    Hi there

    I’m a 28yo male in London and think I have candida. I have most of the gastro systems which have been present since I returned from 3 months in Africa (daily doxycyclene) in 2008.

    I’ve arranged to see a specialist for testing in 10 days, but I really want to start the no carb / sugar diet asap both for weight loss and less discomfort. I’m worried though that if I start the diet then when I’m tested in 10 days the results won’t be as strong / positive as is the actual case. Does this make sense? Any advice? Or will the degree of my condition still be as evident after 10 days of essentially ketosis?

    Thanks

    I’d wait 10 days for professional advice before attempting the diet. The diet lasts long term for most people and I tell most to plan on a 6-18 month recovery to get over this with a good plan.
