Candida Overgrowth

Posted by kateallie @kateallie, Feb 9 8:27pm

I am almost 59, and have been suffering for years with Candida, more than five years undiagnosed until I was in stage 4 of the disease stage 5 can be organ failure or even death, I’ve been in treatment for a little over a year. I have researched till I’m cross-eyed. I know more about this than my doctor, but the second I stop taking anti-fungal it returns within days. I have done detox, restrictive diets (no sugar, carbs, etc.) (do not feed the beast!) until my weight become very low, but to no avail. It has taken so much of my life from me, at times I have been so sick, weak, in pain, I could not walk unassisted. Prior to contracting this I weight trained, could speed walk 3 miles in less than a half hour.
Currently I’m on oral anti-fungal as well as vaginal meds and probiotics to stay close to well as possible. I have resigned myself that this will be my life or this will eventually be the end of me (it had gotten into my heart a few months ago), is in my ears still, vagina, and I battle oral thrush, but I have finally had a clean blood test for the first time in 15 months. Please help me find the cure, or a doctor who knows of the cure(a real doctor not a internet sales person). Thank you.

Hi @kateallie and welcome to Connect. That must be so frustrating and exhausting to find no treatment's that work.

Here is another discussion where you can what others have said about candida: https://connect.mayoclinic.org/discussion/candida/

Back to you @kateallie, where did the candida start? Is it all stemming from digestive system?

Look for a functional medical doctor. I just finished my treatment and I have no symptoms.

@mm2020– Welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. It sounds as if you have had this for a while. My sister had Candida too. She made her own food and brought it with her for over a year. She contacted hers from too many antibiotics. It finally fizzled out.

What have your symptoms been and what treatment did you finish?
