YOUR HEALTH


*


Remember that it is extremely important for you to pay particular attention to the health of your feet and, if you do develop diabetic neuropathy, to routinely check yourself for cuts on the bottoms of your feet. Wounds generally do not heal as quickly as if you did not have diabetes, so preventing one from forming is extremely important.


LUNG INFECTIONS AND VACCINATIONS People with diabetes are also at increased risk for developing an infection of the lungs, so you should receive the flu vaccine annually to prevent becoming sick from the flu. The influenza virus (and all infections, really) carry a significant risk of significantly increasing the blood sugars of patients with diabetes. People with diabetes are also at increased risk of death from pneu- monia. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that all people with diabetes receive the pneumonia vaccine as well.
