Abstract

Urinary tract infections and asymptomatic bacteriuria, are more frequent in diabetic patients, especially in those with type 2 diabetes, than in subjects without diabetes. Diabetic people are more risked than persons without diabetes for acute infections of upper urinary tract (pyelonephritis). Some investigators, on the other hand, observed that signs and symptoms of these infections are more severe in diabetics than in non-diabetic people [6–8]. Urinary tract infections can cause severe kidney injuries and, consequently, can lead to chronic kidney disease (chronic renal insufficiency). Concerning pathological mechanisms that explain urinary tract infections and asymptomatic bacteriuria, they are numerous. So, the presence of glucose in urine favours increase and multiplication of miscellaneous pathological microbes .
