Chapter 1: Urinary Tract Infections Are Stubborn
Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs) are an exceedingly common problem among men and women worldwide that is only getting worse. In the Unites States alone over 8.1 million clinic visits are made by people suffering from their first UTI and in women, up to half of the cases are a recurring UTI.
Lets put this into perspective and think about what this figure actually means.
60% of women will have at least one UTI during their lifetime and up to 50% of those women will experience recurring or even chronic UTIs.
When we look at the stubborn recurring cases, 80% are reinfections, and 10% are a relapse caused by the same initial episode, meaning pharmaceutical treatment is not always enough.
