Clinical assessment of the urinary tract infection in patients diagnosed with type 2 diabetes


Dr. Ashok Kumar, Dr. Satyam Mohan

DM and urinary tract infections are closely associated with each other for over centuries. The incidence of UTIs is high in DM due to the change in the host defence mechanism, a microvascular disease in the kidney and the presence of diabetic cystopathy. High glucose concentrations in urine flow allow urinary colonization microorganisms. Incidence of UTIs is associated with various factors like age, duration of diabetes, sexual intercourse, glycaemic control and complications of diabetes. Hence based on above findings the present study was planned for Clinical Assessment of the Urinary Tract Infection in Patients Diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes. The present study was planned in Department of General Medicine, IGIMS, Patna, Bihar, India. Total 30 cases of the patients suffered from the diabetes and found positive for the UTI infections were enrolled in the present study. All the patients were informed consents. The aim and the objective of the present study were conveyed to them. Approval of the institutional ethical committee was taken prior to conduct of this study. The data generated from the present study concludes that the patients are at high risk with UTIs with uncontrolled glucose levels in type 2 DM patients. Therefore, continuous screening for UTIs among Type 2 DM patients is recommended to reduce the further complications.
