adult diapers: can they track UTIs? Divakaran Dileep/PhotoSpin

Medical personnel and family may not realize that their loved one has an additional medical issue. This again increases the likelihood of an untreated UTI that could possibly lead to damaged kidneys.

Anyone with the symptoms described should call their doctor straight away for an evaluation.
