    I had problems for more then 10 years with symptoms like balanitis(foreskin and penis head) caused of fungus according to a doctor. I had rectal bleeding since 15 years. Its not severe but i cant use toilette paper if I want to avoid the bleeding. Before I had diarrea on a daily basis..but im much better now. I often feel fatigued but I have never thought that it could be caused by candida..but after seing my white tounge and doing a saliva test I have understod that it could be candida that is affecting my entire body. I have done endoscopy twice but the intestines looked very good. I have done test if I have a lack of any vitamin, but the blood test also looked good.

    I started Rasters strict diet 2 month ago without doing a cleanse. I would like to do that, but I already lost 10 pounds after this 6 weeks and dont want to loose anymore since im really thin. The symtoms is still coming and going but I think its a bit better than before.
    I have always been a healthy person, eating healty and often doing physical activities. So I have never seen myself as a person that should have this kind of issues. What do you suggest should be my next step? Should I just continue and have patience?

    Have you had any die-off symptoms? Are you taking any antifungals? Have you actually been tested for candida?
    The spit test really isn’t reliable, the idea behind it is that the candida spores in your saliva make it heavier so it will move towards the bottom in a glass of water, but a bacteria overload will do the same thing or even ‘healthy’ spit that is from someone who’s dehydrated.

    I’d recommend going back to your doctor and get swabs taken from your penis, a stool sample and blood tests to see if any comes back positive. These three (from what I’ve read) should allow the doctors to see where the candida is, ie just on your penis, in your bowels too, or everywhere.
    Good luck finding a doctor who will do the tests, they can be a bit funny about it. Mine, for example, has sent me to a specialist rather than testing me himself, hopefully the specialist will test me (but it’s a long wait).

    Thank you for taking the time to answer and your advices. Yes Im taking antifungals. I havent noticed any die off symptoms except that I have been sick for a couple of week, but that might be of other reasons. I havent been tested for Candida, so you are right, that is what I should do first. Here in Sweden I think it wont be any problem finding a doctor. We have free and effective helathcare for people with fungis on the dick ;).

    I have noticed its a lot better now when I cut the sugar and coffee. The few times I have ”cheated“ with coffee and oat milk I have noticed that the visual symptoms have worsen. I think also the buckwheat is not that good for me.
