UTI Tracker makes it easy to note symptoms and avoid future infections.
Dr. Dana Rice, a urologist at Inova Fairfax Hospital, has developed a phone app called UTI Tracker for women and men who experience bladder pain and problematic urinary symptoms, including urinary tract infections.
The app features weekly tips and personal advice based on algorithms that track UTI symptoms; a log to keep track of liquids consumed; and a timer to remind you to empty your bladder the recommended two to three hours. The app also provides weekly tips for maintaining urinary health and preventing UTIs.
Dr. Rice explains that we need to be in-tune with our body and symptoms, paying close attention to our bladders. Typical warning signs of complications include cramping below the stomach, burning sensations while urinating, constantly having an urge to urinate or not being able to urinate.
