How Do I Know If I Have A Overgrowth Of Yeast In My Blood
Can eating sugar & carbs cause a yeast infection? Is there a blood test for overgrowth of yeast in body?
My blood test shows low iron, low vitamin D, low pottasuim & low sugar do you know what cause would be? Can yeast overgrowth cause these ?
Not yeast: Stephanie, if you become involved in the "yeast overgrowth" cult, the disinformation artists will keep you feeling sick for the rest of your life. It's made up. If you are truly iron deficient, you're losing blood OR poorly nourished and your physician needs to find the cause. Your physician is your best guide; labs only slightly outside the reference range are usually not evidence of disease. ...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

Intestinal yeast: Typically a result of antibacterial agents, immune disorders, or dietary issues, the cure often depends in part on cause. If you are not on antibiotics and do not have an immune system problem, the best cure is to add good bacteria back by eating yogurt or taking probiotics available at your grocery or health food store. Sometimes we will use prescriptions like Nystatin or other agents. ...Read more
Can the overgrowth of yeast in the body cause pneumonia or increase your risk for getting pneumonia or are they two unrelated things ?
Generally unrelated: Where would yeast be overgrowing. This theory of yeast overgrowth producing many other issues has never been scientifically proven and when subjected to inquiry does not stand up. Now, if you are immune suppressed, like with HIV disease you can have multiple illnesses simultaneously and this can include systemic yeast infections and pneumonia. Hope this is not you. Have a good thanksgiving. ...Read more

Helps yeast grow.: High blood sugars are often associated with yeast infections especially in the mouth (thrush) or on the skin (particularly in skin folds such as the axillae, groin creases or under the breasts) or vaginal yeast infections.
