How does sugar relate to yeast overgrowth?

Dr. Richard Scofield

Helps yeast grow.: High blood sugars are often associated with yeast infections especially in the mouth (thrush) or on the skin (particularly in skin folds such as the axillae, groin creases or under the breasts) or vaginal yeast infections. A key to preventing such infections is to control your blood sugar level.
