There is evidence that patients with diabetes have an increased risk of urinary tract infections (UTIs). UTI is the most common bacterial infection in diabetic patients. The study included 500 diabetic patients attended at a private urology clinic in Wasit south east of Iraq between January and December 2017. From the total number of patients, 60 had positive urine cultures(12%). The most frequent bacteria involved in UTI was Escherichia coli (70%). We concluded that UTIs are frequent in diabetic patients and urine culture should be performed to give proper antibiotics and to prevent recurrence.
