Over Abundance of Yeast

@ossobuco,
I figure in your sister's case that the thrush/candida is - what is the word, I don't remember, so I'll just say exploitative.. not a primary thing.

I'm sorry for you all re the diagnosis, or lack of it.. Back in my day (she says, rolling eyes) people really wanted to figure out what was going on. Not that md's were so wonderful, but because of the need to figure things out so to do well...

But then maybe it is a complicated thing.

Any chance of a second/whatever opinion??

@ossobuco,
I don't know. She didn't find out that her primary physician had left town until she had been admitted the first time. Thereafter she was pretty well stuck with hospital assigned doctors and there were a gazillion of them by the time it was all over. In between hospitalization four and five we did get her to a new permanent primary physician who is now coordinating all the various appointments for blood work, etc. But she has a surgeon for her bad knee, another for the galbladder, a blood specialist monitoring her erratic white cell count, and her primary physician, plus all the other specialists that looked her over these past several weeks.

But no diagnosis.

@Foxfyre,
Wow...I am learning so much. Thank you all for your input. I am a bit unfocused (feeling positively like a flake lately) , have had some skin issues - dry patches and itchy in places. A friend told me I probably had too much yeast in my system and told me about the diet. I am not sure I could stick with it. I need to study it more - but hearing what you all have said makes me thing that there is definitely something to it.

@Foxfyre,
Slough of despond.

Makes me crazy, and I don't know your sister.

I was a spoiled brat for many years, knowing who was the chief resident, knowing those with the best reps in the community... even though I was a lower middle class person, albeit with insurance. When I got breast cancer, I had superior and very quick advice. But I always knew I was lucky.

I'm on the other end of the stick now. Still, I'm not sure the care I'm getting is so much worse than the care most others are getting, even with super insurance.

It is a puzzlement. I do remember the docs caring and arguing about details.

@ossobuco,
Mismi, I posit that most of your friends aren't suffering from candidiasis.

Dry skin is normal. And so on.

Foyfyre's sister, I'd like to hear about the docs talking.

@ossobuco,
Yes, all those years I worked in hospitals, I knew who the best doctors were and how to access them. Being out of that loop now, I feel very much at the mercy of the system. Hubby had a quack for a personal physician for years until we changed insurance requiring him to change doctors and now has an excellent primary physician and an excellent specialist who took care of his cancer and follow up. Absolutely no complaints. I never go to the doctor, but I understand my primary care doctor is a good one in the same clinic with his. Smile

But I definitely feel my sister has been stuck with some who either didn't have a clue or didn't give a damn. Maybe both. She does like her new primary care physician though so hopefully things are looking up now.

@ossobuco,
I'm dealing with a come down. I used to have blue cross of california and could choose my physician, and did..

Now, well, never mind.

But never mind me, I'm not happy that others don't get to see the sharp folks. Such a crap shoot.

back in the old days of my early lab days, there was a hierarchy, and meetings, and the clinic patients were discussed with the seniors present...

@mismi,
Dry skin can also be a sign of thyroid issues. Or lots and lots and lots of other things, including just dry air.

@mismi,
My girlfriend actually did the diet because she and I could not afford the hospital bills... and low and behold, if you stick to the diet, not only do you feel so much better, but you will reduce the yeast in your body naturally. It's sad that this information is not more public, but it doesn't make anyone money, so it is kept from the mainstream. Look at a few of the diets, because they are not all congruent, but stay away from bread and sugars...thats just the basic. IT WORKS!!! Good luck.
