Yeast Issues?

Recommended Posts

When we were told that my son need to be on a gluten free diet, he was taking an antifungal for yeast. The doctor wanted him to stay on it for a year, in order not to change too many things at once. He had donewith the antifungal and had finished two and half jars of the stuff. I noticed his circles under his eyes went away, and he was whinning less. We agree to stop the med last week because I didn't want to push the med for a year and, I didn't want to kill off what good bacteria was left in his system. The doc agreed. Sure enough one week later his circles are back and he is more likely to become fustrated easier and cry. Of course, his DQ1 gene can be contributing to the issue as he detoxs off the gluten. Does anyone know of anything natural that may help. Anyone with experience with yeast issues that can offer any advice?

Hi, this may not be helpful at all but my friend has a yeast problem (a non Celiac) and was told to avoid sugars as yeast feeds off of sugar. Like I said, this might be useless information but I thought I would pass it on.

My wife has had a problem with candida/yeast in the past. It was the first thing she was ever diagnosed with, about two years before being diagnosed celiac and going gluten free. Her doctor at that time put her on a yeast-free, sugar-free diet + antifungals (both nystatin and diflucan). It improved a little, but she continued to have the dark circles under her eyes too, plus a permanent female yeast infection. Finally she was diagnosed with celiac disease and also pernicious anemia, which is B12 deficiency. The combination of the gluten-free diet and B12 injections eliminated the problem. Doctors explained that it was a chain reaction that began with celiac disease, then to pernicious anemia and finally yeast overgrowth. B vitamins, as well as other nutrients inhibit yeast growth. It thrives on an a leaky gut and diets high in sugar and carbs.

So, I definitely recommend to investigate following a candida diet for a while, at least until he's been gluten free for months and his body begins to heal. Also talk to the doctor about being tested for pernicious anemia, its a blood test. Even if he doesn't have it he will benefit from increased B vitamin intake, so again find out from the doctor how much is appropriate for his age/size.

I don't know if this will help but I showed a sensitivity to yeast in a blood test. The result I am gluten and yeast free. There is only one type of bread I can buy and it is from Ener-g. It is their yeast free brown or white rice bread. I agree with elimanating sugar.

Hi Susan,

My wife really likes the Candadi Bread mix from Kinnikinnick. Its gluten-free, yf, milk free and can be made egg free if necessary. She uses egg replacer powder. It is way better than the Energ bread since it has a taste/texture more like real bread. They also have a ready made variant and tapioca bread too if you can eat eggs.
