Research shows diabetes patients more prone to serious infections

from News-Medical

Diabetes patients have an increased risk of suffering serious infections or death compared to the general public, new research has shown. The study analyzed the electronic GP and hospital records of more than 100,000 English adults aged 40 to 89 years with a diabetes diagnosis, and compared them to those without a diabetes diagnosis. The researchers estimated that 6 percent of infection-related hospital admissions, such as for pneumonia, and 12 percent of infection-related deaths among adults could be attributed to diabetes. more
