I get UTI's all the time. When I think I have one, I do the AZO Test Strip at home and if it turns purple, I call my NP and tell him I know I have a UTI based off the AZO Test and he calls in an Rx for me. I've had them so many times, it's just easier for everyone if I do that test at home and they call in the Rx rather than me driving to their office.
I'm sure people with compromised immune systems are more apt to get UTI's. And then as a Female Crohnie, it is MUCH, MUCH, MUCH MORE likely to get UTI's because of the D and the closeness of our bum to our urinary tract.
