  • Furthermore, lactic acid concentrations in urine from patients who had pyelonephritis gradually declined after the initiation of therapy, attaining a level of less than 1 mg/dl by the end of the treatment.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Diagnosis and Treatment The diagnosis of UTI can be made by analysing the mainstream urine and blood count. Pelvic ultrasound, intravenous pyelogram and cystoscopy can help to confirm the diagnosis. Antibiotics form the mainstay of treatment of UTI.[differencebetween.net]
