Yeast infection can frequently appear both in men and women with diabetes. Yeast feeds on glucose, so if you have plenty of it it’s simply perfect for yeast to thrive. As a matter of fact, infections can grow in any kind of warm, moist part of the skin, such as between fingers and toes, under breasts, in or around our intimate organs.
People with type 2 diabetes are more at risk of suffering from yeast infections, mostly because they have more sugar in their system, which disrupts the intimate organs’ balance of bacteria and yeast.
When blood sugar levels are above the roof, the body tries to get rid of the excess sugar through bodily fluids. Yeast feeds from sugar, so it’s the perfect environment for it to multiply and grow.

Interesting article. I have been diagnosed with diabetes for a number of years, and has experienced all the symptoms except slow healing. Glad to miss out on at least one of them.
