More Info: Urinary tract infections are the most common bacterial infection requiring medical care and the number one reason for antibiotic prescriptions after a physician visit. More than 95% of these infections are treated with broad- spectrum antibiotics even though they are monobacterial. Left untreated, UTIs can lead to kidney damage and urosepsis; wrongly treated, the infection can lead to antibiotic resistance for future infections. Natural State Laboratories and NS Genomics in Arkansas is your full service lab offering a panel of 32 pathogens and provides resistance information for 12 classes of antibiotics.
