Overview

Uncontrolled diabetes are more likely to get oral thrush, because the extra glucose in saliva acts as a substrate for Candida. High doses of antibiotics or extended use of antibiotics also increases the risk of oral thrush. Antibiotics kill bacterial flora that compete with candida. People with poorly fitting dentures are also more likely to get thrush.
