Health Tip: Recognize Signs of a Urinary Tract Infection

(HealthDay News) -- The urinary system is the body's way to rid itself of wastes and extra water.

But the urinary tract also is a common spot for infection (UTI).

While anyone can develop a UTI, about four times as many women develop them as men, the U.S. National Library of Medicine says. You're also at higher risk if you have diabetes, a spinal cord injury or require a tube to empty your bladder.

The agency mentions these common warning signs of a UTI:

  • Pain or burning when you urinate.
  • Fever, tiredness or shakiness.
  • An urge to urinate often.
  • Pressure in the lower belly.
  • Urine that smells bad or looks cloudy or reddish.
  • Pain in the back or side below the ribs.
