Risk factors for UTI in postmenopausal women include all of the following, EXCEPT:

A. Atrophic vaginitis
B. UTI before menopause
C. Non-secretor status

Correct Answer is D


Answer D

In older, often-institutionalised female patients, urinary tract catheterisation and functional status deterioration appear to be the most important risk factors associated with UTI. The other risk factors include non-secretor status of blood group antigens, UTIs before menopause, urinary incontinence, atrophic vaginitis, cystocele and large post-voiding residual urine.
