The infection is diagnosed through some of the tests such as

Urine Sample: The doctor takes your urine sample and analyses it in the lab to check
for the presence of any bacteria.

Urinary tract images: In case of frequent infections, the images of your urinary tract is taken via ultrasound, CT scan, or MRI.

Checking the inside of the bladder: For patients with recurrent UTIs, cystoscopy is performed. It is done to check the inside of your bladder and urethra using a thin tube with a lens.

Treatment through antibiotics
Urinary Tract Infection Specialist says UTIs are treated differently based on its cause. The ones that are caused due to bacteria are treated using antibiotics. However, if the UTI is caused due to fungi or viruses then other medications like antivirals and antifungals are used to treat it.

A simple UTI that does not have major complications is usually treated with a dose of
antibiotics for a few days. It again depends on which part of the tract is infected.
● To treat lower tract UTIs, oral antibiotics are given.
● To treat upper tract UTIs, intravenous antibiotics are given.

Usually, antibiotics such as Trimethoprim/sulfamethoxazole, Fosfomycin (Monurol), Nitrofurantoin (Macrodantin, Macrobid), Cephalexin (Keflex), and Ceftriaxone are recommended.

Treatment using home remedies
While it’s crucial to take medications to treat UTI, you can further speed up the process by taking extra care at home.

Drinking more water helps to get rid of the infection faster. Also, cranberries or cranberry juice is recommended to prevent UTI.
