Causes of Yeast Infection, Health Effects, and Remedies

Causes of Yeast Infection, Health Effects, and Remedies

Q: Do bio-identical estrogen and progesterone, or other medicines, contribute to Candidiasis (yeast infection)? - Fibromyalgia Patient

A: Candidiasis is an infection caused by the yeast Candida. Normally Candida is present in “friendly” concentrations in the intestines and is helpful in the metabolism of nutrients and maintenance of a healthy intestinal environment. In some situations, the yeast can overgrow and become a more nasty fungus which can cause symptoms such as itching, skin rashes, white spots in the mouth, and fatigue.

The overgrown Candida secretes toxins that travel to different parts of the body and can cause symptoms, and the fungus can grow out tentacles called hyphae, which can actually puncture the intestines and cause a syndrome called leaky gut syndrome (with pain, diarrhea and bloating).

People with fibromyalgia are more prone to developing Candidiasis, but there are other factors that increase the risk.

• The most common ones include medications such as antibiotics that destroy friendly bacteria and Lactobacillus but do not bother the Candida, and thus allow the Candida to overgrow.

• Prednisone, thyroid medicine, and even hormones such as estrogen and progesterone can also increase the risk of Candidiasis.

• If Candidiasis develops, there are treatments including antibiotics specifically for Candida (Diflucan and Nystatin).

• Certain yeast diets are available,*

• And probiotic supplements of Lactobacillus can help balance out the normal yeast population in the intestines.

Your doctor can also work with you on what may have caused the Candidiasis and if it’s related to medicines, whether the medicines need to be adjusted or discontinued, or simply continue the medicines but also treat and control the Candidiasis.

- Dr. Mark J Pellegrino, MD

Candidiasis, and HRT
Posted by: sterryaz
Jun 5, 2009
Dear Dr. Pellegrino, After a hysterectomy 15 months ago due to endometriosis, I was diagnosed with CFS, Fibro, and later Candidiasis. I still have not been able to adjust my hormones correctly and each time they change I'm in another flare, especially the candida. So I can tell you with no doubt there is a HUGE hormone component with the Candida, especially- Estrogen (Estradiol B), and Progesterone, which I have personal experience from. I started with regular HRT then the last 10 months BioIdentical HRT Creams. Unfortunately I haven't found a doctor out there that understands this connection, and I have been to Many top doc's. If there is any way someone can help me with this or lead me in the direction of someone who can, it would be the greatest gift. I live in Scottsdale, AZ, but I am willing to travel. Thank you! Susan
