I have had diabetes for 8 years now. I have unfortunately had severe sepsis twice with long HDU/ICU stays. I do suffer from eczema and prone to foot/leg ulcers. Every time I visit my GP I seem to be on long courses of antibiotics for some infection. Now just looking at posters in my GP’s surgery or hospitals I see posters from the NHS and the WHO about the overuse of antibiotics causing resistance. Are diabetic patients at risk of antibiotic-resistance due to constant prescribing of necessary medications to treat infections ? Does this make diabetics more susceptible to Sepsis due to regular uses of antibiotics ? I would like to hear from anyone especially health professionals. Thanks Edward
