Recurrent Yeast (Tmi, Sorry)

16 posts in this topic

I've had chronic yeast infections since I was thirteen. Every month before my period, I'd get one, and apparently my mom was the same at my age. My doctor gave me Diflucan to take once a week for 6 months, and for a while, it worked. Over the last couple of weeks, I noticed my typical yeast symptoms and went back to my doctor. She cultured it (owwww) and sure enough, YEAST. She didn't say what type but she took me off Diflucan and put me on terconazole (suppository). I'm not really surprised, given the lethal antibiotics I've been on since March. Any suggestions for how to get this to go away? I've done the candida diet in the past and it really worked for me, and I'm planning to go on it again given my new diagnosis, but I'd love to hear other thoughts.

Ugh! I feel for you because I have been there myself. I had this for 3 years. Every single time my period ended, I got a yeast infection. It took a good 6 months of no gluten, corn or dairy to get it to clear up. I haven't had one in years. It was directly related to my celiac and food allergies.

Also, Dove unscented soap is the best thing to wash with. Stay away from perfumes soaps.

Dealing with the same myself, so I empathize! I just finished my 4th round of terconozale + weekly oral diflucan and it isn't gone. Going to go on a strict candida diet. Getting desperate!

Oh, Mitzi, your story doesn't give me hope for terconazole's success! o.O But I too am starting the strict Candida diet tomorrow...eliminating fruits, grains, sweets (they were mostly gone anyway), etc.

Hmmmm, Gluten-Free.....I have a strong suspicion about corn, I crave it like you wouldn't believe, which makes me think I have some sort of intolerance or allergy, which might explain things. Thanks for the insight.

I had this problem a few years ago. Besides the basics like unscented soap ( dove), tide free detergent , no fabric softener with underwear , I used AZO YEAST. it's a supplement u can get at Walmart in the feminine hygiene section. Yellow box. It works miracles! It's basically lactobacillus highly concentrated. That's the only thing that got it really unde control for me. I was taking all those prescrip creams too & they would always come back. Ado get your glucose checked bc high glucose can cause recurrent yeast infections

Thanks Kim! I got my glucose tested and that's apparently normal so I think I"m okay there. I'm switching over to unscented Ivory (I had some cheap stuff in my shower) and I'll try supplements next. I'm planning to start the diet tomorrow and I'll be seeing a naturopath before I leave for school in four weeks.

I just went to the doctor today actually. I cannot get rid of the yeast infection I've had since April. I have it vaginally and also in my mouth. I am almost to the point of pulling my hair out. She has stopped the meds... they just arent working on me. I feel your pain! I am new to the Celiac world. Just diagnosed in June.

Oh goodness! That sounds awful. The terconazole seems to be helping, but I don't think it will help the white coating on my tongue that looks suspiciously like candida. :(

I had off and on yeast infections for a couple of years until I discovered my various food intolerances (primarily gluten and dairy). When I cut out the offending foods, within a month or so I never had another infection.

If you have already cut out gluten, maybe something else is bothering you. It may be your immune system may be busy dealing with additional intolerances, so you have lower resistance to all kinds of infections: bacterial, viral and fungal (yeast).

That is a good point. I'm in the process of cutting out corn (I have a terrible craving for it, which I know is a symptom of intolerance) and fruits/grains. My plan is to do a really intense diet and then add things back in to test whether they are problematic.

It is very possible that it is from corn. Part of my corn allergy includes yeast and or UTI and bladder pain and irritation. It's all GMO and unnatural. With every minor cc with corn, all of those symptoms come back. Might be worth a shot.

I hope you all are better soon.

I'm definitely gonna check on corn then! I think I'm corn free at this point anyway but it'll take time. Thanks!

www.wholeapproach.com is the one I'm using for candida.

Thanks so much, will check it out.

Does anyone see a yeast UTI connection?

In addition to cutting out sugar, starches, and yeast, add coconut oil to your diet. It helps fight candida. I use it instead of butter on cooked veggies..and in my coffee. You can also use it topically to ease itching/burning..and it's safe to use as a personal lubricant too.

Be sure to take a probiotic with lactobacillus acidophilus. It helps kill off yeast.

wow, I've been fighting this too and thought it was due to my meds. I've been eating a lot of corn and milk lately. I didn't have a clue that could cause yeast problems! Now, I'll stop those foods as well.

Thank you for the link to the diet. I didn't know there was a candida diet. I had a diflucan the other day and still feel awful!

    • The follow up report to the colonoscopy can't diagnose, that would come from the dr/consultant. They're just flagging the high ttg and possible celiac to you and your Drs. Good practice all round  
    • I was just diagnosed a little over a month ago, so I'm not sure if I'm the best person to reply, but if I were you I would get the panel redrawn and make sure they include EMA and DGP.    I am a 24 year old female and had a similar (although not nearly as drawn out) situation about a year before my diagnosis. I had been having symptoms for several years with no answer, and went to another primary care doc who wanted to test me. I'm not sure if she ordered the wrong thing by mistake, or didn't know enough about it, but she ordered 1 test-- just the TTG IgG (instead of IgA) and it was positive. I was referred to a GI who said that test wasn't the best one, but he would do a biopsy anyway. It was negative so he said I didn't have celiac. I wish I had asked him to redo the whole panel back then, but I hadn't done enough research at that time. This past December I went to another doctor for the same problems, still trying to find an answer, and my blood work showed anemia and other vitamin deficiencies, so I asked her to run the full celiac panel and I was positive on everything. I went to a different GI to have the biopsy done it was positive (he said he would be very thorough so nothing was missed and took 11 biopsies).    Anyway, long story, but if I had pushed to have all the tests done and found the right doctor, I would have had my diagnosis a year earlier. Keep fighting until you get all the answers you need (and before you give up gluten for good). I've read some posts on this board of people who are only positive on the DGP. Its interesting that you had a high positive before and now its been low or negative, but I would think that has to mean something. 
    • Palvyre-  There are a lots of things that contribute to osteoporosis. I am wondering if you had your testosterone levels checked as well? There are many treatments for osteoporosis, depending on the cause. Fosamax (bisphosphanates) are certainly not the only ones! Hormones, Prolia, Forteo and there are several new ones ready to be approved by the FDA right now. If you haven't seen an endocrinologist, you could consider it. I figure it never hurts to ask a specialist a question.  They could say there's no extra treatment right now or they could know of something that was meant just for someone like you. My fourth grade teacher taught me there are never any dumb questions! Good luck!    
    • An antibody flare up will keep causing damage for weeks or months after a exposure even if you have no symptoms, I am sure someone else will show you the document ion on this on another post. My suggestion is invest in a testing kit or a Nima kit to test stuff if you have to. Pack some sealed nuts, seeds, dried fruits, bars, or a container of meal replacement shake for the trip. Nuts.com for nuts, Gerbs for dried fruit and seeds, and I would suggest kind, julian bakery, or many other bars, as for shakes pioneer labs makes a celiac shake, MRM makes some good shakes and there are several others.
    • Hi, I'm a young 20-something living a gluten-free life in the UK. Socialising can be very difficult as I don't like wine and don't trust the distillation process used on liqueurs such as Jack Daniels (previously my favourite option). Does anyone with a severe gluten sensitivity have any trusted mainstream brands of alcohol which are 100% gluten-free (aside from wine)? Preferably ones that can be found in a typical UK pub.  Thanks in advance!
