The cold-and-flu season is upon us and, let's face it, it's no fun for anyone. But these winter months can be particularly perilous for people with diabetes.
"When you have either type 1 or type 2 diabetes, your immune system is less able to fight infections," explains David Lam, M.D., associate director of the Mount Sinai Diabetes Center in New York City. As a result, you're more likely to get sick—and to suffer complications from what otherwise might be a garden-variety case of the sniffles.
