Symptoms of UTI are frequent urination, burning sensation while urinating and urgency to urinate. Kidney infections can cause pain in flank or back, nausea/vomiting, fever/chills along with above mentioned symptoms.
UTI can be diagnosed by urine dip stick test at I and My Doctors Clinic. Our doctor may send urine for culture tests to know exactly what issue is causing the infection and its sensitivity to antibiotics. Most UTI are treated with oral antibiotics as an outpatient. UTI in man, young kids and immunocompromised individuals could be more complicated. Kidney infections can make you very sick and some people end up needing to be hospitalized for IV (Intravenous) antibiotics.
