Abstract

Objective: To study whether a particular type of diet predisposes to Urinary Tract Infections (UTI). Patients and method: The questionnaire method was used to retrospectively evaluate 61 'Uncomplicated UTI' patients with 'Isolated Infections'. Twenty-six of them volunteered to give the details about their diet. Result: Of the 26 patients, UTI was significantly more common among the people consuming meat more frequently than once a week but not daily (among men P<0.02 and women P<0.005, by Binomial test). Conclusion: A specific predisposing factor was present in almost half the number of patients who had UTI. Frequent meat consumption appears to be one of them. More research is needed.
