10. Infection

Type 2 diabetes is known to impair your body’s natural ability to fight infections. That’s because high blood sugar levels can impair a person’s immune system’s defenses.

The chance of developing infections is higher for those with uncontrolled diabetes. In addition, some long-term effects of diabetes, such as reduced blood flow to the extremities and nerve damage, increase the body’s vulnerability to infection.

When you have diabetes, you’re especially prone to yeast infections, urinary tract infections, foot infections, and surgical site infections. Early treatment of infections can help you prevent more serious complications.

The Diabetes Code Cookbook: Delicious, Healthy, Low-Carb Recipes to Manage Your Insulin and Prevent and Reverse Type 2 Diabetes is one of the best cook books for those who want to learn how to cook healthy.
