What is a UTI?
print icon
  • UTI stands for Urinary Tract Infection (also referred to as a bladder infection or cystitis).
  • UTIs are common, particularly in women.
  • Most UTIs are caused by bacteria that live harmlessly in your gut but cause inflammation if they get into your urinary tract. It often stings as urine passes the inflamed area.
  • It is important to treat UTI quickly, as the infection can sometimes spread from the bladder to the kidneys (causing a kidney infection, also known as “pyelnonephritis”), which can make you extremely unwell.
