UTI Resources

Antibiotic Resistance

Antibiotic resistance refers to the ability of an infection causing bacteria to resist the effects of antibiotics. According to the CDC, “each year in the United States at least 2.8 million antibiotic-resistant infections occur, and more than 35,000 people die as a result.”

Opioids & UTIs

Studies show that opioid therapy may cause urine retention. Over time, urine retention can lead to a Urinary Tract Infection, a common and potentially dangerous infection, especially for immune-compromised patients or those undergoing chemotherapy.
