Never apologize for any questions you have. They're all valid, and this one is too! Lupus or UCTD or any other autoimmune diseases do tend to cause a yeast overgrowth in the system. It's been proven. So, to combat that, I take acidophilus. The good stomach bacteria found in yogurt. I take it in pill form and it has been a life saver! You need to take quite a bit of it to make a difference, so just eating yogurt probably isn't enough. If you go to a health food store, get the kind that is refridgerated and has at least 15 billion organisms in it. Also, make sure you talk to your doctor first before taking them. Just keep your docs informed on what you're ingesting! But this should make a big difference for you.
From one Canuck to another!
