Hi have IBS-d, my last stool test showed i had huge amounts of yeast cells. My doc tells me it doesnt cause D, can anyone add any thoughts to this?  Thanks

Unless I'm mistaken, yeast is a type of bacteria and yes, having too much of certain kinds of bacteria can cause D and other gut problems. Sounds like you need some antibiotics or something like that to kill off some of that excess yeast, then get some probiotics to put good, useful bacteria back in.

Hi there, thanks for the post. I have had Flasgyn antibiotics, it didnt seem to help. But will speak with my GI to see if there is another one i could try. Im now taking VSL3 which seems to help alot. Thanks again!

Candida is actually a fungus. If you have a large amount of yeast, you might ask your doc if she thinks taking an anti-fungal like Diflucan could help relieve your symptoms!
