When your blood sugar is abnormally high, you will easily contract certain illnesses and diseases. Therefore, the boils that you are experiencing is most likely due to your elevated blood glucose. Your doctor should treat your diabetes to get your blood glucose under control and prescribe a course of antibiotics for the boils.
