Abstract

In the present article authors discuss the matter of urinary tract infections (UTIs) as a serious problem in diabetic patients associated with the high risk factor for acute pyelonephritis and progression of renal insufficiency. The article presents the major differences in development of UTIs in diabetes - clinical dysfunctions in urinary tract, etiology, treatment and prophylactic procedures in case of recurrent UTIs. Authors indicate that the most important case in clinical treatment of UTIs in diabetic patients is prolonged antibiotic therapy and maintaining of euglycemia. Moreover, the dose and duration of antibiotic treatment should be adequate to renal insufficiency and probability of occurrence of antibiotic resistant microorganisms.
