It is real candida metabolites affect the thyroid glans, however, I have a different thought than this Dr about it. It isn’t the destruction of candida cells by an immune attack but the metabolites generated when a yeast overgrowth ferments carbohydrates.
He is looking to this syndrome as a hyper-sensitivity to the yeast at “normal” levels. Even having this possibility in some cases, the majority of cases is caused by an intestinal overgrowth.
Yeast metabolites are produced during fermentation as metabolic wastes. Both scenarios cause the same consequence.
