Important note: See your doctor straight away if you have flu-like symptoms or are vomiting, have a raised temperature, are confused or very drowsy, have kidney pain in your back just under the ribs or have any other unusual symptoms as these could be signs of a more serious infection.
In case you have UTI, Dip UTI will instruct you to go to the pharmacy to get diagnosed and most likely you’ll receive common antibiotics. Therefore, Dip UTI is also not suitable for women allergic to both Nitrofurantoin and Trimethoprim.
Conducting the Dip UTI test requires the use of a smartphone. Therefore, Dip UTI is supported on any Android or iOS smartphone device running one of the last three operating system versions. Check if your smartphone is compatible here.
