The study setting was Northern Denmark between 1992 and 2006. We computed odds ratios (ORs) for streptococcal bacteraemia according to diabetes and glycaemic control, using regression analysis for confounder adjustment. RESULTS: We identified 397 adult patients with bacteraemia due to haemolytic streptococci (median age 67 years, 51% women), of which 63 (17%) had diabetes. Persons with diabetes had a 2.1-fold increased risk of streptococcal bacteraemia compared with population controls (adjusted odds ratio (OR) 2.1; 95% confidence interval (CI), 1.5-2.9). For persons with type 1 diabetes, the adjusted OR was 14.8 (2.4-91.2).
