Candida Question

3 posts in this topic

My daughter and I are still waiting for the results of our celiac panel. I've been low on iron for some time now and have put on weight over the past year and a half. Part of my problem lately has been exhaustion and an almost constant craving for sugar, fruit, etc. Even when I'm not hungry!! I feel as if my body is craving energy and it just sort of manifests itself as sweet cravings. Is it possibe it could be candida? I don't know much about it.

It certainly could be candida. I used to eat sweet stuff all the time and now I hate it all because it is way too sweet. I found a great doctor who did a three day stool test which showed I had an overgrowth of candida. She gave me prescription antifungals which didn't help much. My mom thought she had a problem as well and she went on Threelac - natural, you can get in online. After about two months she was all better so I tried the Threelac and got rid of it as well.

It can be tough to find a doctor who believes in/understands candida. I would certainly recommend trying the Threelac. I wouldn't get any of the packages or other stuff they sell with it, the Threelac worked well. If you two split a box you could probably tell if it is working after the first box.

Candida is very common with celiac. Our systems are so messed up that we can't keep the candida in check.

I was not tested for candida because I heard so many conflicting stories about the tests. But since I had symptoms, I treated it anyway and still do just to be sure.

I just drink plain Kefir and pau d'arco tea regularly and limit my carbs. So far so good. Marcia

    • Ok, that was my understanding of it too after some reading, but the fact that the result was under "celiac reflex panel" is what confused me.    I do have some unspecified autoimmune activity going on in my body. My inflammation levels are very high, my complement testing has come back off, and nobody really knows why. A total high Iga isn't a surprise in this case if it doesn't actually hab anything to do with gluten. Going gluten free made my inflammation markers rise rather than go down, so I'm inclined to believe I'm mostly okay with gluten, aside from some digestive issues that I believe are simply from the wheat not being fermented. Sourdough causes me no issue,  but soft white bread destroys me for example. Anyways, It's all very confusing and I wish I knew what the heck was going on with my body. 
    • maybe check exactly which blood tests you had done as well if the dermatologist doesn't know much about celiac its possible they didn't run enough
    • i think chips would vary from place to place depending on the ingredients where you go
    • Hey Everyone! Been celiac for 6 years, and it's my first time on a forum.  I assume my story is the same as most of yours: I was really sick and skinny and bloated, got diagnosed with celiac, went gluten-free and felt amazing, then slowly, but surely, the symptoms and elevated antibodies returned, no matter how OCD I am about avoiding cc. Basically I have what they call Non-Responsive Celiac disease.  I'm wondering, is there something ELSE that I can do? Clearly the gluten-free diet isn't enough anymore. I know I'm not alone in this experience. And I know doctors don't have any advice besides the gluten-free diet (and the new celiac drug that is apparently in phase III)). But do you guys know of any other tricks?  I went on anti-anxiety SSRIs for a bit to help with my anxiety problems, and that really helped my celiac. But now that I've sort of developed a tolerance to my low dose, the symptoms have returned. Anyone else try this? Or low doses or steroids/anti-inflammatory drugs?  I'm really sick of feeling sick. I even tried the Fasano (Gluten Contamination Elimination Diet) for 3 months, but it didn't really work. Any suggestions or tips would be much appreciated! Or even the names of doctors who have helped you!  
    • 60% of celiacs with dh test negative on the celiac blood work. Fact. Many people with DH have no digestive symptoms and only about 40% of them have the positive blood tests (serology) for celiac disease.
