Avoid sugar: And wheat, take good probiotics on a daily basis, and see a doctor that can help rebalance your intestinal (and vaginal) flora. Eating coconut oil (which has the anti-fungal lauric acid) can also help. Improving your diet will help both the yeast infections and the diabetes (which is reversible). Look at the body ecology book, or other classic anti-yeast diet books.

Control: The more closely the diabetes is controlled the less like you are to haver any infections, including yeast.
