Yeast/fungal issues have a lot of symptoms that cross over with Lyme. With your intense sugar cravings though, it's a fairly certain thing. Pirouette posts a very thorough overview (including testing) about
Yeast/fungal issues at the bottom of page 2 of the "New to Lyme?" thread.
"Saliva test – since Y/FO in the mouth generally originates in the gut the saliva test might help indicate what is going on in the gut—but not always.
Blood test—might tell you about
a systemic problem if antibodies are found in the blood.
Stool test provides the most information but is also not always accurate. I had chronic Y/FO yet my blood test was negative and my stool tests showed just a slight imbalance. However, stool tests like Doctor’s Data can be quite beneficial because it indicates susceptibility–which of a dozen Rx and natural antifungals are effective against the Y/F strains found.
These tests run $300-400 and also can tell you if you have leaky gut and a likely systemic problem.
The stool test can also indicate a leaky gut problem by identifying antibodies created to specific foods. If you have leaky gut, it’s likely you have both local Y/FO and systemic Y/FO."
