Type 1 diabetes: Do you experience frequent bladder and yeast infections?
This one's kinda for the ladies, but I don't know maybe guy diabetics have this problem too? Do y'all experience frequent bladder and yeast infections? If so have you found anything that helps? Thanks
Diflucan. I have a never ending script for it.
Not sure of the spelling.
Ok thank u****I'll have to try that.
blood sugar control ore lack thereof causes yeast infections.
Monastat cream found at walmart
Story of my life! I take diflucan at least once a week and a steroid like cream for the outside. The gives me a script for both. Nothing over the counter seems to work for me.
I eat yogurt for a snack everyday to keep the yeast infection from returning. Also, drink lots of water & get some vitamins w/cranberry in it. But yes high blood sugars do cause infections.
Diflucan and monist at cream on the outside and yogurt are the best treatments for yeast.
Yoghurt helps a lot

Never got one while I have been on insulin
Get it for
Feel like the worst m in the world right now! Let my husband take the kids to dinner and a movie, gave my 7 yr old her insulin... 3 hrs later it was at 'high' rechecked and it was at 541! Feel like crap! Didn't calculate her carbs that well! :(
So, does anyone have a favorite app or website that they use for their diabetes? I'm always looking for useful tools to help me manage, and any suggestions would be welcome!
Any of you have used the dexcom or freestyle flash? which problems did you find? thank you
Anyone have suggestions for where to place a Dexcom cgm sensor? I would normally use my abdomen, but because of pump sites, it's pretty beat up there. Has anyone tried the back of the arm? The idea freaks me out but I may try it.
Traveling to Chicago (staying at ohare. My backpack with insulin infusion site and syringe to fill pump got run over and crushed as I got out of a Cab. Can anyone help?
Vomitting.extreme nause. Large ketones. Fruity/acetone breath. Mom won't call doc, thinks it's my fault. Haven't eaten besides some steak and water for 2 days. Pee a lot and lost about 7 pounds. Help
I feel like I wanna die because of my diabetes how do I stop thinking that 😢
In the endos office, and the resident just told me my symptoms are because of my "poorly controlled" diabetes. Lol She then went quiet when endo came in and we discussed my regime, adj & fine tuning
Hi everyone, I'm looking to get a new pump (currently using OmniPod, not happy with performance). Any recommendations or info on t-slim g4 or animas vibe?
I started Juicing in Feb. 2013 and in Sept. was told I was no longer diabetic. So I asked the Dr. Was he sure and he said Yes. So I was confused and shocked, so I asked him do I need to continue testing and his response was No you don't need to test at all. Months later & I'm confused. Not sure.
