Work with urologists: Urinary frequency, especially in older patients, can have many causes: infectious, neurologic, or urodynamic. This often requires careful evaluation and treatment. If it is related to infection, optimal treatment of a UTI includes identification of the bacteria, determining which antibiotics it is susceptible to, and undergoing a full course of treatment. But other causes must be addressed.
