ABSTRACT

Urinary tract infection (UTI) is one of the most common infections in the Pakistani local population that afflicts people and if not treated properly and timely could cause serious damages to the urinary tract. Nowadays increasing antibiotic resistance is one of the problems in managing UTI to check the metal resistance of this disease causing organisms. Urine specimens of in-patients and out-patients in Sheikh Zayed Hospital, Lahore were cultured on blood agar and eosin methylene blue agar (EMB). Isolated bacteria were identified according to standard microbiological tests and then subjected to sensitivity testing according to routine method of disk agar diffusion technique and metal resistance on media containing metal salts. Our findings suggest that there is a method to treat the UTI by antibiotics but nowadays antibiotic resistance is increasing day by day. Results of the present study underline the need for sensitivity tests prior to antibiotic therapy in UTI, which could help and guide in proper choosing of antibiotics and effective treatment and therefore prevention of antibiotic resistance.
