Lauren: Searching for an Elusive UTI

At only 19, *Lauren began experiencing symptoms consistent with a chronic Urinary Tract Infection (UTI), including urinary incontinence. As a full-time college student, she was discouraged by the extreme difficulty of managing these limiting and embarrassing symptoms. Not only was Lauren’s social life disrupted, but her academic career also suffered tremendously due to the constant pain and other symptoms.

Frustrated and concerned about complications that could arise from a chronic UTI such as permanent kidney damage or sepsis (a potentially life-threatening complication of an infection), Lauren saw several medical professionals hoping they could provide her with a definitive diagnosis, and hopefully, a positive prognosis that would lead to relief from her symptoms. Unfortunately, none of the physicians Lauren sought advice from were able to provide her with answers explaining her illness.

Eventually, Lauren found a doctor who specialized in urinary tract difficulties related to chronic infections. At first, the clinician chose to use testing from other companies, and although she experienced mild improvement, she continued to suffer. The complication was that these tests used older technology such as cultures and older diagnostic techniques like PCR and antibody tests. After more than 6 months of trying older tests, her UTI specialist suggested she try Aperiomics’ Xplore-PATHO infectious disease testing. Finally, she had her answers! Aperiomics’ advanced technology was able to identify the cause of her recurrent UTI and her physician was able to prescribe the appropriate treatment. This treatment of Lauren’s UTI resolved her symptoms and lead to a huge improvement in her quality of life.

“When we got Aperiomics’ results and treated the infections that were found, my problems were resolved and I haven’t had incontinence since then.”
