Bronchitis Symptoms Systemic Candida
Had stool analysis done.showed 'many candida albicans'. Is this bad? Does it mean I have systemic yeast? I have no stomach problems or other symptoms
No worries!: "Systemic yeast" is an urban myth -- often used to explain any number of symptoms but not an accepted medical entity, at least not by the scientific medicine community. It is normal to have yeasts in the intestine anmd to be visible in feces. Also, "stool analysis" is pretty much a waste of time and money, except in very specific circumstances and if recommended by an appropriate specialist. ...Read more

Had bact bronchitis.1500mg a day ammox blue and orange puffer ended in yeast infection. Treated. Now thrush, sore throat and yeast infection again?!
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
Why ever?: The idea of candida overgrowth is a myth. The yeast is a common occupant of the intestines and is as much as 5% of the dry weight of your poo. I have seen some mega labs, one specifically, that advertises their test of submitted stools samples for their "normals" and advises folks to seek treatment. They always suggest you repeat the test $$$ to be sure you are better. ...Read more

NO such disease: Every single living human has candida inside of them. All humans' blood would test positive for candida. All of us. There is no disease state.

What is candida ab IgG and how is it contracted? What are the symptoms of candida ab igg? And how do you treat it? What is the prognosis?
Candida spp.: Candida is a yeast-like fungus. The antibody (Ab) to this is formed by elements of your immune system and the particular antibody to which you are referring is an immunoglobulin G (IgG). This is not a disease and these results alone don't need treatment. Discuss this with the doctor who ordered the test. Best wishes. ...Read more
Learning the truth: Listen, Brad. If you buy into this "candida" cult, you will never, ever feel well again. They'll persuade you that you have an incurable disease that you must manage intensively. They'll encourage you to focus on being a misunderstood victim of an illness that physicians conspire to ignore. It's bunk. Get your health issues managed scientifically and get on with a productive life. ...Read more

Systemic Candida: Symptoms of candida pyelonephritis, cystitis, prostatitis, or epididymo-orchitis are little different from those of the same infections produced by other pathogens. Candiduria occurring in critically ill patients should initially be regarded as a marker for the possibility of invasive candidiasis. ...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
Maybe none: This yeast is estimated to account for 5% of the dry weight of your poop. While there it usually has no symptoms.

Common sites of infection include the mouth, genitalia, urinary tract, and esophagus. ...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
Do you believe in candida syndrome? If so, what symptoms would make it conclusive to you? My doctor does believe in it.
This: Is a tough diagnosis. Not knowing your history I can't make a true determination. But antibiotic use contributes to the cause. If you and your doctor believe it's the diagnosis. Try the supplements (echinacea, garlic lactobacillus to name a few.). May need oral antifungals as well. But if your symptoms point to it. And your history adds to this diagnosis. Treat accordingly. ...Read more
IV antifungal meds:
The majority of IV anti fungal medicines are potent and would also treat a yeast such as Candida Albicans. Candida can occur in mild skin and mucous membrane forms, or more severe systemic forms. Some fungi are particularly difficult to treat and require long term IV or oral therapy. It is important to have targeted anti fungal therapy directed by a physician knowledgeable in infections. ...Read more
