I am a 30 year old male with a good health record. Recently I have been paying more attention to how my stomach reacts to different things and of course I suspected that I may have a Candida overgrowth because I get occasional bloating, minor burping and such when eating some foods. I dont experience any problems when eating pizza, however which is what I find strange.
The other problem I have is the fact that I have a recurring male candidisis which is really what got me thinking about this issue.
I had all types of tests done (I am waiting on stool results) and no one really thinks I have a Candida infection. Why is my male candidisis (glans) continue to occur. Only Clotrimazol + Beta… (something) help to put it away for a few days.
I drink vodka soda and a lime and when I do I have no symptoms. I feel tired sometimes but thats about it.
So my test results are as follows:
WBC 4.2 K/uL (Normal Range 3.9 – 11)
RBC 4.46 M/uL (Normal Range 4.0 – 6.0)

RDW 13.3 % (NR: 11.5-14.5)
PLT 264 K/uL (NR: 140-440)
MPV 10.8 fL (NR: 8.4 -11.9)
GFR Estimate Result >90 mL/MIN (NR: > 60)

I am sorry to bombard you all of you with all this data. I am wondering what other test I need to run to confirm or deny it. I had Jaundice as a kid so i was told I would always have some problems in the future so I dont know whether its an infection or not.
Any guidance would be greatly appreciated. I think my next doctor will be an infelicitous disease specialist so I want to be prepared to perform additional tests. I have been following a Semi Candida diet – I have literally not touched candy for a month(except for one weekend with my GF in New Orleans – Ice Cream). I have lost almost 20 pounds ( I am athletic so I look super skinny now – people are worried).
I am kind of at a loss. Thanks for reading this far.
