Abstract

Objective(s): Asymptomatic bacteriuria (ASB) is common among diabetic women. The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence and risk factors for ASB in women with diabetes. Design: Prospective cross-sectional study Setting: Chahar-Mahal province, Iran Subjects and Methods: One hundred women with type 2 diabetes and 100 normal women (control) who had no abnormalities of the urinary tract were recruited. Demographic data and information regarding previous history of urinary tract infections (UTIs), duration of diabetes and presence of pyuria was collected. Baseline serum creatinine and fasting blood sugar levels (FBSL) were measured. Main outcome measure(s): Prevalence and risk factors for ASB in normal and type 2 diabetic women. Intervention: The prevalence of ASB and related risk factors in the two groups and the rate of ASB progressing to symptomatic UTI in a six-month period were evaluated. Results: The prevalence of ASB was 20 in diabetics and 4 in control group (p < 0.05). Pyuria was present in 80 of diabetics with ASB. Symptomatic UTI in previous year was the only risk factor for ASB (p < 0.05). During a follow-up of six months, 40 diabetics with ASB developed to symptomatic UTI. Conclusions: The prevalence of ASB is increased in women with diabetes. We recommend screening for detection and treatment of ASB in diabetic women.
