Is there anything I can do or take to boost my immunity? I have diabetes and am taking metformin, but i've been getting infections that continue.

You : You can consider changing the time of day that you take it, although first check with your doctor. First, keep a diary of what time you take it, and how closely you ate when taking it and what you ate. Then see if there is a pattern.

You can also try to notice if it is worse if you are constipated, then aggressively treat the constipation if so (with stool softeners or suppositories). ...Read more
