    UTIs Can Be Difficult to Treat Effectively

    While most UTIs can be resolved by your doctor, up to 30% of patients will see their symptoms return due to an inaccurate or incomplete diagnosis, requiring another visit to the doctor’s office.2 Recurrent UTIs can be caused by having multiple pathogens present or an infection that is resistant to antibiotics, both of which are common.

    Prevention and Treatment of UTIs

    How You Can Prevent a UTI

    A UTI is caused by pathogens infecting the urinary tract system, most often the bladder. While not all UTIs are preventable, talk to your doctor about some hygiene habits1 that can help reduce the risk of developing a UTI:

    • Urinating after sex
    • Wiping from front to back after urination
    • Taking showers instead of baths
    • Avoiding douches, sprays, or perfumed soaps in the genital area

    Leaving a UTI Untreated May Lead to Further Health Complications

    Untreated UTIs can develop into more serious infections that can cause lasting consequences. Without effective treatment, you may be at risk of:

    • Kidney infections (pyelonephritis)4
    • Pregnancy complications such as preterm labor, anemia, and severe kidney infections that could be fatal to the mother and baby4
    • Renal scarring and injury, especially in children5

    PCR Testing is More Reliable Than Culture

    PCR is more sensitive for UTI detection. 97% of UTIs are identified with PCR

    Using culture to diagnose a UTI is significantly limited by false-negative results and long turnaround times. NxGen MDx’s PCR-based UTI Test is about 25% more accurate than culture, giving you confidence in your patient’s results.1 Additionally, NxGen MDx’s PCR test includes simultaneous antibiotic resistance testing with a 24-hour turnaround time.

    Use NxGen MDx’s UTI Test and give your patient the optimal treatment plan for their unique infection.

    NxGen MDx Performs Simultaneous Antibiotic Resistance Testing

    According to the CDC

    “Each year in the U.S., at least 2.8 million people get an antibiotic resistant infection…”2

    Stop the revolving door of patients coming in again and again with recurrent UTIs. NxGen MDx empowers you to practice antibiotic stewardship by testing for resistance to 10 classes of antibiotics with results in 24 hours.

    Use NxGen MDx’s UTI Test to have confidence in a treatment plan that is appropriate for each infection.
