Does anyone know if Advair (a powder steroid for asthma) can cause an overgrowth of candida?
Until last spring right before I started the diet I had been on Advair for seven years. About two weeks ago my asthma started to act up and I felt I had to use my Advair again, and have been almost every other day since. My candida symptoms have worsened, although I can’t say whether that is due to the Advair, or a few (very minor) breaks in the diet. This is my fifth month on the diet so I am quite confused about the way I’ve been feeling. Anyone have any knowledge about Advair and its possible connection to candida??
