What risk factors are associated with UTI in T2DM patients?

Insights from a real-world setting, 456,586 T2DM German patients.

In our recently published work we investigated urinary tract infection (UTI) incidence among Type 2 Diabetes mellitus (T2DM) patients in Germany. Moreover, we aimed to identify risk factors associated with UTI incidence/recurrence. A total of 456,586 T2DM- patients were identified. Overall, the UTI event rate was 87.3 events per 1000 patient-years (111.8/55.8 per 1000 patient-years for women/men). Key risk factors associated with UTI risk were older age, female gender, UTIs in the previous two years, number of comorbidities, at least one cystoscopy in the previous year, high HbA1c values in the previous year and a poor kidney function.
