Was surprised to read saccharomyces boulardii can cause fatal infections in some people. am i safe using it to help my c diff? i take prednis at times

Good advice: Saccharomyces is a yeast that is considered relatively nonpathogenic in immunocompetent adults. Yes there are case reports of it proving fatal in rare instances. Keep in mind however that NOTHING is 100% guaranteed safe, so examine your personal risks before using ANYTHING, & stick with recommended dose & frequency of all medication & supplements (prescribed or otherwise). ...Read more

If someone is susceptible to fungal and yeast infections ... should he stay away from this specific type of probiotic called Saccharomyces Boulardii + MOS 5billions. I have a feeling it is making it worse. Please advise me thank you.

Unlikely the reason:: There have been reports of fungemia(fungus in the blood stream) from S.boulardii but In most cases, patients who developed fungemia in the setting of probiotic administration had severe comorbidities, were on immunosuppressive medication, had recent surgical intervention, or had recent prolonged hospitalization. Routine fungal infections of skin, vagina,hair or nails are not a contraindication. ...Read more

Will taking Saccharomyces boulardi and a bacterial based probiotic together be a problem? Will the yeast cause the bacteria to be ineffective?

Will taking Saccharomyces boulardi and a bacterial based probiotic together be a problem? Will the yeast cause the bacteria to be ineffective?

Probiotics: The intestinal flora and the interactions of various organisms is often not easy to predict and the introduction of Saccharomyces and Lactobacilli or other bacilli and which takes over will depend upon multiple poorly defined factors, and whether the patient is also receiving antibiotics for other reasons. There seems no contraindication to taking both, but simply eating Yogurt is quite effective. ...Read more

Antibodies : Yes but be careful. High amounts of this antibody are found with celiac disease, chrone's disease and a few other disorders.

Some vaccines contain saccharomyces cerivisiae. Could they cause u 2 form anti-saccharomyces cerivisiae antibodies, thus inducing Crohn's disease?

Probably not.: First of all, most vaccines don't go anywhere near the yeast, only recombinant vaccines use it. Secondly, the vaccines are purified , and the amounts of actual saccharomyces in the vaccine are very small, compared to the relatively huge amounts of the yeast in the bowel. So the likelihood of this being a problem is tiny. ...Read more

In addition the condition being treated will affect the time frame. ...Read more
