    I suppose you could just say ‘it depends’. Everybody’s biochemistry is unique and there are a lot of factors that could influence a candida overgrowth. Maybe some of these?

    – What was the condition of the gut flora prior to treatment?
    – How well was digestion functioning prior to treatment (any constipation, leaky gut, stomach acid deficiency)?
    – Was there any undiagnosed dysbiosis or candida overgrowth?
    – What was the condition of the immune system and the liver?
    – Was a healthy diet maintained before, during or after treatment?
    – Was stress a factor before, during or after treatment?
    – Any other illnesses, viruses etc?
    – How broad spectrum was the antibiotic?
    – What dosage was taken and for how long?
    – Were probiotics taken during or after treatment?

    There are probably plenty more. I guess you could say lifestyle would be one of the most important things. If the antibiotic was strong enough or taken for long enough without probiotics and a strict diet, then I think it’s almost inevitable to end up with candida or dysbiosis of some kind.

    Ok I took tetralysal for about 6 months. I was completely fine when I took it, but when I came off it about a month ago I started getting environmental allergies such as a dog allergy. Never really became allergic to foods.
    I did the spit test and it came out positive so that freaked me out, but I never really had any of the other symptoms. Is the diet a good idea anyway? Never had any die off and I’ve been on the diet for 2 and a half weeks now.

    I’d say that its a pretty safe bet that the antibiotics caused a flora imbalance in your gut that caused all of your symptoms. Dr. Mcoomb’s has discussed this many times and feels that its the single greatest factor in everyone’s candida overgrowth.

    Still wondering though, why do the majority of people who have taken antibiotics not have a candida overgrowth? I know many people who have taken them, some long term, but have never had problems.

    If you’re eating a healthy diet with plenty of vegetables and nutrients and not overeating sugar and carbohydrates and your immune system is functioning properly, there’s no reason why antibiotics should give you a yeast infection or a Candida infestation. This only happens when the immune system is not functioning properly, or when a person is eating a very unhealthy diet. In other words, the environment has to be in a condition that is beneficial for yeast to change into its fungal form known as Candida albicans.
