Bacterial infections common in type 1 diabetes

June 30, 2015

A significantly higher risk for bacterial infections was found among people with type 1 diabetes compared with those without diabetes, according to recent study findings published in BMJ Open Diabetes Research & Care.

“Earlier studies have shown an increased risk of bacterial infections in patients with diabetes; however, most of these studies have focused on specific pathogens or specific infection sites such as skin, urinary tract and respiratory infections or severe infection necessitating hospitalization,” the researchers wrote. “Consequently, the overall risk of infectious diseases in patients with diabetes, both severe infections and less severe infections treated outside of hospitals, has not been established.”
