Has anyone out there with liver disease had Candida as well? I'm 47, male have Hep C that has been under control since I found out 5 years ago with supplements. My numbers have been kept low and I've been fine until 3 months ago when I started losing weight rapidly. I"ve lost alomost 20 pounds and I was failry lean to begin with. My doctor thought I was gluten intolerant so I began eating a lot of glute free things which is good, but also bananas, potatoes, cashews, cheese...all of which Yeast thrives on. Not to mention a byproduct of yeast is alcohol...Let's hope my liver isn';t trashed.... Then we finally got a stool sample and was diagnosed with Candida and Rhodoturula.
Of course I've stopped ALL sugar and starches, they've got me on Nystatin, but nowhere, in all my research have I seen anything about yeast infections and weight LOSS....Can anyone out there help? DO you know of any good Gastroenterologists in the state of WA?
