Abstract

Several infectious diseases are strongly associated with diabetes, whereas others are more complicated or severe in the presence of diabetes. This article reviews the infectious diseases unique to or more complicated in patients with diabetes and offers therapy recommendations for each. Patients with diabetes appear to be at greater risk for a number of different kinds of infections. Good data delineating the risk of specific infections are lacking. Conflicting data exist on carriage rates of Staphylococcus aureus and risk of specific staphylococcal infections. 1-3 This article will cover several serious infections that are strongly associated with diabetes.
