can eating a lot of foods which are made of yeast cause you to get a yeast infection?

Yeast infections: Eating foods with yeast doesn't give you a yeast infection. However, most foods that contain yeast are carbohydrates, breads, cakes, etc. For people who are predisposed to diabetes or have diabetes, eating a lot of those foods can keep their blood sugar levels elevated. That makes the yeast grow faster. In areas where yeast is already present, like under breasts, groin, vagina, it will overgrow.
