Faster UTI urine culture test results possible
« on: January 09, 2020, 07:11:32 am »
People with MS are often susceptible to UTIs, and often have to wait several days for urine culture results before a drug can be prescribed because the drug has to be targeted to the specific bug(s) that you have, and the lab has to wait for the urine culture to grow whatever bacteria are present.  During those days of waiting, the person is quite miserable. Now there may be a quicker way--from DGNews (June 19, 2019)--"Rapid test produces antibiotic susceptibility results directly from urine samples in about 6 hours":
