Vivoo’s UTI box shows the possibility of a Urinary Tract Infection by looking at leukocyte and nitrite parameters in your urine.

What is a Urinary Tract Infection?

A urinary tract infection (UTI) is an infection where part of the urinary tract is affected by bacteria, most commonly Escherichia coli (E. coli).

 

Urinary Tract Infection

UTIs happen when bacteria enter the urethra and infect the urinary tract. The infection can affect several parts of the urinary tract, but the most common type is a bladder infection (cystitis). UTI can easily be detected by urine tests. Urinary tract infections are the second most common type of infection in the human body. UTIs occur more often in women but can affect men, too.

They cause more than 8.1 million visits to health care providers and affect more than 150 million people worldwide every year. Women have a 50% risk of UTIs over their lifetime. Among a generally healthy population, the risk of having an uncomplicated UTI is 50 times higher in adult women than in adult men.

UTI Symptoms & Risk Factors 

There are many factors that can place you at a higher risk of getting a Urinary Tract Infection (UTI). These include:

  • sexual intercourse
  • poor hygiene
  • gender (being female)
  • kidney stones
  • diabetes
  • a weakened immune system
  • pregnancy
  • a previous UTI

When we look at the symptoms of UTIs, the most common ones may include:

  • A burning sensation when urinating
  • Abdominal pain
  • Frequent urge to urinate (but little urine comes out)
  • Increased urgency of urination
  • Fever

Whether you feel any of these symptoms or not, using Vivoo strips will help you to easily detect a UTI in the early stages. Then you will receive advice accordingly.

How does Vivoo detect a UTI?

Urine is a key health indicator for many diseases, mainly urinary tract infections (UTI). Normally, urine contains chemicals called nitrates. When bacteria enter the urinary tract, they reproduce rapidly and convert nitrates into a chemical called nitrites. If there are nitrates in urine, it may mean that you have a UTI.

Urinary Tract Infection

Sometimes urine may contain leukocytes. A leukocyte is a white blood cell (WBC) that is essential for the immune system’s defense against infections. Normally, they do not occur in large numbers in the urine. Higher levels of leukocytes in urine may indicate that your body is trying to fight off an infection somewhere in the urinary tract.

The presence of nitrites and/or leukocytes in the urine usually means that there’s a bacterial infection in the urinary tract. Vivoo strips detect nitrites and leukocytes in urine to measure the possibility of a UTI. Also, if you have any risk of a UTI, the Vivoo application gives you personalized hygiene and nutritional advice to ward off infection.

    1. Hi Jeremy, thank you for your interest in Vivoo. Nitrate and nitrite are different chemicals. Nitrate is a waste that is normally found in the urine. If you have a bacterial urinary tract infection, the bacteria convert nitrate to nitrite.
