs occur when bacteria enter the urinary tract through the urethra and begin to multiply in the bladder. Although the urinary system is designed to keep out such microscopic invaders, these defenses sometimes fail. When that happens, bacteria may take hold and grow into an infection in the urinary tract.

How Are UTIs Treated?

At Legacy ER & Urgent Care, our highly skilled medical team uses advanced diagnostic tools to confirm whether you have a UTI. If an infection is detected, the typical treatment is antibiotics, which kill the bacteria causing the infection. Our priority is to provide you with relief from symptoms as quickly as possible and prevent complications.

It is also important to note that UTIs can be prevented with proper care. Preventing UTIs starts with practicing proper hygiene and staying hydrated. It's important to empty your bladder regularly and fully, and to avoid holding your urine for long periods of time. Drinking plenty of water can help dilute your urine and ensure that you urinate more frequently, therefore flushing any bacteria out of your urinary tract.
