Texas: A recent study has found that diabetics have three to five times higher risk of developing tuberculosis (TB) than those without the disease.Researchers at the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth) analyzed 233 patients with TB living in Texas and Mexico along the border to confirm the findings."With the increase in diabetes patients in TB-endemic areas, our findings highlight the re-emerging impact of diabetes mellitus, known as type 2, on TB control in regions of the world where both diseases are prevalent," said Blanca Restrepo, associate professor of epidemiology at The University of Texas School of Public Health.
The study is published in the current issue of the Bulletin of the World Health Organization.ANI
