HSV and Type 1 Diabetes

Recommended Posts

This is a great question and I applaud you for wanting to do your research to keep your partner as safe as possible. Because diabetes compromises the immune system, then that puts diabetics at more risk of contracting herpes and also puts their body at a disadvantage of naturally suppressing future outbreaks. So to your specific question, herpes doesn't actually affect diabetes itself, but diabetes affects the immune system, which then makes the body more susceptible to any viruses.
