Candida Glabrata Symptoms
I had candida glabrata and finished fluctyosine 2 weeks ago. I am still symptomatic and would like to try to get pregnant. Do I still have it?
Yes: Where/what kind of infection? Skin infection can be treated with topical antifungals. Urinary tract infection can usually be cured with fluconazole. Although many strains are relatively resistant to fluconazole (diflucan) the high levels achieved in urine overcome this. An invasive infection that is Diflucan resistant may need voriconazole or an echinocandin (micafungin). ...Read more

How is candida glabrata diff then routine candida? Is it connected to UCTD, lichen sclerosis? I am using Compounded boric acid suppositories
Complicated: Usually not a pathogen, it may become a pest when on a person with weak immunity such as hiv, elderly, immune suppressing drugs, even connective tissue diseases. It is somewhat resistant to fluconazole but usually responds to nystatin. Boric acid appears to be an excellent remedy. It is much less common than C. Albicans which is usually seen associated with diabetes, antibiotics, cortisones. ...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. The internet is full of fake, false, dangerous and inaccurate stuff. Since you 'have all the symptoms' but did not describe what those symptoms would be we cannot comment further. ...Read more
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
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
Maybe none: This yeast is estimated to account for 5% of the dry weight of your poop. While there it usually has no symptoms.

Fluconazole: Yes, fluconazole is an anti-fungal proven effective against candidal infections of various sites and is NOT dependent on gender.

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

Have severe urgency & naturopath said I might have candida & should cut out sugar & dairy. How long would it take for this diet to reduce my symptoms?
I am an 18 year old girl who's dreading having to go on the Candida diet to cure my overgrowth symptoms? Is there any way to cure it without diet?
Sorry but not really: Few people enjoy going on a candida diet but it's impossible to treat well without a proper diet. Think of candida as a fire simmering in your intestines. Taking antifungals is like pouring water on the fire, but continuing to eat sweets is like pouring gas on the fire- you can't put it out if you keep fueling it. But you can use sweeteners like xylitol & stevia, and it's temporary- see comment: ...Read more
What is the symptomps : candida in penis? My meatus tip is swollen. No pain, not itchy. Is that it?
Balanitis: Uncircumcised men are more prone to infection or inflammation of the head of the penis and candida is a frequent cause. Candida can be transmitted from a woman who has a yeast vaginitis. Since bacterial infections of the head of the penis are less common, I recommend applying an anti yeast cream to see if your inflammation clears up. Anti bacterial cream and topical steroid creams could be tried. ...Read more

Lab test: There is a laboratory called the great plains that tests urine for yeast infection. Yeast infections are common and the hq of the infection is in the bowel. The yeast ferments sugar and produces arabinose and/or tartaric acid. These are absorbed into the blood and excreted in urine. Your dr. Has to order it so find one that knows about this. ...Read more

Is candida overgrowth common? And is it common in males? Will it cause yellow tongue? Are there blood tests to detect? What are other symptoms?
Mostly a myth: If you believe the phony internet claims, almost everybody has 'candida overgrowth'. It's not going to make your tongue yellow. Although the 'pop' claim has been around since the 1970's, its proponents have no easy test to diagnose it, which itself tells me it's fake. If you have a groin rash from candida (satellite lesions) or oral lesions (white stuff that scrapes off), it's real. ...Read more
