    Candida often results in malabsorption, including fats. It’s impossible to be confident, however, without knowing whether this is your only symptom?

    I don’t know about candida, but steatorrhea is a very common symptom of SIBO, i.e, an overgrowth of bacteria in the small intestine. But my guess would be that candida can give you steatorrhea as well.

    Dr. Mcoombs mentioned on his blog how long term inflammation of the gut can lead to malabsorption syndromes:

    He isn’t very thorough but it is out there.

    Funny you say that Angor i was thinking the same thing that it could be SIBO would the candida diet treat both the candida & the sibo ?

    It might be possible that some of candida yeast overgrowth is crowding out some of the beneficial fat digesting bacteria in the gut. I noticed that hard to digest fats became harder to digest when candida overgrowth is present. Might be possible that some of the harmful metabolites that candida releases interferes with proper liver function/proper digestion.

    There are some pathogens(h-pylori etc..) that can secrete acid neutralizers that help their proliferation. These acid neutralizers can affect digestion of fats/food.
