I have been lurking on this forum and reading numerous and articles relating to Candida and otherwise for the past few weeks.
A change in diet (went from eating healthy to a heavy carb/sugar diet) and two UTIs plummeted me into a series of irritating symptoms. I have been eating much healthier now and have incorporated some anti-fungal foods into my diet. Though, I’m still cheating. I’m not drinking alcohol any longer, however.
Tomorrow I’m going to the doctor and I am going to request being tested for Candida Overgrowth and SIBO.
Any advice or is there anything else I should ask about/or be tested for? I want to make the most out of this appointment.
-mild visual hallucinations
-not really doing the #2 that much anymore
-intolerance to high carb and sugar food
-easily upset stomach and increased acid reflux
-bloating and excessive gas pressure
-gas pressure in chest often triggers anxiety
-intolerance to marijuana and tobacco smoke
Should I just present these symptoms without suggested any self-diagnoses?
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!March 21, 2014 at 3:39 am #117156

Mention some specific things:
-Ask about digestive disorders, etc.
-Get possible referral to digestive doctor (GI doctor)
-Examine liver enzymes possibly
-Ask about stomach acid
-Ask about allergies
-Ask about thyroid
-Don’t say candida but say yeast
Most western doctors don’t do much in regards to digestive disorders or problems. They also only prescribe drugs only pretty much, and there isn’t a single drug that likely can help you unless you have a specific cause, etc.
