Diflucan can cause transient (temporary) elevations of liver enzymes in up to 5% of patient’s treated with the medication, the liver enzymes returned to normal once the medication was suspended. Additionally, the case report mentioned is from a HIV infected man with Kaposi’s sarcoma and cryptococcal meningitis who had just been on an antibiotic.
I took 100mg Diflucan per day when I first started treatment (post colon cleanse and start of diet). My liver enzymes were elevated after a month. If you have a bad case of candida, your liver will be burdened just from any die off before you add in a powerful drug.
It did not work for me, which I can attribute to:
- Congested liver (low bile flow, LOTs of stone) – only started seeing real progress after liver flushing (Hulda Clark method)
- Imbalance of environment in intestines/body – you can kill candida all you want, but they will just grow back. I had a tapeworm, which only contributed to the toxic environment. I think a main benefit of the stricter diet besides avoiding feeding candida is balancing your own environment.
