Antibiotic Resistance in UTI's

Urinary Tract Infections are amongst the most common cause for an antibiotic prescription. 

 

The risk of drug resistant infections, also known as ‘super bugs’ is increased with frequent or long term antibiotic use. In areas of Australasia resistance to the most common UTI antibiotic is already over 20%. 

 

Both globally, and locally, antibiotic resistance is a problem because many bacteria that cause infections are becoming more resistant to commonly-used antibiotic treatments. A new list released by the World Health Organization indicates that E. coli, a leading cause of UTIs, is becoming resistant to some antibiotics.

 

UroFem D-mannose is not an antibiotic.
