While women are more likely to experience UTIs, men’s risk of getting a UTI increases as they age. In fact, the population that is most likely to develop a UTI is the elderly. Elderly people are more likely to develop UTIs for several reasons. They are more susceptible to infection, are more likely to suffer from conditions such as diabetes, may use catheters, have an enlarged prostate, and may have mobility issues and or kidney stones all of which increases the risk of developing a UTI.
