Testosterone and candida

Common Questions and Answers about Testosterone and candida


Avatar m tn But zinc can be stimulating in small ways -- it ups immune system activity and it also can affect testosterone levels, usually in a beneficial way but I suppose a very sensitive person could notice. You also could be sensitive to the picolinic acid.

I would have your testosterone levels checked, prolactin, sex binding hormone, and get an iron saturation test to make sure there is no build up in the testicles. Also another thought that came to mind is the Pot may have triggered a Candida overgrowth which can casue those problems. you could also try Candida support made by Now.
Avatar n tn My kidneys and liver and creatnin (sp?) came back as red flags and my testosterone levels dropped from 1150/and 990 on the previous two tests to 313,365 and 460 on these three tests this month. I am always exhausted and cranky and I have developed some kindv skin rash on my groin ,back of ears and side of nose. this rash has come and gone over the last two yrs and I've never had any skin issues ever...I'v also noticed a whitish buildup on my tongue...
Avatar m tn I also get acne as a result of my thyroid issues (as it messes with estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone levels). The bloating and intestinal issues definitely could be related. I recently had a colonoscopy and the biopsy of my small intestine was "abnormal probably due to celiac disease". However, blood tests came back negative for celiac.
Avatar f tn If you were having issues with the progesterone - you may find that this hormone was spilling off into testosterone and that would cause some issues for you too. If there is too much progesterone coming in then it will spill off into testosterone. Do you have acne?
Avatar m tn That is interesting, I did have thrush and rectal itching. This could be from Candida? That is interesting. I was treated w fluconazole. but the symptoms continue...
1202943 tn?1347840652 Great job tracking your labs with symptoms. That's a challenge for many thyroid patients and hard to explain to the community how important doing what you did is! :) You can see your Free T3 lab has slowly increased as time went on. Going slow as it looks here is great. W it can hen FT3 is irratic, it can be tough on the patient but in your case it climbed up through time.
396308 tn?1213373632 I do feel run down and that would be explained by an overgrowth of Candida but I am overweight and depressed and this can make you run down I think. I really don't know what to do.. learning to relax and be happy and being on the Candida diet dont go together and I need to know what the right thing to do is. I have quit uni twice cause of this and need to get it sorted really..
Avatar m tn No longer dizzy, crotch itching is almost non-existent and testosterone is improving with medication. This was something that I thought I would try, and it's given me a great deal of success so far. The symptoms of candida are numerous, they can effect people in a number of ways.
709686 tn?1277432159 I have been having weird aches and pains in my joints and muscles and am PRAYING it is the candida (although my dr says no science to that) and not some type of arthritis (I have been tested some and waiting on results of more testing.) I just posted a few minutes ago b/c I don't know if my newfound anxiety is causing the pains or if the pains are there and causing me anxiety b/c doctor can't figure out what's wrong!
Avatar f tn I often wonder if some people that say they are gluten intolerant actually have candida and dont know it. If you have candida and eat gluten, you will feel uncomfortable. It would be easy to assume its the gluten making you feel bad- its the candida feasting on the gluten. Three-Lac is a great probiotic, the best by far, I have used it myself combined with a temporary candida diet and injesting natural anti-fungles (herbs) like NOW candida clear in capsules.
Avatar n tn She's getting an Oral Glucose Tolerance Test, to rule out diabetes. She should also be tested for Candida-her symptoms are consistent with Candida-, something that doctors don't usually look for. Beware that sometimes it's missed in their testing. You may look into having her do a screening self-test for Candida. Search under "Saliva test for Candida".
Avatar n tn Hi! Thanks for your quick response. I had labs done by a few different doctors in the past. It seemed to indicate i was on the lower side on testosterone and estrogen but still within "normal ranges." I tried some creams and they did not seem to help...quite the opposite i was more aggressive and moody. I am quite young, 22, so i don't have menopause but intercourse has always been painful.
Avatar m tn Usually most of the times bloating and constipation occurs when after I masturbate and ejaculate. I also did the Candida spit test at home and resulted positive. Could Candida do this to me? Please help me out. Summary of symptoms: recurrent wind and bloating, recurrent flatulence (sometimes burns the rectum), recurrent constipation (usually after masturbation), feeling pushing under the liver usually after meals, but not always. Stool shape changes, upper abdominal pain (sometimes).
Avatar m tn Low testosterone, low Vit D or Vit B12 too could also be the cause. So, please look back and see if you were tested for these. If all these are ruled out, then chronic fatigue syndrome should be seriously considered. Please discuss with your doctor. Take care! The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you.
Avatar m tn Hey i read a post that said that candida can affect hiv tests and provide with false positive results. I too have Candida Albicans and wanted to know because i was thinking of taking my final 6 months hiv test should i wait for the Candida to subside?
Avatar f tn Hmmm.. low immune system. I googled that and 1 symptom is low platelet count and that is what I have. I will definitely ask my doctor about that. I actually have a new doctor now so I hope he's good. And I will ask about imbalance in vagina flora. Thank you so much!
Avatar f tn I did my own research and found that I have almost all candida symptoms, as well as my dog! Patchy hair loss and skin flaking. Even finding mold/yeast on his skin, and mine. It's the worst in my eyelashes, conjunctiva and scalp. So I just started a candida diet and natural home remedies for an organic candida cleanse. At first my symptoms got worse the first day, and I noticed candida in my stool and urine. Now My eyes feel better than they have in a year.
Avatar m tn But long term use of testosterone and other steroids have transient effects and there is no scientific evidence that performance is enhanced. There is abuse liability so I would suggest you to follow up with a physician or endocrinologist for case to case prescriptions. Take care!
Avatar f tn Suboxone not only effects sex drive it effects Testosterone levels. There is a lot of misunderstanding of this out there. Viagra and Cialis without sex drive equals an erection that allows for sex but no satisfaction to the male if there is no drive. Low testosterone causes low sex drive and erectile dysfunction.
Avatar m tn What is the risk of contracting HIV when licking a penis with a geographic tongue or tongue affected by candida given that no ejaculation occurred and there was no bleeding or pain or discomfort on the tongue?
Avatar m tn Hi and thanks. So Candida cant be transmitted skin to skin and with vaginal liquid to my skin? I thought is a disease that can be passed from fluids or touch because is a mushroom...
Avatar n tn I did the candida diet and it really reset my hunger levels. I still try to limit the amount of carbs I eat because when I have too many of them, I start to feel the constant hunger creeping back in.
Avatar f tn I just asked my neuro to test me for candida. He has tested me for everything under the sun and I have some suspicion that I could have candida and leaky gutt.
Avatar n tn The doctor checked my testosterone level due to and adverse affect of opiates, and I didnot have any. He put me on supplemental testosterone, but I have read it would come back naturally and taking supplements will stop the natural production of my testosterone. Anyone had this issue.
919239 tn?1269394658 im in the same boat battled for years and years with anxiety and depression i finally found out last year my testosterone levels are at that of a 70 yr old im 32 not good...
