laughingduck, to answer your q...
i'm not big into sweets and sugars, so i do live on a very low sugar diet. however... i do love my carbs and have a tough time staying away from those
i know, i'm terrible
anyway, yes, my yeast issues are so bad, i thought i had diabetes maybe (runs in my family and i have many metabolic-type symptoms + kidney damage, very hypoglycemic, can even get somewhat violent or get slurred speech when i don't eat for a while)!... my doc once told me too that recurrent yeast infections in women can often be a sign of diabetes. i don't think i was ever properly tested for it though, strangely! but i don't have insurance, so i just go on with my life thinking that it most likely is not diabetes... But yeast infections are NOT the only infections i live with, mind you... I have recurrent infections all over my body. Always have yeast infections, sinus infections, bladder infections, kidney infections, respiratory infections, ear infections, etc.!
