Pus in urine means urinary tract infection
( UTI ).
Urinary tract infection (UTI) has long been recognized as a significant problem in patients with diabetes mellitus
(DM) that occurs both in males and females of all age groups.
Patients with Diabetes acquire urinary tract infections (UTIs) very often because hyperglycemia
(high blood sugar) results in increase sugar in the urine and becomes a friendly environment for the bacterial cultures to grow. Age, poor metabolic control, duration of DM, recurrent Vaginitis
etc may play a major role in the higher incidence of UTI in diabetic patients.
Milder infections called Cystitis tend to be restricted to the bladder, while more severe infections tend to spread to the kidney(s) called as Pyelonephritis
. UTI in diabetic patients is not only more severe but also is more recurrent when compared to non-diabetic patients.
