Abstract

The presence of chronic inflammatory lesions in patients with diabetes has a negative effect on the course of the disease. Tonsillectomy due to chronic tonsillit is in the short-term observation leads to improved metabolic control in patients with type 1 diabetes. In this study it was decided to assess the long-term results of metabolic control and markers of inflammation in patients with type 1 diabetes who underwent tonsillectomy for chronic purulent tonsillitis. The study was performed in 56 patients, with mean age 27.2 ± 7.7 years and duration of diabetes: 8.7 ± 7.0 years, who had tonsillectomy before at least a year. Long-term results showed significantly lower HbA1c after tonsillectomy than before: 8.58 ± 1.69% vs. 7.98 ± 1.45%, p = 0,025. This beneficial effect of tonsillectomy on the parameters of glycemic control is justified to recommend the elimination of inflammatory foci in people with diabetes.
