My mother has been getting frequent urinary tract infection
s. The doctor says that for
people her age (80), an antibiotic works for a couple of weeks, then the infection
s comes back. When the infection
recurs, she becomes combative, confused, and very weak. We have decided to have her urine cultured monthly to try to stay on top of this. However, there must be a better way. Mom has alzheimers, but when she is not dealing with the UTI, she is capable. How can
we stem this once and for all?
