Author(s): Dr. Anil Kumar Mahto
Abstract: Diabetes mellitus is a major risk factor for urinary tract infections (UTIs) and is also associated with increased risk of certain complicated UTIs such as emphysematous pyelonephritis (EPN), emphysematous pyelitis (EP), emphysematous cystitis (EC), xantho granulomatous pyelonephritis (XGP), renal/perirenal abscess, and renal papillary necrosis (RPN). Such conditions are potentially life-threatening and require prompt evaluation and management. Hence based on above findings the present study was planned for Prevalence of the Urinary Tract Infection in Patients Suffered from Diabetes. Total 50 cases diagnosed with Diabetes who have culture positive UTI were enrolled in the present study. The present study was planned in Department of General Medicine, Lord Buddha Koshi Medical College and Hospital, Saharsa, Bihar, India. The study was conducted from the duration of Jan 2013 to oct 2013. The data generated from the present study concludes that diabetes predisposes humans to the risk of urinary tract infections due to the changes in bladder function and in circulation. The high prevalence of asymptomatic bacteriuria in diabetics, this condition could represent one of the causes leading to an unexplained worsening of the glycosuria in some patients.
