Patients with diabetes have weakened immunity and are prone to severe outcomes of mosquito-borne diseases.[2-5]

  • In diabetes and age-related decline in immunity, patients are prone to severe outcomes of chikungunya and dengue such as increased rates of  dengue haemorrhagic fever, severe dengue symptoms and dengue-related mortality.[2-3]

  • Dengue causes immune dysfunction and severe decrease in platelet count.[2-4] People with diabetes are at 2.5 fold higher risk to develop dengue haemorrhagic fever.[3]

  • Chikungunya is a diabetogenic stress[5] and severely impacts glycemic control in patients with diabetes. It leads to higher risk of intense arthralgia, fever and myalgia, as well as longer time to improve arthralgia and fever. [6]

  • Malaria poses 46% increased risk for severe complications.[7] Loss of consciousness, memory, and functional incapability are common problems reported by diabetes patients.[8]

Your patients with diabetes need protection from mosquito bites when they are outdoors.

Goodknight’s 100% natural Fabric Roll-On provides superior protection from mosquito bites outdoors.

Your prescription has the power to protect.

Recommend Fabric Roll-On to protect your patients against the 3X higher risk of mosquito bites outdoors.[1]


  • Advise your patient to apply four coin-sized dots on clothes before stepping outdoors.
