Diabetic Thrush can be caused by a High Level of Blood Sugar

 

One of the most common causes of diabetic thrush can be a high level of blood sugar. Thrush could also be caused due to weak immune system. It is observed that people with diabetes have poor immune system, which makes them highly vulnerable to different types of yeast infections. If diabetes is the underlying cause of thrush or yeast infection, then regardless of where it occurs on the body the condition is termed as diabetic thrush.

Diabetes refers to the condition whereby the patient’s body does not anymore have the ability to control the glucose levels in the body. If the glucose levels are not controlled then it could prove to be lethal. It has been observed that there is a direct link between diabetes and thrush.

Almost all of us have the microorganism that causes yeast infection or thrush and it is usually present in the digestive tract, mouth and different parts of the skin. However, our body’s immune system is designed to keep the harmful microorganism under control.

One of the symptoms of diabetes is dry mouth because of the insufficient production of the saliva. This creates a conducive environment for an outbreak of yeast infection in the mouth. In number of cases, yeast infections or oral thrush is often considered an initial symptom of diabetes. If timely medical intervention is not sought the yeast infection could lead to advanced conditions such as chronic thrush.

Therefore if you are a diabetic patient then it is important to keep the risks of diabetic thrush under check. It is important to boost your body’s immune system. Besides other oral hygiene practices putting yourself through regular cycles of detox supplements that will purge your body of harmful microorganisms, recondition your digestive tract and boost your body’s overall immune system.

When it comes to diabetic thrush treatment, prevention is more effective than cure. It is best to take preventive measures to protect yourself from yeast infections if you are a diabetic patient. Do not wait for the onset of the yeast infection to start taking measures. Diabetes being one of the most common causes of oral thrush, you should anticipate such infections once you are diagnosed for diabetes and keep your body’s immune system at optimum levels by taking suitable preventive measures including the use of detox supplements.

Weakened Immune System

One of the reasons why Candida overgrowth becomes a challenging condition to be dealt with is that it affects your immune system. When your body’s immune system is weakened, it creates a further favourable condition for the Candida yeast to grow, which in turn creates a vicious circle.
