Hi, I want to know what duration a UTI can take to damage vital organs like the kidney
Expert:  Dr. Y. replied 1 year ago.

A UTI will not chase damage to the kidneys unless it travels up to the kidneys and causes pyelonephritis. If this happens, kidney damage can occur in a few days if left untreated. Hope this helps.
