1 – Fifteen years of Ulcerative Colitis
2 – In 2005 had my large intestine taken out
3 – Been feeling great for 4 years
4 – Month ago strange taste in mouth started
5 – Old stomach symptoms came back a week into nystatin treatment
6 – Was hospitalized for a week, just got back (Dehydrated, lost 20 pounds in 3 weeks)
My GI said I had a small intestine infection (Poutchitis) gave me anti-biotics Metrondiazole (flagyl) to see if could clear up infection.
After a week of the meds I feel MUCH better.
Also had a doc look at my throat and listen to my pasty mouth and weird mouth unbalance, he said he was 99.9% sure it wasn’t Candida.
I still have the weird mouth taste stuff going on, pasty white tongue and at this point I’m not sure WHAT is going on (do I have Candida or not). I almost feel like walking into a clinic and getting a test – is there an official test for it? Blood test or something.
I’ve tried the spit test and sometimes nothing happens and other times it gets all foggy and a bit if the “legs” go down but not as much as all the pics on the web. Plus, I have nothing to compare it to (what spit is NORMALLY supposed to look like) so that has left me with a big question mark over my head.
Is there an official test than one can have in a clinic to see, FACTUALLY if I have to stick to the diet or not? I just met this girl and it’s getting in the way of me knowing if we can kiss, have sex etc.
Any help would be appreciated,

with your large intestine removed, it could be difficult to detox. I am a newbie, but I do know one thing, antibiotics and antifungals are a sure fire way to contract health problems with resistant Candida later, especially if you have a sugary diet.
Make sure to begin taking probiotics that is a very important part of healing naturally, and especially if you have Candida. Even if you do not, the probiotics are nutritious and strengthen your immune system.
I wonder how the doctor can be 99% sure it isn’t Candida, did he give you any kind of explanation? Has he ever treated anyone for Candida?
I don’t know much about testing, I’m looking for answers myself.
