Do I need special diet with Nystatin to combat Candida?
I have Candida. I've had 4 tests done all of which show a +3
imbalance of Candida Albicans. I have related symptoms. I tried a strict
diet and supplements for 3 months but symptoms haven't subsided, neither has
Candida after another test.
I am therefore now going onto Nystatin Mycostatin 500,000 unit oral tablets
3-times daily. See http://home.intekom.com/pharm/bm_squib/mycostab.html
What the product leaflet doesn't tell you is:
1. Do I need to follow a strict anti-Candida diet whilst on these, or are
they strong enough that is it unnecessary?
2. How long should I stay on them in order to combat 3+ Candida? I've
read varying info from 72 hours - 4 months! My underlying symptoms such as
anxiety may not subside immediately after the Candida has been eradicated.
Thanks for your help. If you wish to discuss whether or not I have Candida,
please take the discussion to other related threads as I am not in any doubt
and do not wish to discuss it any more - I wish to take action. If I don't
have it, then taking this course of treatment won't make things any worse,
so I'd like to try either way.
