Enterobacter aerogenes found in urine culture

Patient : Enterobacter aerogenes found in urine culture when going to doctor for smelly and cloudy urine is it a uti
Doctor :   Hi Thank you for the question, The urinary tract consists of the kidneys, ureters (which connect the kidneys and th e bladder), bladder, and urethra. Urinary tract infections (UTIs) can occur in any part of the urinary tract. Most UTIs are caused by bacteria. They can also be caused by fungi or viruses. UTIs can involve the urethra (urethritis), bladder (cystitis), or kidneys (pyelonephritis). When the kidneys are involved, UTIs can be life threatening. Their symptoms include: -burning with urination -increased frequency of urination with scant amounts of urine being passed -bloody urine -cloudy urine -urine that looks like cola or tea -strong odor to urine -pelvic pain (women) -rectal pain (men). Here are a few tips: -wiping from front to back after urinating or having a bowel movement -drinking six to eight glasses of water daily -drinking water after having sex -not holding urine for long periods of time -cleaning your vaginal and rectal areas daily -taking showers instead of baths -wearing comfortable underwear, tight fabric traps moisture -wearing underpants with a cotton crotch. Seek medical attention if you have any of these symptoms. I hope this will help you. Get well soon.
