Have any of you been on the IBSTreatmentcenter.com website?  I'm wandering if anyone has had the food allergies testing or testing for Candid (yeast overgrowth).  I had been symptom free for over a year and then after taking a strong antibiotic for 10 days and developing a vaginal yeast infection my symptom returned.  After reading on their website I learned that IBS syptoms may be caused by a yeast overgrowth.  I have taken many antibiotics in my day and am curious if this could be the cause of my IBS. 
 
I added a subject to your thread... It should help you get more replies. -- Lil

Yes, it can. One thing you might try is a breathalyzer test to see if you have bad bacteria (including yeast) in your guts. A round of certain types of antibiotics can kill it off.

You can also just try taking probiotics and see if you can't overcome it with them alone. That's the easier and cheaper option. But any time you take antibiotics, you should take protiotics to keep this very problem from happening again (as you seem prone to get a yeast infection after antibiotoics).

I'm not sure of any antibiotics that can kill yeast (fungus), but I have taken natural antifungals that have helped a lot. If your doctor won't prescribe a precription for diflucan (antifungal), maybe you can look into the naturals (caprylic acid, olive leaf extract, oregano oil...). My IBS symptoms are very much yeast (fungus) related. I think that's why the probiotics are so successful for many...they are putting good bacteria back into your gut, squeezing out the yeast, where yeast had been allowed to proliferate from things like antibiotics. You may also want to reduce (eliminate?) refined sugar and grains for a little while, as they feed the yeast in your body.

Is this the same as the breathalyser being used to check the alcohol content?
