When my diabetes gets out of whack, I know it.


Because I have diabetes, I know I'm at greater risk for things like yeast infections. Sugar goes up. Yeast goes up. So I keep a close eye on things.
If I get a yeast infection, I go to my doctor to make sure everything is okay
and my sugar levels aren't too out of whack, then I reach for MONISTAT® 7
to stop the yeast infection in its tracks."

Diabetes is a common trigger for yeast overgrowth.

A yeast infection is a common condition caused by an overgrowth of yeast (candida)
that normally lives in the vagina. Your doctor may call this infection "monilia" or
"candidiasis". Some women may have burning and itching on the skin outside the
vagina (vulva) at the same time that they have a vaginal infection.

If you have diabetes and start experiencing the symptoms of a yeast infection,
please call your doctor. Poorly controlled blood sugar levels may be more likely to
result in yeast infections. When you talk with your doctor, review guidelines for keeping
your sugar levels in the controlled range so you can keep your diabetes and your
candida under control. We've provided questions about diabetes and yeast infections
to help you talk with your doctor
and get the dialogue started.
