So I received the biopsy back from my endoscopy the other day, and turns out I have Candida throughout my GI tract starting at the esophagus. My GI called in diflucan for me.. has anyone else had this and taken this med? Is it a common issue with crohns or am I just lucky enough to have gotten it also. Please let me know your experience with this and if it helped you feel any better, as well as be a contributor to crohns or ulceration.

Surfer, Candida is common in people, thank goodness it's not limited to CD people. You should be fine with the Diflucan, I have taken it several times over the years with no issues. Candida is a fungus that we have in our esophagus, you just have too much. And it did not have any real affect on either my CD or UC. You read the last statement right, I am blessede with both.

Take care.
