ABSTRACT

Urinary tract infection (UTI) is a common infection observed in diabetic patients. We have evaluated urine samples from one hundred diabetic patients suspected of having UTI. All urine samples were processed in the laboratory following standard laboratory protocol. Occurrence of UTI in diabetic patients was found to be 37% and it was more common in diabetic females (43%) than males (30%), with the predominant age group of 41-50 years. The most common organism isolated was Esherichia coli (56.75%) followed by Klebsiella pneumoniae (38%), Proteus mirabilis (5.4%) and Citrobacter species (2.7%). On performing antibiotic sensitivity testing, Amikacin was found to be the most effective antimicrobial while Ampicillin remained the least effective agent against the isolated urinary pathogens.

Keywords: Urinary tract infection, diabetic patients, antibiotic sensitivity.
