While it is appropriate for the PA to consider both HIV and diabetes since thrush is seen at increased rates with both of these disorders, not everyone or even most people with thrush
have either diabetes or thrush
. Furthermore, while if the PA thought you had thrush
it probably was, there are many other benign oral processes which can mimic thrush. If you were treated for thrush and got better, this is probably what was going on but, just to be clear, all that appears to be thrush is not.
