Diabetes and Risk of Infections

Risk of infections in people with diabetes

Can people living with diabetes be at a higher risk of infections? Yes, they can be at a higher risk due to uncontrolled blood sugar levels1. When blood sugar levels go up, it reduces immunity. Increase in blood sugar levels leads to decreased neutrophil function, reduced lymphocyte response and lower cytokine secretion, which in turn causes reduced defence against infections in people with diabetes. Scientific studies also show that people with diabetes are at a higher risk of complications if contracted with an infection.

Controlling blood sugar levels to stay safe and healthy

Controlled blood sugar levels help reduce the risk of infections in people with diabetes. If diabetes is managed well in diabetics who have contracted infections, the risk of getting severely sick is about the same as the general population3. Hence, it is extremely crucial to control blood sugar levels from preventive as well as recovery standpoint. Every person with diabetes has different targeted blood sugar levels, hence it is very important to consult with your doctor to understand your targeted blood sugar levels.
