A Connection Between Systemic Candida And Brain Function
What happens if oral candida(from the tongue) reaches brain through dental caries or other tooth problems ?
My IGg blood test reveal candida albicans, then tested for stool fungi culture which show 'medium growth', I suffer from severe Brain Fog. Advise pls?
Get the right advice: For someone who has a symptom of brain fog, I recommend they meet with a psychiatrist and undergo cognitive testing. Vitamin B12 deficiency may cause this symptom, hopefully your level is normal, as you use supplements. Testing for stool fungi and IGG for Candida is not likely to help explain the cause of your symptoms. Try not to do self-diagnosis- it often leads to errors. ...Read more

My four-year-old autistic son had his stool analyzed. There was much yeast in it. Is this a symptom of leaky gut or can it cause brain fog?
No: I have reviewed some lab reports from mega labs that propose a normal value and suggest treatments when this normal component of the poo is found above their normal values.This is pure pseudo-science or snake oil. It does reach the autism community and embraced by some.Of course they will want you to repeat the studies several times to see if treatment worked. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Myth: Everyone has yeast in their stool.

Avoid sugary foods: If you have a problem with yeast, the cure is to avoid sugary food, including foods that turn into sugar after you eat them, like bread, cereal, pastries, and pasta. You may also have a problem with the immune system that makes you susceptible to yeast infection. Or you may have another infection such as epstein barr virus that has weakened your system.

Extreme itch after all food no rash.Colonoscopy endoscopy thryoid blood(full) abdominal CT contrast brain MRI urine 4 yeast clean hysterectmy 6yr ago?
Perhaps food allergy: To find out which food is causing the itch, you will probably need an allergist. You can try an elimination diet, food skin tests or blood tests for food to narrow down what you are eating that you are allergic to. If it happens after every meal, it is likely to be a staple food like wheat, milk or egg, so you are being exposed every time you eat. Quantities that seem small are huge to your cells. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Could you tell me what's the connection between poor stomach flora and vaginal infections like candida?
Good vs Bad bacteria: There are both good and bad bacteria. When you don't have enough good bacteria then probiotics are used to increase these bacteria which are important for normal digestion. When antibiotics are taken both good and bad bacteria are destroyed. This gives yeast a chance to grow. One of the most common form of yeast is candida. ...Read more
I have been diagnosed with gilbert's syndrome and dyshidrotic eczema is there a connection? I also wonder if candida overgrowth is at play here?
What are the appropriate tests and what should be looked at for candida possible systemic issues? (man)
No such thing: Please forgive my frankness. After forty years of talk, the vast majority of people in the scientific community -- the most cutthroat of all truth-seekers -- believe that "systemic candida" is a cruel myth. Once a person thinks they have this, they NEVER feel well again, since no one is ever cured. Please get with a sensible practitioner -- perhaps an evidence-based holist. ...Read more
Send you home: They would do some expensive test that will all be normal and then send you home recommending you follow up with your family doctor. There is no such disease of systemic candida. All humans living have candida in and on them. All humans. This is not the cause of your health concerns. ...Read more
I am taking fluconazole 400mg/day for my systemic candida. I there health dangers with the drug at that dose for 6 weeks?
Fluconazole use: Yes - you definitely need to be monitored if you are on long term anti fungal therapy - especially at a 'high dose' as you are on. I recommend at least weekly chemistry tests (checking the kidneys) and LIVER TESTS (checking the liver functions). Fluconazole can inflame the liver - and your doctor should be helping keep track of these things. Also, I recommend you see an ID doc if you have Candida ...Read more
