Are you sure the UTI is fungal? SIBO isn’t a result of antibiotic use as far as I’m aware, so you should be questioning how or why microbes have been able to invade your small intestine.
No I can’t be sure, but the UTI started soon after me starting with the diet and the antifungals. I interpreted this as a die-off symptom.
I got my issues after being pregnant 7 years a go. The symptoms have always revolved around abdominal issuses; diarrhea, gas, pain, a feeling of inflamation of the gut.
But I have had seborrich eczema and yeast infections but not so serious that it couldn’t be cured with the ointments from the pharmacist.
If I got die-off from SF722 could this be a safe sign of candida, or could you feel ill anyway?
Is that literally all you’re eating right now? How much protein are you getting with so little carbs? What about calories? Are you losing weight? Have you developed other symptoms like cold intolerance, trouble sleeping, hair loss etc? Do your original problems seem to be getting better or worse?
Not really, I also ate green beans and broccoli, which messed me up. But, pretty much for the last two weeks. But I do make a dessert of Creamed Coconut and rhubarb also. I’m not loosing weight at all, not that I have any weight to loose.
I eat a lot of fat. Ghee, Coconut Oil, Olive Oil, Sesame Oil. A couple of weeks ago I was terribly, terribly tired and had RSL. I started drinking nettle tea and suddenly I started to feel better. So, regarding the fatigue I feel better than in a long time. But my stomach is bad, actually, gas, diarrhea 🙁 I don’t know what to do. It feels like everything makes me ill.
It’s wise to keep microbes in mind, but it’s ultimately your body that matters. What if slow metabolism, poor glucose handling, chronic inflammation, weakened immunity, poor thyroid hormone conversion etc are issues for you? Is your current diet giving your body the nutrition it needs to address such potential issues?
I’ve tested my thyroid. At first my TSH looked bad, but then they did another more specified test and my T3 was just a litte, little off, but nothing major. The doctor said it was nothing. I hope I get the nutrition I need. The cucumber/zucchini question was more of a is-this-all-I-can-eat-for-the-rest-of-my-life-since-everything-else-makes-me-sick kind of question 🙂 But I do eat pretty damn restricted, I can’t get a lot of carbs at all. Where do you get your carbs from?

I don’t know what advice to give you except to continue researching, testing (if possible), experimenting and never taking anything for granted. If you settle in on the wrong approach or accept the wrong set of beliefs, you might get stuck in a rut for a long time.
Thank you so much for taking the time to help. It feels a little tough since I don’t know if I’m going down the right path, but it should be bacterial/fungus-related due to the “good” response to antifungals and antibacterials.
