At the present time I have been having urine infections which do not clear up even after being given antibiotics which are shown to be suitable to kill off the bacteria after the sample has been sent to the lab. I have had infections for well over a year and I have been treated constantly since May. I have now been referred to see the urologist but I have read online that an under active thyroid can cause urine infections. I hope this isn't a silly question and I am hoping that there is someone with the knowledge who could tell me if my levels are not correct, could my thyroid be causing this problem. I am up at night every two hours needing to use the toilet and I must say it is really getting to me. I have also been experiencing a very dry mouth at night too. My urine sample shows I have an infection as the white blood cells are raised but it does not show any glucose so diabetes has been dis regarded at the present time.
I am not great at understanding the varying levels and what I should be looking for. I do not know my results I am guided by my GP. If there is someone with the knowledge who could help me with this question, it would be much appreciated.
