Customer Question

I have just had my 3rd UTI in the past 6 months or so, with Proteus Miribilis as culture. After Antibiotic use, I came down with thrush in my espophagus and upper tummy.
My question is, I seam not to get rid of this proteus miribilis infection, should I have some testing done to look int this?

Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Yes you should.

Proteus mirabilis infection suggests likely kidney stone --struvite stone precisely.

Recurrent infection raises that possibility.

You should get a kidney ultrasound at least.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.
