I have read over the symptoms and I am sure that I do, but how do you get tested for it. I can not afford to go to a Natropath Doctor, Can a regular family doctor test for it?

Thanks

Krista

I am not sure how to get tested, I have heard blood and stool tests. I know the other day I had a lot of carbs and some peanut butter. The next day I was very light headed, irritated and a few other sympotms. So last night I decided to have a high intake of carbs and I feel horrible again today, so I am going to cut carbs and sugar.

So my question is, how many people here have encountered this problem, it is said that people with Celiac are prone to getting this too.

Hello

I have candida and I found out with the home spit test, the score in some tests I found in the the net and then my blood tests prooved that these home tests were right. And right after I started the therapy with some herbs and I cut down carbs I started having the dying off symptoms.

You should have some tests first cause it is a very hard diet you must follow.The chances to have candida increase if you have used many antibiotics and/or had a poor diet or a very rich one in sugars. A family doctor can run some blood tests to check it out. My family doc did that.

In this forum there are some people having candida overgrowth and someone has asked if there is a possibilit to create a place were we can post only for candida issues.

Yes, I would be very interested in learning/chatting more about Candida infections. I am at the point where I am starting to explore it as a possibility in my own healing, and I since I am broke I will need to learn everything I can from you guys and through my own research and experience. I am pretty sure Yeast is a major problem for me right now, and I haven't acted on it yet. I am in the stage of collecting information and deciding what to do next.


-First overt but unrecognized symptoms after reintroducing dairy and wheat to my diet after a 2-month absence, 2002.

-First appearance of chronic aphthous stomatiti, 2002.

-Persistent symptoms and treated for Giardia again with Flagyl twice (without testing), 2006.

-Dx milk allergy from a blood test, April 2007.

-Also presented for anemia, high white blood cell count, and candida in the same test. Dx IBS, April 2007.

-Response to diet and self-diagnosis through overwhelming symptoms and possible genetic link (hypothyroidism, fibromyalgia runs in the family), April 2008

I have not been diagnosed with candida, but fit the profile of someone who would have issues with it (past use of prednisone, etc.) What I find is that by cutting out all grains, sugars, and fruits (and most starchy vegetables), I get relief from the issues of bloating and discharge. If I eat sugar (for a few days) or fruit, I get the symptoms again. And yes, mental stuff is among the symptoms, especially just being less able to handle emotions if I eat sugar.

There is a book called Body Ecology which is really good, if your library has it. The diet, as outlined, is VERY hard to maintain if you are thin - it is hard to get enough calories - and also if you are vegetarian, since it indicates some meat. But even if you don't follow the diet to a T, you can get some good advice about eating in general and about an anti-candida diet.

I don't think you need to be diagnosed to go on a grain free sugar free FRUIT free diet - the first two things here are probably not very good for anyone, so no loss in giving them up (except the mental one). The fruit you get to add back once you get back on track.

I figure for me, my digestive system's natural bugs just aren't robust enough yet to handle much fruit or to handle any sugar. Once they get back on track, I should be able to eat fruit again. Ah, peaches.
