Candida and other fungal infections

Fungal infections have symptoms that can be identical to Ld if they reach the bloodstream (systemic) and most doctor's do not or cannot diagnose it any better than they can LD. Sepsis caused by Candida species is "clinically indistinguishable" from bacterial infections. This is why it's difficult to diagnose correctly.

A good LLMD should check you for fungal infections, as probiotics only cover the intestines and systemic fungal infections can be deadly. There are more than Candida albicans.

A book called "The Yeast Connection" by Dr. William Crook popularized the hypothesis that Candida is a major pathogen that can weaken the immune system, allowing other infections to occur. Dr. Crook also contends that toxins produced by Candida could contribute to the development of multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis and other autoimmune disorders.
