UTI treatment tougher with antibiotic resistance growing

UTIs and antibiotic resistance

Why prophylactic antibiotics to avoid UTIs will make treatment more difficult

E. coli, the bacteria responsible for over 90% of UTIs, was named on World Health Organization (WHO)'s list of bacteria to watch,according to PBS
    The implications of antibiotic resistance in the context of UTIs could be enormous sincehalf of all women will develop a UTI at some point in their lives, andone in every five women suffer from repeat infections. As it stands, it’s a pain to schedule a doctor's appointment for a diagnosis and acquire a prescription of antibiotics, and it can be costly depending on your insurance situation. But at least the result is always the same—infection, gone.
    Here’s Debora MacKenzie, reporting for New Scientist viaPBS, on the announcement released from World Health Organization:
    “Researchers at the WHO and at the University of Tübingen, Germany, pinpointed the most damaging families of drug-resistant bacteria based on criteria such as how often bacteria resist antibiotics, how many they resist, how often they kill, and the numbers of people affected.”
    The WHO compiled this list in an attempt to develop a game plan to develop new antibiotics that can tackle these widespread bacteria.  
    It's unclear what comes next but the list is a thought-provoking reminder that no matter how effective medicine can be, nothing beats prevention.

    "I suffered from CHRONIC UTIs and have had some pretty serious repercussions from taking mass amounts of antibiotics. I have not had a UTI since I started taking uqora. I drink it after things that are my triggers (sex in particular) and it stops it in it’s tracks!"
