Candida And Celiac

Recommended Posts

I have struggled with yeast infections since my son was born 7 years ago. I think I get about 2 a year. If I increase my coffee intake or eat just 1 chocolate candy bar for several days in a row I seem to get them.

I've done a search and found some information, but I'm confused. Monistat and Diflucon don't work for me, I get another cream prescription from the doctor (can't remember the name) and that does take care of it until I eat too much sugar or caffeine.

What's the reason celiac's get these? Is there a "cure"? How do I find out what's causing them because it doesn't seem like eating such a small amount of chocolate and increasing my coffee intake should cause this imbalance? Now that I'm newly diagnosed celiac, should I get rid of them permanently?

Any advice or information is greatly appreciated. I'd like to get rid of this problem once and for all.

I have not yet been dx'd with celiac but it's a possibility and I am definitely having tons of problems with yeast... if you look on the main pages in the site inex under related conditions I think it was there's an article about the similarity in structure between yeast cell walls and gliadin/ gluten and speculation that candida infection may trigger celiac. I have had one almost every month this year I do think, sometimes two a month. I go to a gyne that specializes in this problem in about 2.5 weeks, so we'll see what they can do to help me get rid of it.

guess what, I just found out after being gluten-free for 7 years that it is normal not to be able to break down the sugars--I take pearl acidof. good stuff, you can even get it at wal-mart--but if you want to get well you need to stay away from sugar--lots of sacrifice but I decided nothing tastes as good as feeling good feels....

I've never heard that before. Where did you find it out? I'd like to do some research on it myself so any info you can give me would be wonderful. Does that mean we will never be able to break down sugars or is it something that will improve with the gluten free diet?

Peral acidof? What is is supposed to do?

I did end up getting a prescription from my OBGYN office. I've stayed relatively sugar free and do great when I am, even if I do have an occasional sugary treat. It's definatly when I over indulge that I have the problem.

Check out Candida Support The ThreeLac and FiveLac are specific types of probiotics that fight candida. They worked great for me. I was getting sick twice a month in the winter and now if I get sick it is very mild and gone within a couple of days. I also had swollen lymph glands in my neck that are gone now and my skin is not dry anymore. You can get some detox symptoms, but ginger water and salt baths help a lot.

Good Luck
