Older Americans and Urinary Tract Infection

Aging in the Know: Infectious Diseases; Urinary Tract Infection, American Geriatric Society’s Foundation for Health in Aging. ”Urinary tract infection is one of the most common clinical illnesses among older adults, affecting more than 10% of older adults each year. Infections of the urinary tract are much more common in women than men. The biggest risk factors are urinary catheters and conditions that allow harmful organisms from the gut to come in contact with the urinary openings (eg, fecal incontinence).” Recommends drinking at least 10 ounces of cranberry juice each day to help prevent recurrence of urinary tract infections.
