Are you struggling with recurring UTI symptoms?
Have you been taking antibiotics with no resolution for your discomfort?
Does infection recur every few months?
Are you worried about taking so many antibiotics?
DNA urine testing can help!
Did you know that traditional urinalysis testing grows less than 1% of all microorganisms. Clinicians and researchers are now using PCR testing and DNA Next Generation Sequencing to identify complex infections. These tests can identify bacteria, fungi (and viral) infections in the urinary tract.
Acute infections are often caused by a single species or pathogen. Chronic infections are not caused by a single species but by multiple species living in these bacterial biofilms that attach to the bladder wall and the urinary tract. These can be identified and the appropriate antibiotics can be selected with DNA Next Generation Sequencing.
What doctors have to say about this new and very affordable urine testing method.
