UTIs are common among all sections of the population. Using the South University Online Library or the Internet, research on UTIs. Based on your research, respond to the following:
- Which segment of the population is more susceptible to UTIs? Why?
- What is the most common agent of UTIs?
- Describe the mechanism of action that can prevent this disease using a natural compound.
As you research your answers for this DQ, think about how common URI’s are in the hospital setting. What makes this such a common disease? What can be done about that. The final question in the DQ, regarding a mechanism, think about what a mechanism is. It is HOW something happens. In this case, we will be talking about the interaction between a part of a microorganism and it’s interaction with a cell membrane on the molecular level.
