Re: Diagnosis and management of recurrent urinary tract infections in non-pregnant women
This article is focused on antimicrobial treatment and prevention options for UTI.
In terms of recurrent UTI there are a number of lifestyle and other measures outlined such as vaginal oestrogens and lactobacilli. The authors highlight the fact that these treatment options are inferior to low dose antimicrobials for UTI prevention. However, UTI prevention is multimodality approach with increased fluid intake, lactobacilli, vaginal oestrogens and/or low dose or patient initiated antimicrobials used in combination.
