Is there a link between receiving a greater number of insect bites with type2 diabetes than normal blood glucose levels. I ask this question as I seem to be more susceptible to bites now than before I was diagnosed. In particular Mosquito bites. also concerned on having to many sores produced by these bites. are there any specific risks for someone with diabetes. hence I never go anywhere without a good supply of DEET. anyone else help, experience similar problems.
