Diabetes increases the risk of infective diseases and it is also responsible for more serious complications from an infective illness in comparison to those patients without diabetes. Viral infections like influenza can raise blood glucose levels. Higher rates of Hepatitis B have been reported in patients with diabetes. Pneumonia (lung infection), bacteremia (blood infection), Meningitis (Brain,Spinal Cord) are leading cause of death in patients with diabetes. Some of these infections can be prevented by vaccinations. Several Guidelines recommend vaccinations and immunizations for individuals living with diabetes.
