What additional questions can I answer?
Actually, all UTI's in children and men should be treated too. All UTI in women with functional, metabolic, or anatomical abnormalities, such as obstruction, urinary stone, pregnancy, diabetes, neurogenic bladder, renal insufficiency, or immunosuppression, as well as any UTI a postmenopausal women need to be treated.
