Diagnosis and Symptoms

Question from Chicago, Illinois, USA:

Does constant boils mean diabetes?

Answer:

The constant presence of boils does not mean diabetes. However, if you are at high risk for diabetes, and you have this problem, I would consider it reasonable to have your fasting glucose checked by your physician.
