Re: Diagnosis and management of recurrent urinary tract infections in non-pregnant women

Repeated UTIs can be a symptom of hypothyroidism. It is important to investigate the cause of the infection rather than just keep treating the symptom. If patients keep visiting with repeat symptoms, It is because they are worried about their health and the last treatment was not satisfactory.
