Answer by  harmonyrn (31)

Higher than normal blood glucose levels can increase the occurrence of yeast infections as it provides an optimum environment for yeast growth. Keeping your blood sugar level within normal range on a consistent basis using frequent glucose testing, as well as diligently practicing good hygiene, can help diminish the occurrence of yeast infections in diabetics.

Yes, unfortunately. Chronic yeast infections are a good sign that your sugar levels are not under control. Although over the counter treatments are now available for the yeast infections. It is imperative for you to keep your blood sugar at an acceptable level so you do not suffer more serious systemic damage.
