WHO: Dr. David Talbott, VP of Physician Education and Quality Assurance for MDLIVE, a leading telehealth network of doctors and therapists.
WHAT: Urinary tract infections affect millions of women every year, and are one of the most common conditions treated by MDLIVE doctors. Typical symptoms include both increased frequency and a burning sensation with urination.
According to Dr. Talbott, there are four things women should know when dealing with a UTI:
1. There are many variables a doctor must consider to correctly diagnose a UTI, including the patient’s symptoms, sexual activity, age, and other medical conditions. Give your doctor as much information as you can to help him or her with a diagnosis.
2. For healthy women between the ages of 18 and 65 suffering from uncomplicated UTIs, help can often be found without having to visit a doctor’s office. Telehealth services are a more convenient and inexpensive way to receive treatment.
3. Follow-ups are extremely important to ensure your symptoms are improving. You should see some improvement in symptoms in 3-5 days.
4. Some preventative measures, like cranberry tablets, drinking a lot of water, and emptying the bladder after sexual intercourse, can help.
WHERE: Men, individuals under the age of 18, and women over the age of 65 who are experiencing the symptoms of a urinary tract infection should visit a doctor. Women between the ages of 18 and 65 who cannot wait days for an appointment or who prefer a more convenient and hassle-free alternative to an office visit can consult with a board-certified doctor at MDLIVE via secure online video, MDLIVE App, or phone. Average wait time is less than 10 minutes.
WHEN: Appointments are available 24/7/365 with an MDLIVE board-certified doctor, and from now thru 5/31/16, MDLIVE is offering $10 off (regular price $49) one’s next consult by entering BYEUTI in the offer code section on the payment screen.
