No one really knows for sure why the incidence of infections is increasing sorapidly.Since most of us are only aware of yeast when we get a vaginal infection, many people dontrealize that over 10,000 people in the United States die each year from fungal infections causedby the same organism that makes our crotches itch and burn.The yeast that is responsible for vaginal infections and oral thrush is a tiny fungus called Candidaalbicans. Occasionally, a yeast infection is caused by a form of Candida yeast other than thecommon C. albicans. These yeasts include C. dubliniensi and C. stellatoidea. Tests can be doneto determine what type of yeast is causing an infection, but infections by yeasts other thanCandida albicans are rare.Candida is the most common type of fungal infection in humans, and it can lead to serious healthproblems for some people. A yeast infection can even be deadly in people with compromisedimmune systems. For this reason, any woman who gets the symptoms of a yeast infection whilereceiving chemotherapy treatment for cancer should seek medical attention as soon as possible.There are four common causes of yeast infections:1.The balance of power between bacteria and yeast is disturbed. Bacteria help us by keeping theyeast in check, so if the bacteria are killed, a yeast population can explode out of control.This can happen when antibiotics are used during an illness. A diet high in refined sugars andother carbohydrates can also upset the balance by favoring the growth of yeast and inhibiting the
  2. 2. growth of bacteria. This imbalance can lead to a yeast infection in the mouth or vagina.2.Changing hormone balances, (due to pregnancy, hormone replacement therapy duringmenopause, and oral contraceptives), can create the right conditions for a yeast infection.3.Yeast infections can also occur when the patients immune system is compromised by an HIVinfection, chemotherapy or radiation treatment, Lyme disease or organ transplant. Steroids canalso slow the immune response and allow a yeast infection to take hold.4.And finally, chronic yeast infections can be a symptom of a more serious underlying illness, suchas diabetes, thyroid disorder, leukemia or AIDS. If your yeast infection keeps coming back, askyour doctor for a complete exam to rule out any underlying cause.Unfortunately, the symptoms of vaginal yeast infections are very similar to other conditions thatare caused by bacteria and parasites. While yeast infections are not usually dangerous in womenwith intact immune systems, a bacterial infection can cause permanent damage to yourreproductive organs, and must be treated promptly.This is why it is so important to get a medical diagnosis, even if youve had a yeast infectionbefore. Its also the reason why you should be very careful before treating an infection on yourown - up to two-thirds of the women who purchase over-the counter medications for yeastinfections actually have a bacterial infection instead, and the anti-fungal medication wont do anygood. In fact, using anti-fungal medications when you dont need to can make future yeastinfections more difficult to treat.To make matters even more complicated, some "natural" cures for yeast infections that you findon the Internet can actually push a bacterial infection up into your uterus and fallopian tubes,where it can cause permanent damage. For this reason, its important to learn as much as you canabout vaginal yeast infections, and the other types of conditions that look just the same, but needto be treated differently.Vaginal infections aren’t the most exciting subject in the world, but it’s important to be informedso you can make good decisions about your health.
