It is often asked “why don’t medical doctors acknowledge candida overgrowth?” This is because they have been trained to only see yeast overgrowth in cases of VERY compromised immune function. This however is not the case. A lower grade level of yeast overgrowth can be systemic and not to the extent that is seen in those immune-compromised situations. Yet in spite of this lack of acknowledgement by the industry, it is estimated that 1 in 3 women and 1 in 5 men have a yeast overgrowth of some kind. Try our candida test if you think you might have systemic yeast problem.
This is near epidemic. The most common reasons for a yeast overgrowth are antibiotic use/abuse, birth control meds, steroid drugs, a compromised immune system, and sexual transmission. The organism can be passed sexually from person to person and if the receiver’s immune system is not up to par it can begin to over multiply and infect or re-infect the sexual partner. Men are often carriers of yeast but they also have fewer symptoms of this than women do. Typical symptoms of male yeast overgrowth in the “carrier” stage might include jock itch, foot and nail fungus, skin rashes, and overall fatigue with no obvious cause. I talk more about this in my video Questions about Candida 5 of 5.
One very important point to consider is the ongoing health and well being after the yeast is brought under control.
