Candida Albicans overgrowth / Yeast infections

41 posts in this topic


So the results are in, and I have the following news to share:

I DO NOT have Candida overgrowth or any fungal issues (aka "Mycology")

I DO NOT have any parasites

I DO NOT have a leaky gut

My Triglycerides are high (need to continue eating high fibre, low fat diet)

Good bacteria are on the low side - need to build these back up

Would benefit from having food allergies tested and also for possible SIBO

Am going to slowly re-introduce food groups on a weekly rotational basis....

Can hardly believe this news!!!

Forgot to mention:


NO faecal (sp?) blood either


Although this was good news for me, I am not complacent but am just very aware of what I'm eating now and how important gut health is.


It was worth having this health scare to get healthier.

Since seeing my Naturopath last month and getting a positive response i.e. NO Candida overgrowth......as mentioned above, I am going to get tested for SIBO in July (when we'll have some money available).


I am also on a range of supplements to boost my immune system and increase the "good" bacteria in my gut.


Although my BMI has decreased, I have lost muscle mass and increased body fat :( this means I have to step up floor exercises, as I stopped doing them for a month due to recurrent UTIs/Cystitis.
