Help Me!

Recommended Posts

I have been bothered with urinary tract infections and candida alot lately and am now wondering if it could be due to using tampons during my periods. I noticed it had cleared up but when my menses started, I began to have symptoms again. This is getting to be a viscious circle with antiboitics first and diflucan next. Not exactly a healthy diet if you ask me. Has anyone else been botherd with these kind of symptoms? Thanks for those who responded to "Dusted!" I am having the genetic blood test done for celiac as I have not been officially diagnosed yet but am pretty sure of it. Mainly this is for my peace of mind and my family who is very sick and in total denial of the whole celiac issue as they just refuse to change their diets. I really don't want my grandchildren to grow up sick. Thanks for your help , sis

I used to have that UTI problem constantly & my daughter had the same thing, each month if we were not sick, we soon would be. I think it is really because the monthly period drags your immune system down. Ours even had the same onset time, though different days, three oclock in the afternoon, whammo...

how long have you been gluten-free? are you also dairy free? i would say that you should also analyze your diet & do a nutritional overhaul, exercise routine is important, take a multi vitamin & take a sublingual B12, & make sure you are not anemic, & eat plenty of meat...

I would say that sugar free would help you. I am on zero sugar and zero fruit right now, trying to rid myself of an candida and bacteria in my intestines and elsewhere. Sugar feeds bacteria. It's only tough for the first few days, and if you can handle stevia (an herb), it can make it easier to handle the no sugar...it's sweet, but isn't sugar.

Since I've quit sugar entirely, I have no intestinal bloating and I'm not on the verge of bacterial vaginosis all the time (you can tell, you know what I mean).

p.s. I plan to add fruit back once my system feels nice and clean, probably three months...and then slowly.

thanks for the reply, i know i should quit the sugars again. I have been trying that for years, but when my system gets cleared out as soon as i have even any food that has a little sugar in it i have such a reaction, it is almost scary. i would get light headed and dizzy and candida and uti imediately. it really stinks. i had my genetic test a week ago mon. and they said the results should be back in a couple of days. I am also supposed to see a nutritionist soon so maybe that will help weed out all the foods I am not tolerating right now. I have fought candida and uti's for over 25 years! Thanks for your advice. sistergoldenhair

hi gfpaperdoll, i have been gluten free for almost 5 years excluding the slip ups which have taught me some good lessons. i have been wondering about dairy and also sugars. I forgot to tell bully4you, that i do use stevia instead of sugar but unfortunatley they put reg. sugar in some of the gluten free foods which also bothers me. i do excercise , take my mult. and b-12. it's a guessing game i think until i go to the nutritionist and see about more food testing. I had my genetic blood test done a week ago on Mon. now waiting for the results. Good luck to you and your daughter. Thanks, sister golden hair
