Abstract:

Urinary Tract Infection (UTI) is an inflammatory response of the urothelium to bacterial invasion that is usually associated with bacteriuria and pyuria. UTI is upto three times more common in diabetic than in non- diabetic women and increases with age. Urine from 60 diabetic patients with UTI was collected and subjected to Gram staining, culture & sensitivity by routine methods. Among Diabetic patients, the males constituted 51.66% and were predominant. The maximum number of isolates was present in 51-60yrs with 35% and next was 41-50yrs age group with 20%.In Diabetes mellitus, E. coli was the predominant isolate with 36.6% followed by Klebsiella spp, Pseudomonas spp & Acinetobacter spp. In Diabetes patients, Imipenem, Amikacin and Nitrofurantoin had greater sensitivity than other antibiotics. In Gram positive cocci isolated from Diabetic patients, Amikacin and cephalexin had a greater sensitivity. This alarmingly high resistance rate has to be approached cautiously, by formulating an antibiotic drug policy. This has to include giving effective drugs after the culture & sensitivity and ensuring that the patients receive full course of antibiotics.
