It is a known fact that diabetic patients are at higher risk for various infections than nondiabetic patients.
Besides generalized impairments of immunity, other nonimmunologic, anatomically specific factors may contribute to an increased infection risk. Macrovascular disease and microvascular dysfunction
may result in compromised local circulation leading to delayed response to infection and impaired wound healing
Unawareness of lower extremity trauma due to sensory neuropathy may result in inadequate attention to minor wounds and subsequent increased infection risk.
Incomplete bladder emptying due to autonomic neuropathy permits urinary colonization by microorganisms and high glucose
concentration in the urine promotes the unhindered growth of bacteria resulting in various types of genito- urinary tract
Treatment lies in ....
....Adequate and meticulous control of blood sugar levels with injectable insulins.
....Proper anti biotic therapy,after culture and sensitivity report,for proper amount of time.
....In case of genitiourinary tract infection,prolonged anti biotic therapy.
