In brief: Risk increased

Diabetics have increased risk from infections due to the systemic effects of diabetes.
However, an increased risk does not mean that you personally will get complications, and many diabetics do very well with standard treatment. It's always a good idea to monitor your blood sugars more frequently when you are sick.
