After being successfully on the gluten free diet for one year, I purchased one of the gluten-free bread mixes and made a delicious loaf of bread.  I only had two slices and then the yeast hit my body hard.  It seems that being yeast free for a year had made me susceptible to it.  Then, although I repeatedly visited my family doctor for months with symptoms, none of her tests showed any problems.  My specialist had retired and no one had replaced him.

However, I had stopped digesting food, particularly carbohydrates.  My weight started dropping until I was 15% less than I had been.  At a 20% loss, I was finally referred to a dietician.  Not only did she give me advice on what I could try to eat, but she put me on a supplement called Florastor:

This product literally saved my life.  Initially I started with 4 capsules per day and within 4 days it had kicked that yeast out of my digestive tract.  Whew!  Nearly 3 years later, I need only take an occasional dose if I am having any digestive problems but this product will always been on hand.
