We screened 228 women with diabetes for bacteriuria during the period of January 1997 through December 2000 at Pisa General Hospital (Pisa, Italy). A control group of 146 women without diabetes was also evaluated. The frequency of significant bacteriuria was 17.5% (40 of 228) among women with diabetes and 18.5% (27 of 146) among women in the control group. Seven (13.5%) of 52 and 33 (18.8%) of 176 women with type 1 and in type 2 diabetes, respectively, had significant bacteriuria. The presence of higher glycated hemoglobin levels was the only significant risk factor for significant bacteriuria in women with type 2 diabetes. A similar frequency of bacteriuria in women with and women without diabetes was found. Severe impairment of metabolic control of type 2 diabetes increases the risk of acquiring asymptomatic bacteriuria.

Abstract

We screened 228 women with diabetes for bacteriuria during the period of January 1997 through December 2000 at Pisa General Hospital (Pisa, Italy). A control group of 146 women without diabetes was also evaluated. The frequency of significant bacteriuria was 17.5% (40 of 228) among women with diabetes and 18.5% (27 of 146) among women in the control group. Seven (13.5%) of 52 and 33 (18.8%) of 176 women with type 1 and in type 2 diabetes, respectively, had significant bacteriuria. The presence of higher glycated hemoglobin levels was the only significant risk factor for significant bacteriuria in women with type 2 diabetes. A similar frequency of bacteriuria in women with and women without diabetes was found. Severe impairment of metabolic control of type 2 diabetes increases the risk of acquiring asymptomatic bacteriuria.
