Okay my numbers are out of wack & not controlled! I keep getting yeast infections? I looked it up and it says its normal for type 1's because of uncontrolled numbers. Do any of yall girls have this issue? Or have had?

Not just younger girls, but lil' older gals too!

Been there, done that! Couldn't figure out what the problem was. I'd never been bothered much by Yeast Infections before (unless I had taken antibiotics).

This was the first reason my doctor decided to check my blood sugar. All of a sudden, I had a rapidly recurring infection, or should I just say an infection that just would not go away and stay away.

B-I-N-G-O, and Bingo was his name!!!

Now since my blood sugar is under control, no more Bingo! Hoo-Ray!!!!!!!

When your bs isn't controlled, you spill a lot of sugar via urine. Bacteria feed off sugar, which increases the risk of infection. If you control you bs, you shouldn't have a problem

The reason why I knew I had diabetes was because I had a major yeast infection and it was getting too irritating. Found out the reason why I got a yeast infection was because there was too much sugar I was I taking and that's why it kept sending me to the bathroom. Try keeping your bs #s down and maybe it'll help. Drink a lot of water!
