Yeast : Yeast infections are extremely uncomfortable and can even be painful. Elevated blood sugar readings are definitely a risk factor for recurrent yeast infections. Your doctor should ensure that your blood sugar is under control. You probably already avoid sugary drinks or sweets with your diabetes. To help yeast infections, after your shower dry your vaginal area very thoroughly. Avoid baths (yeast grow best in warm, moist environments). Wear cotton underwear instead of nylon. If you have any concern for other vaginal infections, your doctor should test you. Please see your doctor again to be sure your glucose is under control and to be sure they understand your concern for your constant yeast infections.
