Yeast Cleanse For Autistic Kids
Autism is a neurodevelopmental disorder affecting three areas: abnormal socialization, communication, and restricted interests with repetitive patterns of behavior. It is usually detected in the first two years of life. Cause is unknown but strong evidence points to an interplay between genetic and environmental factors. Patients with autism may display significant delays in certain developmental areas while having normal or superior strengths in other developmental or learning domains. The severity of the disorder is highly variable ...Read more
My four-year-old autistic son had his stool analyzed. There was much yeast in it. Is this a symptom of leaky gut or can it cause brain fog?
No: I have reviewed some lab reports from mega labs that propose a normal value and suggest treatments when this normal component of the poo is found above their normal values.This is pure pseudo-science or snake oil. It does reach the autism community and embraced by some.Of course they will want you to repeat the studies several times to see if treatment worked. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
My four-year-old autistic son has a lot of yeast in his stool. Can this be a symptom of leaky gut syndrome or cause brain fog?
Myth: Everyone has yeast in their stool. It is ubiquitous in nature and comprises a variable part in the stool within hours of birth.It tends to increase in proportion after antibiotic use kills off good bacteria in the gut, and return to lower levels after the other gut germs rebalance. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Is there a relationship between allergies, autism, leaky gut syndrome, candida, intestinal flora and antibiotics?
For some yes : For some children all of those things play a role in exacerbating symptoms and can be seen more frequently in a child who had many infections and antibiotics starting at a young age. Antibiotics kill the good as well as the bad bacteria in our guts and can disrupt the balance and lead to dysbiosis and inflammation which can be precursor for leaky gut and allergies. This is not specific to autism. ...Read more

Fluconazole 5x???: I don't understand--- why five times? And what was the duration of treatment each time? Are you sure it is fungus that you are treating and nothing else?

Absolutely.: Yeast are biological organisms that can spread fairly easily. A good example is thrush--a yeast infection of the mouth that frequently causes a diaper rash. Depending on where your yeast infection is located, whether you share the same towel or bathe together can all influence this possibility. Also, younger children taking antibiotics--especially cephalosporins--can be predisposed to yeast. ...Read more
My child is 16 and she just got her first yeast infection I never had a yeast infection but what should I do about my child what steps should I take?
Tx for yeast infx: There are many options for the treatment of yeast infections. Many over-the-counter creams and vaginal suppositories are available. If these are not working after a few days, call your doctor for an oral dose of Diflucan (fluconazole) - one dose usually does it. As far as prevention in future, do not "over clean" genital area. Using lots or frequent antibacterial soaps can lead to yeast being queen in that area ...Read more
Okay so I have been trying to solve my candida problem but it keeps coming back. I've done a yeast cleanse and been taking probiotic what is the deal?
Antifungal: Next step would be taking an antifungal medication. Nystatin is effective and is by far the safest. If that doesn't work i'd have to ask you what do you mean by "candida problem"? If you truly have a chronic mucosal fungal infection and are not taking oral antibiotics i'd order tests for diabetes mellitus and immunodeficiency. Mucosal means the lining of the digestive tract &, in women, the vagina. ...Read more
