Ive been living with Candida Yeast infection for about 18 years now . I didn’t know till like a year ago what Candida was?
Im 40ty years old hispanic male . Ive been living with Candida Yeast infection for about 18 years now . I didnt know till like a year ago what Candida was . After reading about the symptoms ,skin conditions and tongue infection . Now my question is im starting to feel it in my throat and upper stomach and lower back . So basically my throat liver and kidneys. Im getting worried that the infection has spread to my organisms . I researched the internet on supplements to take Foods to eat and not eat ect. Do you think its to late for me to get cured with supplements. Do they work because i dont have insurance. I know the infection in my body is getting worse now . I dont know why or how i got this infection ive been tested for diabeties ,HIV,STDs or whatever else the doctor asked to get tested for the reason for me having this infection especially on my tongue and inner cheeks to comes and goes but its still getting worse as well i know what triggers it but im embarrassed to admit it . What do you think doc am i screwed bbecause I’ve read very dificult to treat and cure this infection especially if it has entered the blood stream which im pretty positive it has i have every single sympton from having fungus on some of my toes that started 18 years ago .I get ringworms from time to time in my groing area . I get thrush on my tongue . My throat feels stripped at times hurts when swallow all the way to my upper stomach with heart burn . I mean everything the ringing of the ears , fatigue, foggy brain at times ,muscle twitching. Doc my main question and concern is do you think the supplements with diet will work or is it going to take hospitalizing .
Hi and welcome to question doctors.com
Candida is a stubborn bacteria specially if it is systemic ..
But it can be controlled and treatable with diet and supplements ..
I wish you success and power to destroy them completely ..
After your symptoms have subsided and you have completed the cleanse and the diet, you should continue eating a diet that is high in protein and high-fiber vegetables, and limit grains, fruits, sugar and high-starch vegetables like white potatoes. Continue to consume fermented vegetables and kefir to help your body stay in balance and keep the candida at bay.
No chance of success to treat it with diet
U need medicatiins such as nystatin or amphotericin B
Also use ketoconazole topically
I suggest u start fast cuz it seems you are already too late
its a resistant form of infection. start on higher broad spectrum anti fungals. increase your immunity by healthy diet and vitamin / protein supplements.
YOU SEEM TO BE PRONE TO FUNGAL INFECTIONS. LOWERED IMMUNITY IS THE COMMONEST CAUSE. GET YOUR IMMUNITY RAISED BY EATING HEALTHY FOOD,PLENTY OF FRUITS AND GREEN VEGETABLES,ESPECIALLY SPINACH.
if its for almost 18 years now,then i am afraid nothing much can be done about it now. Only thing that can be done is strengthen your immune system that may naturally combat the recurrent yeast attacks
