Do diabetics have any different of a chance of getting

Patient: Do diabetics have any different of a chance of getting HIV/AIDS than non diabetics?

Doctor: HelloThank you posting your query on “Ask the Doctor”As HIV infection is communicable through unprotected sex, in , infected blood and fomites that carries blood, it requires mode of transmission to spread of disease. Being diabetic or non-diabetic are is equally susceptible, if they have high-risk behaviour. Being diabetic by no means has a chance to develop HIV by its own.But sharing insulin needle and syringes with other has a greater risk of HIV transmission.It was found that HIV positive persons have more chances of developing diabetes but not vise versa.Hope this will be useful to you.
