Causes of UTIs for PKD patients

Anyone can get a UTI, but these infections are a particular problem for people with PKD. This is thought to be because the cysts in the kidneys interfere with the normal flow of urine, and even minor delays in the flow increase your chance of an infection. It is also possible that kidney cysts make infections more likely by altering the tissues of the kidneys. Besides, persistent infection in a cyst, a kidney stone and not drinking enough fluid can also be the causes of infections.
