    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.

    My Symptoms:
    -fatigue
    -foggy brain
    -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
    -constant belching

    Should I just present these symptoms without suggested any self-diagnoses?

    Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

    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.
