Just make sure you don’t overdo it in the long term before you know you aren’t a lifetime sufferer. My doctor explained how some of us have a possible genetic disposition to fungal overgrwoth. Some of his patients – once they cross a certain line for infestation – DO have to watch their diet for the rest of their lives. Just a thought….
It is possible some people have genetic pre-disposition to yeast growth. There are two types of tolerance to candida, one is the genetic ( immune defect since born ) and the other is the ACQUIRED tolerance.
Candida Related Complex, the syndrome we discuss in this forum, is the ACQUIRED tolerance type that we develop at some point of our life after exposition of antibiotics, stress, encouraging food, etc.
This acquired tolerance is totally reversible. I disagree with your Dr, and think Dr. Truss may disagree too.
People with a genetic immune disorder since born should no be looking for answers in this forum.
Most cases are acquired tolerance. I think your Dr doesn’t know what to do to cure you and the fast answer is you have a genetic problem with yeast. He should be honest and tell you he doesn’t know what else to do.
He also should tell you that there is known candida albicans resistance to Fluconazole but NO to Nystatin.
See the words of Dr. Truss:
The good news is most of the time this disease is correctable.
The albicans strains don’t develop resistance to Nystatin. It is possible and have been documented but no common.
