Relaxed Glycemic Control and the Risk of Infections in Older Adults with Type 2 Diabetes

Older adults with poorly controlled type 2 diabetes (T2D) have a higher risk of infection than patients with good glycemic control. However tight glycemic control (e.g., A1C under 7%) in older adults has other risks. In a longitudinal cohort of T2D patients age 65 and older, we will evaluate the incidence of infections when glycemic control is relaxed to levels recommended by current guidelines.
