Study links diabetics to increased risk of urinary tract infections

In a research covering 218 diabetic patients and 799 non-diabetic women volunteers in the age group of 55-75 yrs//, scientists of Epidemiologic Research and Information Center, Seattle, US had said that being diabetic increases the risk of having a urinary tract infection for women who have had their menopause.

The researchers have done two annual follow up of testing for hemoglobin A1c, urine culture, residual bladder volume and diabetes and other characteristics. This was supported by self-reports given for UTI checks that were followed up by microbiologic culture and medical record review.

The incidence of urinary tract infection for diabetic women was 12.22 per 100 person-year, while that of non-diabetic women was 6.7. Increased urinary infection risk was seen mainly in women taking insulin and those with longer history of diabetes in comparison to normal healthy post menopause women. Even the incidence of being affected by asymptomatic bacteriuria seems to be more for postmenopausal women with diabetes than those who are not suffering from it.

Researchers thus are of opinion that women after their menopause, if are suffering from blood sugar problems, then they need to be more careful with their diet and personal hygiene as they are more prone to urinary tract infection.
