There are Australians being treated for chronic UTI who have proactively researched the disease and partner with their doctors to treat their embedded infection using antimicrobials, Traditional Chinese Medicine or natural therapies. You can talk to some of these people, and others who are researching and undergoing various therapies, in a number of online support/chat groups for chronic UTI. Please search on Facebook or contact us for a current list.
There are several practitioners specialising in diagnosing and treating chronic UTI who treat international patients. Please see a list of practitioners on our Chronic UTI Practitioner page. Do your own research into costs and diagnostic/treatment processes to see if any of these specialists will match for you.
Unfortunately, Australia is desperately lacking specialist knowledge and treatment for chronic UTI. If you suspect you have a chronic UTI, it will require some research and effort on your part to receive a diagnosis and appropriate treatment. This is far from acceptable and needs to change. However, the most important thing to focus on is being proactive, persistent and positive in striving to find the help you need. It might help you to know that other Australians have achieved this!
