Prevalence and Pathogens of Asymptomatic Bacteriuria in Diabetic Patients: A Gender - Based Study

Aysha Salim [3]


Abstract: The worldwide prevalence of diabetes mellitus (DM) has risen dramatically over the past two decades. Diabetes mellitus (DM) refers to a group of common metabolic disorders that share the phenotype of hyperglycemia. It is associated with decrease in production and utilization of insulin, resulting in body's inability to utilize nutrients properly. People with diabetes are more prone to infections. Asymptomatic bacteriuria (ASB) is the presence of at least 105colony forming units (CFU) per ml of one or more bacterial species in clean - voided midstream urine from a person who does not have any signs of a urinary tract infection (UTI). The goal of this research was to determine the prevalence of ASB in patients with DM according to sex and to study the spectrum of uropathogens causing ASB. This study was conducted ondiabetic patients (50 males and 50 females). This research concluded that among the 100 diabetic patients, 28 of them have asymptomatic bacteriuria. Out of the 28 positive ASB cases, 19 of them were females and 9 of them were males. E. coli was the most common pathogen isolated from urine sample of diabetic patients causing ASB.
