Why Are Infections Risky for People With Diabetes?

Diabetes can slow down your body's ability to fight infection. High blood sugar (glucose) leads to high levels of sugar in your body's tissues, allowing bacteria to grow and infections to develop more quickly.
People with diabetes are more adversely affected when they get an infection than someone without the disease, because diabetics have weakened immune defenses
 
What Kinds of Infections Are Diabetics Most Likely to Get?
Common sites of infection are your bladder, kidneys, vagina, gums, feet, and skin.
 
Diagnosing and Treating Infections
A health care provider may perform one or more tests to diagnose infection, including blood tests, microscopic examination of secretions, urine dipstick tests, x-rays and physical examination.
Healthcare providers may prescribe oral or topical antibiotics to treat some infections.
Careful blood sugar control is important during any infection to promote healing and prevent further complications related to the infection.
