Abstract

BACKGROUND: Urinary tract infections are a common bacterial condition that can affect individuals
of all ages caused by uropathogenic bacteria. OBJECTIVE: To find out the incidence of uropathogenic
bacteria and their antibiotic resistance in people with diabetes and non diabetics at District Mardan.
METHODS: Five-month prospective cross-sectional research work was done at Mardan Medical
Complex, Mardan. Urine samples are taken and subjected to microbiological analysis. Antibiotic
susceptibility was performed through Kirby-Bauer technique. RESULTS: Among the population
urinary tract infections (UTI) were 17.0% with diabetes and 14.0% without diabetes respectively.
Prominent isolated bacteria were E. coli, which accounted for 82.35% of individuals with diabetes and
57.1% of non-diabetes respectively. CONCLUSION: It highlights the importance of detection and
prompt treatment to prevent complications and life-threatening situations associated with the cooccurrence of UTI and diabetes. This study will greatly assist in managing UTIs among the residents of
District Mardan
