I am a diabetic and have been put on levothyroxine .125 mg Starting several days after after taking the drug I developed a yeast infection on my uncircumsised penis.Is it possible that the drug lowered my amune systems ability to keep it in check?
Levothyroxine raises blood sugar levels. For people with diabetes, this may result in an increase in the requirements for insulin or antidiabetes medications. Monitor your blood sugar more closely when starting or changing doses of this medication as you may be more prone to getting yeast infections during this time.
