What is Urine (Culture) test?
Urine culture is suggested when an infection in the urinary tract is suspected. Generally, urine is sterile, free of microorganisms while in the bladder. Females have more risks of UTIs than men due to a shorter urethra. Urine culture helps to identify the organisms like bacteria causing the infection and helps doctors decide which antibiotics to administer to treat urinary tract infections.
Why get the Urine (Culture) test?
Those with Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs) would feel pain in the loin region and experience difficulties during urination. Infections would be accompanied by an increased urge for urination, cloudy/foul-smelling urine, and other symptoms like fever with chills, nausea, vomiting, and fatigue. The urine culture would be recommended to diagnose a urinary tract infection. Urine culture helps in identifying the organism causing the infection and helps doctors choose the appropriate antibiotic to fight against the infection.
