People with non-insulin dependent diabetes mellitus have been found to be prone to urinary tract infections. There is a wide gap of information in developing countries regarding the prevalence and antibiotic sensitivity of the pathogens causing urinary tract infections in diabetic patients. Developed nations also face a relatively huge burden of managing urinary tract infections among non-insulin dependent diabetics. The objective of this study was to determine the prevalence and antibiotic sensitivity of bacteria causing urinary tract infections among non-insulin dependent diabetic patients as well as determining the bacterial causative agents of urinary tract infections through biochemical confirmatory tests. The study was carried out in Kisii Teaching and Referral Hospital in Kisii County, Kenya. One hundred and eighty diabetic patients were enrolled in a cross-sectional study design. Clean catch mid stream urine was collected from all participants and cultured in cysteine lactose electrolyte deficient agar for bacteria isolation. The isolates were later cultured in Mueller Hinton for antibiotic sensitivity testing. Classification of a positive culture for urinary tract infection was based on more than 100,000 (≥10colony-forming units of a single bacterial species. All the data was extracted and analyzed with the statistical package for the social science (SPSS) version 20. The data was analyzed using frequencies, chi square (P<0.05) and logic regression to find the odds ratio.
