Hi, Lemonyfresh....if you are asking if Diabetes can cause oral yeast? Yes, it can be a sign of undiagnosed and/or uncontrolled diabetes. Yeast thrives in a high sugar environment and it is not uncommon for some diabetics to experience thrush (oral yeast). There is a well-perscribed liquid medicine (it's purple and stains your mouth purple but I can't remember the name), that will help resolve the oral yeast symptoms but, if it is high blood sugar causing the yeast problem, then getting your blood sugars in line is what needs to happen.

Have you been diagnosed as Diabetic? Do you monitor your blood sugars? What does your doctor say?

I seem to get thrush whenever I go through a bout of high sugars or have been on antibiotics. I use Mycelex Troches 5 x a day and for 14 days. I get an ongoing Rx from the nurse at my endo's office.

This just seems to be the way that yeast troubles me the most. Nystatin liquid is another med that works well but you need to wait 30 minutes after using these before you eat or drink.

Hope this helps you.

Hi there,
Diflucan(fluconazole)is another useful drug you may try.It comes in both liquid and tablet forms.You may respond to a single dose of Diflucan or you may need to take it longer.In uncontrolled diabetes,the dosage is usually 100 mg once daily for 7-14 days in tablet form.I feel you should see a doctor before following our suggestions.Tight control of Diabetes is essential to prevent recurrent attacks.
