    Hi Kelley – yes, a yeast infection with other symptoms would be reason enough to test for diabetes! Yeast are hungry little organisms whose favorite food just happens to be sugar! If you are diabetic you will spill sugar into your urine! The urine can then act as a source of food allowing a yeast infection to take hold! Other factors which might influence your doctor to test you for diabetes might be excess body weight, thirst, frequent urination, hunger and possible weight loss! Age can also be a factor! The test is simple and relatively inexpensive so be grateful that you have a doc who is on top of the situation and looking out for your welfare! If you do have type 2 diabetes, the sooner it is diagnosed, the sooner you can start treatment and the less likely you are to develop serious complications! Good Luck!! Hope its a false alarm!
