    What is a urinary tract infection (UTI)?
    A UTI is an infection anywhere in the urinary tract, such as the kidneys, bladder and urethra. Usually, the bacteria that cause a UTI enter the urethra and may travel to the bladder and kidneys. Your body often removes these bacteria, so there may not even be symptoms. But when they continue to reside in the bladder, they can cause irritation, which leads to an infection. Without treatment, the infection can lead to a more serious condition. That's why it so important to see your doctor as soon as you experience symptoms. Only your doctor can prescribe an antibiotic to treat your UTI.

    You're not alone.
    After the flu and the common cold, urinary tract infections are the most common medical complaint among women age 18+, and it has been estimated that up to 60% of women will experience the unbearable pain and discomfort of a UTI at least once during their lives. The rate of repeat infections is high as well — about 20% of those who experience one UTI will have another.

    UTI causes
    Both men and women can get urinary tract infections, although they are more common in women. That's because the bacteria that commonly cause a UTI are found in the digestive tract, stool, and on the skin around and between a woman's anus and vagina. Since the female urethra is located very near these areas, the likelihood of bacteria reaching it is great. The short length of a female's urethra also makes her more prone to infection in other parts of the urinary tract.

    Risk factors
    A woman's likelihood of developing a UTI increases as she ages and goes through certain life stages. Other more common risk factors and triggers for a UTI include:

    • Sexual intercourse can enable bacteria to more readily travel to the bladder. Women who use diaphragms and/or spermicidal agents for birth control may also be at higher risk.
    • Some medications, which may lower immunity.
    • Hormonal changes that occur during pregnancy, childbirth and menopause.
    • Diabetes or other chronic illnesses that may impair the immune system.
    • Exposure to damp clothes, such as wet bathing suits, which can aggravate bacteria growth.
    • Recurrent Infections.

    Most women don't have recurring infections, but it is common — in fact, one out of five women who get a UTI will get another one. (Source: US Department of Health and Human Services Office on Women’s Health.) If you do get another UTI, speak with your doctor about treatment options, he or she may prescribe a longer course of antibiotics or have other options for you. You may also take AZO Cranberry to help flush your system to maintain urinary tract cleanliness.

    Possible complications
    Once diagnosed, most UTIs can be treated successfully. But urinary tract infections that are left untreated can lead to more serious complications like kidney infections, which may cause permanent damage. Women who have UTIs while pregnant may also have an increased risk of delivering low birth weight or premature infants.

    How do I know it’s a UTI?
    Not everyone with a urinary tract infection develops symptoms, but most people have at least some. You may have a UTI if you experience two or more of the following urinary tract infection symptoms:

    • You experience a burning sensation when you urinate
    • You feel a strong, persistent need to urinate, yet only pass a small amount
    • Your urine is cloudy or contains blood
    • Your urine has a strong odor
    • You have pain in your back or lower abdomen
    • You experience nausea, vomiting and/or just feel ill

    If so, see your doctor, because the sooner you get treatment, the better. An untreated UTI could lead to serious complications. Your doctor will test a sample of your urine. Once the bacteria are identified, your doctor can prescribe an antibiotic to kill them. If you don't get an antibiotic, you won't get rid of the bacteria that caused your UTI and serious health problems may develop.

    Test at home with AZO Test Strips
    You can also use AZO Test Strips – the same test pads used in many doctor's offices – to determine if the bacteria that cause a UTI are present, then call your doctor with the results. The most reliable, over-the-counter home test available, AZO Test Strips offer two tests in one - including both Leukocyte (white blood cells) and Nitrite tests – which makes them more accurate than nitrite-only tests. (Doctors look for Leukocytes as well as Nitrites in diagnosing UTIs.)

    In the meantime, you can get fast relief from the pain and urgency of urinary tract infection symptoms with AZO Urinary Pain Relief and AZO Urinary Pain Relief Maximum Strength, the #1 pharmacist recommended, over-the-counter brand proven to relieve UTI pain fast.

    How do I treat a UTI?
    Only your doctor can prescribe an antibiotic to kill the exact kind of bacteria that is causing your UTI. For a simple infection, you may take the antibiotic for 3 days or so. For a more serious infection, you may be given a prescription for 7 days or more.

    Before you can see a doctor, or until the antibiotic starts to work, you can relieve the painful symptoms FAST with an over-the-counter urinary pain reliever like AZO Urinary Pain Relief or AZO Urinary Pain Relief Maximum Strength.

    If you have recurrent UTIs, your doctor may suggest a different treatment course, or lifestyle changes. Make sure your doctor is aware of any other medications you may be taking, or allergies you have, and follow all instructions carefully.

    Fast relief for UTI symptoms
    In the meantime, if you experience symptoms like pain, burning and frequent, urgent urination, you can get fast relief with AZO Urinary Pain Relief or AZO Urinary Pain Relief Maximum Strength. Take the tablets for up to two days to relieve the pain, burning and urgency. Discuss with your physician as to whether or not it will interfere with your antibiotic.

    What else you can do

    • Drinking plenty of water may help to dilute your urine and help flush out bacteria.
    • Avoid coffee, alcohol and soft drinks that contain citrus juices and caffeine, as they can irritate your bladder and aggravate your need to urinate.
    • A heating pad placed over your abdomen can ease pressure and discomfort
    • Once your UTI is treated, take AZO Cranberry tablets to help maintain a healthy urinary tract.

    Suggested Use

    Use at the first sign of a UTI: Urinary pain, burning, urgency, or frequency.

    Easy to use: Simply wet the test pads by holding in your urine stream for 1-2 seconds.

    Easy to read:
    Match the color of the test pads to the color blocks on the foil pouch.

    Before you start the test, gather the materials you need:

    • AZO Test Strips
    • Absorbent material (e.g. paper towel)
    • Timer or watch with a second hand
    • Pen or pencil (optional)
    • Clean, dry cup (optional)

    Read all directions.

    • Wash your genital area thoroughly with soap and water. Rinse with clear water.
    • Remove one test strip from the foil pouch.
    • Do not touch the test pads of the strip. Discard any discolored strips that may have deteriorated.
    • Note: Your results will be more reliable if you test your first urine in the morning or urine held in the bladder for at least 4 hours.

    Simply follow these 3 easy steps...

    Step 1: Apply urine to pads.
    Begin urinating. After some urine has passed, hold the test pads in the urine stream for 1-2 seconds. Make sure both test pads are wetted. (If you prefer, you may collect your urine in a clean, dry cup. Then dip the test strip in the urine.)

    Immediately bring the edge of the test strip into contact with an absorbent material (e.g. paper towel) to remove excess urine. Lay the test strip with the test pads facing upwards on the paper towel.

    Step 2: Begin timing.

    Step 3: Read test results at 1 minute for Nitrite and at 2 minutes for Leukocytes.
    Compare the test pads to the color blocks on the foil pouch. Hold the strip close to the color blocks and carefully match each test pad to the color chart for that test.

    Match the color of each test pad to the color chart for that test. Any amount of uniform pink color on the nitrite test pad is positive (abnormal). Pink spots or pink edges are not a positive result. A positive WBC test will give a dark tan to purple color. (Ignore any color change after you have read the test pads at 2 minutes).

    How to read your test results.
    If you would like, you can record your results to assist you in understanding your results.

    (Example) N = Negative P = Positive

    Use the following table to determine what your test results mean. Remember, they are only one piece of information your doctor needs in order to treat you.

     
    Storage: Store AZO Test Strips at room temperature 59° - 86° F (15° - 30° C) out of direct sunlight. For in vitro (external) diagnostic use.

    Warnings

    Never change or stop taking your medication based on AZO Test Strips results. Only your doctor can confirm the diagnosis of a UTI and advise on treatment.

    Use AZO Test Strips before the expiration date on the bottle. Use each strip only once. Do not leave the bottle open.

    For In Vitro (external) diagnostic use only.

    Ingredients

    Contains 3 individually wrapped test strips.
