Risk Factors

Avatar Dr. Kyle Bickel Jun 21, 2019

Bell’s Palsy in general is more likely to develop in immuno-incompetent patients or people with immune problems. This ranges from people who don’t take care of themselves, people who are massively stressed, have consistently high cortisol levels, and most commonly would happen to diabetics. Diabetics (because of the high glucose level, if it’s not maintained) do have a poorer immune response than other patients do.
