hello, I was recent to the forum a couple weeks ago but have now found new information about my state of health.
I recently went to an infectious disease specialist where he took a sample of an irritated part of my colon and immediately examined it under a microscope. He found an amoeba ( E. Histolotica ) and NO signs of Candida (he also took blood) I’ve been on two medicines (one was a three day medicine called Tindanzole, the other 10 day Paromycine) However, I just had terrible sugar cravings today, and i’m still always eating. Could this be from the amoeba or could he have missed the candida? I don’t know what to think! Can amoebas cause sugar cravings and similar symptoms like candida?April 8, 2014 at 5:37 pm #117899
You should get the candida immune complex test and this is best diagnosis. You likely have a variety of other co-infections that western medicine can’t pick up in their testing.

I recently did a comprehensive stool test that tests for candida, is that what you are talking about?April 8, 2014 at 9:51 pm #117929
Also, the test that the doctor performed (the infectious disease specialist) he actually did a procedure where he took a specimen of the irritated part of my colon and viewed it under a microscope. It wasn’t just “regular” testing if you will. Then he also did blood work.April 8, 2014 at 10:36 pm #117932
The stool test likely isn’t good enough for proper diagnosis, dr. mcoombs recommends a combination of 3 tests for positive diagnosis…however dvjorge here on the forum recommends the immune complex test (do a search for it to see why). Your doctor likely won’t know about this test.
Additionally, you are likely infected with cell wall deficient microbes, some viruses, and we all are infected with parasites. These are harder to treat and don’t come up in most tests.
Also, what were your results for stool test?
Why do you think you are ill with CRC (candida related complex)?

When I eat anything besides fish and veggies, my pee turns really dark, and I get swollen –ALL OVER. I feel better when I don’t eat sugar, and I do get some sugar cravings. Some cravings are weird though, like i just want to keep eating even though i’m not hungry. I have reacted to diflucan before and believe I went through die off. I also did one at home test by some company that all you did is prick your finger and it tests the blood to antibodies (i tested positive) but my doctor said that that test isn’t accurate because if you have candida (which everyone does) then of course the test would come back positive. She said if that test tested chicken pox it would also come back positive because my body has been exposed to the vaccine. I feel better mentally when I eat sugar (my brain is clear) but physically I look disgusting. I retain water like no other, and I can gain 20 pounds over the span of 3 days its insane. It wasn’t until I went to see the doctor in New York (and he is the best of the best–and looked for candida) he said he didn’t see any, and he did blood work as well as the scope and found the amoeba. I’m confused as if this could all be from the amoeba–little shit if it is.
My first stool test i was on anti fungals, test came back negative. I have a second one in progress where i ate whatever i wanted to. The first stool test also came back negative for parasites and virus’s. However NYC Doc found E. Histolitica. 2 Good Bacterias had little to no growth. I had 2 SIBO’s (klesibilla oxycota and something else) as well as dysbiotic flora but no yeast was isolated. Don’t know what to believe. Do you think I could still have Candida?April 8, 2014 at 10:55 pm #117939
Well your doctor is right about why the test coming up positive (we all have candida) and this is why the immune complex test is the best route. Dvjorge can explain why this is the best test…
If you have SIBO and are constipated, etc. then a bunch of bad bacteria is likely benefitting from this environment so its likely much more than yeast by itself.
If your urine is dark like that then this can indicate a variety of problems such as liver/kidneys not working optimally and possible dehydration, etc. This all comes hand in hand with a digestive disorder that has been left unaddressed.
We aren’t going to diagnose you but in general I would treat this as a general digestive problem and find the best way to address it. You should feel better treating it naturally and there isn’t a magic pill that will make you feel better…it takes awhile to get better from my experience even with a good plan.
We all have candida so yes you have it. Its a matter of whether its pathogenic or not. If it is, its hard to detect it with tests but the best one is the immune complex test…
