People who suffer from high blood sugar are prone to the danger and possibility of incurring yeast infection. In order to cure yeast infection problems, high blood sugar conditions must be resolved first. The higher the sugar content is, the more vulnerable the body is in catching yeast infection.
Diabetes, as an example, is a disease that is disposed to any kind of infection, most specially thrush. Yeast infection latches on contently to bodies with high blood sugar content. Carbohydrates, as well as sweets, are very high in sugar. Even if diabetics try to cut down on sweets, it would still be quite difficult for them lower down their blood’s sugar content. To control yeast infection, you must bring down body, and this can be done by doing the following.
• Consult a medical practitioner. A good practitioner can provide you with an exercise and diet plan.
• Be careful about what you eat. Your intake of sugar, carbohydrates, fats, and other starch form should be in moderation.
• In case of injury including minor ones, you must seek immediate assistance. Injury along with the resulting moistness in specific areas can magnify the possibility of catching yeast infection.
• When trying to bring down the blood sugar level, do so with the guidance of a practitioner. Never overdo it. Extreme drop in sugar level can be dangerous leading to coma or death.
• High blood sugar content can be dealt with at the same time as treating yeast infection. However, for effective prevention of infection, it is best to pay attention to your blood sugar content.
Diabetes cannot be treated alone by regular medication, especially if it starts building up other problems like yeast infection. In order to break the connection between these two, take on a holistic approach as a way to treat infection.
For long time now medical experts have been connecting yeast infections with the presence of diabetes but until now diabetic men and women do not actually know what makes being a diabetic can make them prone to frequent attacks of thrush and vaginal yeast infections. In order to understand better the link between having high blood sugar level to having yeast infections, we must understand the complexities of diabetes first before finally arriving to the outcome of yeast infections.
Diabetes can be inherited or sometimes can be inflicted because of poor lifestyle and bad eating habits. As we know if our parents or one of our parents is diabetic and we do have bad habits and poor eating conditions, the chance of having diabetes is very high. Diabetics have always high glucose content in their blood which we call hyperglycemia. Because the insulin in their blood is not normal they urinate frequently. However, some of the sugar that comes from their urine can accumulate in the vagina, which then serves as the growing media for the Candida yeasts.
When the yeasts are always supplemented with high glucose due to frequent urination they can multiply rapidly and create havoc within their growing areas and then infect areas of the body that are constantly moist and full of other harmful organisms. This is why vaginal yeast infections in women and thrush in men are common. Symptoms of vaginal yeast infections include itching, swelling, redness and discharge of curd like mucous from the vagina. Thrush symptoms show up as scaly raised skins near the mouth areas of men and then manifest as lesions on the tongue, inside the cheeks and then lesions to the esophagus.
Unfortunately, the bodies of the diabetics do not have the chance to fight off frequent infections because their immune systems are not in normal conditions. In this way, no effective treatment can cure yeast infections until the hyperglycemia of the diabetics is brought down to normal level. Symptoms of infection will be recurrent and to treat mild infections topical remedies and treatment can only provide temporary relief. The prescription of the doctor, nevertheless, may give treatment to the problem.
