    Hi
    I am a 55 year old male with type 2 diabetes.

    Does anyone suffer with thrush?

    I did - it was a sign of the diabetes - too much sugar in my system. Until I got the sugar levels down it kept returning.

    @dennis181262 . High blood sugar levels can be a cause of thrush.
    What are your BS levels at?

    This is where I fall down because I don’t carry my monitor around with me. I just feel so tired after having a good sleep last night
