question about reoccuring uti's and testing
Hi..I have been on antibiotics for like a month straight for the UTI that wont go away...the thing of it is..im not doing anything that the dr's say would attribute to a uti..baths..sex..etc...anyway..the dr had me do a 24 hour urine collection..which may i add was terrible..i asked her why she was doing it, if it had nothing to do with the uti's..she had said somthing about protein in my urine..and left it at that...no explanation really...so yet again im confused...has anyone had this before..or heard of it...whether it be the reason for testing..just anything to help explain...thanks..o im 27 weeks pregnant

I have to do that lovely test every 6mos due to kidney problems. The 24hr test gives the dr a lot more info than just a random pee in a cup test. It gives a full kidney function, input, output, etc. It will also show how much protein is being passed, which is important. I always have protein and blood in my urine, that is why I have to test so often. Many different things can cause this and the levels that show up on the 24 will help them to find the source and a cure :)

Sometimes drs do a 24 hr urine to test for pre-eclampsia. Have you had high blood pressure, headaches or swelling? High protein in urine is a sign of pre-eclampsia. Ask your doc more questions when you turn in your sample.
