Prevalence, Aetiologies, Sensitivity Profile And Factors Associated With Significant Bacteriuria Among Diabetes Mellitus Patients Attending Dodoma Regional Referral Hospital

ABSTRACT

Background: Diabetes mellitus is an independent risk factor for significant bacteriuria and hence severe and non-severe forms of urinary tract infections. There is a considerable regional variation in sensitivity profile of uropathogens in diabetics.

Objectives: To determine prevalence, aetiologies, sensitivity profiles and factors associated with significant bacteriuria among patients with diabetes mellitus attending Dodoma Regional Referral Hospital.

Methods: A case – control study was done at Dodoma Regional Referral Hospital in Dodoma region for over a period of 3 months. Participants were diabetic patients from medical outpatient clinic and variables such as demographics, vital signs and urine for culture and sensitivity were obtained.
