Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to determine whether increased water intake is effective in preventing episodes of uncomplicated urinary tract infections (UTI) in pre-menopausal women suffering from UTI recurrences.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Recurrent Urinary Tract Infection Dietary Supplement: Mineral water Other: Coaching program Other: No intervention Not Applicable

Detailed Description:

This study aims to assess the effect of increased daily water intake on the frequency of clinical, recurrent urinary tract infections (UTI) among low drinking pre-menopausal women suffering from recurrent community-acquired UTI over 12 consecutive months of study product consumption. It is a prospective, single site, open-label, randomised controlled trial in two parallel groups:

  • Control group: not changing their fluid intake habits
  • Intervention group: provided with mineral water, fluid intake recommendations and regular hydration coaching support

The study population consists in pre-menopausal women diagnosed with recurrent UTIs and having a 'low drinker' profile.

The total number of randomized subjects in this study is estimated at 140. The study will include only women who are low-drinkers (< 1.5 L fluids per day; urinary volume < 1.2 L per day) since they are most likely to have a predisposition to UTIs due to infrequent voiding.
