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
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.

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.

Hey i'm taking gnc 10 bilion probiotic complex becoz yeast overgrowth.is taking gnc 25 bilion or 50 bilion is for fast recovery from candida overgrowt?
No: That cannot be assumed to be true, because almost NONE of the probiotic supplements have scientific studies proving a particular supplement at particular doses can lead to "fast" recovery from a particular disease. "Yeast overgrowth" is very vague, because it does not say HOW MUCH overgrowth, nor even WHERE in the body the overgrowth is, or which TYPE of yeast. Usually, supplements are "untested". ...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
Not usual: It has been my experience that there is no relationship between candida and fatigue. You would have to have one overwhelming case of candida to cause your fatigue.......And why do you have the overgrowth.
