Can you get autism from infections. Overgrowth of bacteria or yeast?

No infection/no B/Y: There is no known single cause for autism, but it is generally accepted that it is caused by abnormalities in brain structure or function. Brain scans show differences in the shape and structure of the brain in children with autism versus in neurotypical children.

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?

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 more

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 more

Is there a relationship between allergies, autism, leaky gut syndrome, candida, intestinal flora and antibiotics?

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

My dr gave me fluzancole for yeast 5 times and its not working my dr gave me a total of 6 diff kids of antibtics last yr will my body ever get normal?

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? I would consult with a dermatologist. May be you need skin biopsy to first confirm the diagnosis and then treat it right. ...Read more

Can i spread yeast infection to my child?

Can i spread yeast infection to my child?

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?

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

Doubtful: A yeast infection at birth would not by itself affect your ability to have kids. A face-to-face conversation with your doctor would allow you to ask all the questions you want, and maybe settle your concerns. Online answers like this may not be as effective. Be well. ...Read more
