What are some of the common causes of UTI? Is it true that diabetics are more prone to UTI?

Not so sure about the diabetic, but if you always hold your pee, wiping back to front instead of front to back and sex on a full bladder are some of the common causes of uti

its bacteria in the urethra that builds up causing an infection. Aside from Mama Joy's post diabetic women, pregnant women and menopausal women are prone to UTI.

oh man! uti can be a pain literally! I am not diabetic but the last time I had uti was because kept holding off going to the bathroom!

Who hasn't had an episode of UTI? I try to drink so that I can pee all the time to flush the bacteria out but it is uncomfortable and very painful at times. A course of antibiotics usually works.

maybe you wipe from the back to the front and not front to back. When you do the later, there is a danger that some bacteria from the anus goes to your vagina or urinary tract causing an infection. always remember to wipe front to back

used to get UTI when I had sex on a full bladder. Now I make it a habit to go before I do the deed!!!

my friend told me one of the causes is drinking too many juice/soda and other sweet drinks
