In type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) patients, Urinary Tract Infection (UTI) are a frequent complication with a greater incidence and recurrence rate than in the general population. UTIs in T2DM have a complicated pathophysiology that is caused by several variables, including hyperglycemia, diabetic neuropathy, and urinary stasis. Bacterial growth and pathogenicity are encouraged by hyperglycemia, which increase colonization and infection. Successful care of UTIs in people with T2DM necessitates an all-encompassing strategy that tackles the infection as well as underlying causes that led to its occurrence. Even though choosing the right antibiotic based on bacterial culture and sensitivity tests is crucial in people with T2DM due to a higher risk of antibiotic resistant bacteria, antibiotics are the main treatment for UTIs. To avoid potentially fatal consequences including pyelonephritis and sepsis, early detection, and timely treatment of UTIs in people with are crucial. Effective treatment of UTIs in people with T2DM necessities a multidisciplinary strategy that condition’s complicated pathophysiology and associated consequence. Healthcare professionals can lessen the prevalence of UTIs in people with T2DM and enhance their general health outcomes and quality of life by implementing a comprehensive management plan that tackles both the infection and the underlying causes that lead to its development.
