A comparative study to assess clinical and characteristic differences of urinary tract infections between diabetic and non-diabetic patients


Author(s): Dr. Anureet Gill and Dr. Sukhinder Baidwan

Abstract:
Aims: To investigate the clinical and characteristic differences of urinary tract infections between diabetic patients and non-diabetic patients.
Methods: The current research is being carried out at a tertiary care center, for the period of 6 months. There are a total of 50 diabetics and 50 people who do not have diabetes in this study. An exhaustive inquiry and historical assessment were carried out. SPSS, a statistical tool, was used to do the final analysis on the data. The chi square test was used to compare the percentages of participants in the various groups, and the student t test was used to compare the means.
Results: The mean age among diabetic and non-diabetic patients was 56.89±12.56 years and 51.36±11.53 years. The majority of patients will first come with a fever. In both diabetes and non-diabetes, BPH was the most prevalent predisposing factor, and indwelling catheterization was the second most common; however, there was no statistically significant difference between the two. The majority of diabetic patients diagnosed with UTI (87.14 percent) had HbA1C levels that were more than 6.5 percent, and this difference was statistically significant. In diabetics, the incidence of recurrent UTI is greater than in non-diabetic populations; nevertheless, there was no statistically significant difference between the two groups. In both diabetics and those without diabetes, the risk of recurrent UTI is greater in females.
Conclusion: The presence of diabetes, inadequate glycaemic management, fever, and female genital sex were the host variables that were shown to be related with urinary tract infections (UTIs).
