Diabetics at Higher Risk for Fungal Infections

People with diabetes have an elevated risk of fungal infections due to higher blood sugar levels. Common signs of fungal infections include lesions in the mouth or redness and itching in the vulva. Treatment for fungal infections include topical treatments and oral anti-fungal medications.

Diabetes is a complicated health condition that can lead to many complications, such as heart disease, chronic kidney disease, and fungal infections. According to research journal publisher Hindawi, 25 million people in the world are at high risk of dying due to fungal infections. Dr. B.M. Makkar, Senior Diabetologist and President of the Research Society for the Study of Diabetes in India, explains that people with diabetes are more prone to fungal infections due to metabolic disorder, immune-related dysfunctions, and several organ disorders. Fungal infections can occur in the mouth, armpits, blood, vagina, and area under the breasts. Symptoms include a bitter taste in the mouth, lesions on the tongue, lips, or back of the mouth, and cracks at the corners of the lips. Common signs of fungal infections in women include burning, itching, and redness in the vulva. Treatment for fungal infections include topical treatments and oral anti-fungal medications. The best way to minimize the risks of fungal infections is to maintain a healthy blood sugar level.
