Beware of this. There is tons of, IMO, BS out there about candida. Yes it's a yeast and yes doctors are well aware of it. There are actual tests for it, doctors can sometimes see it, and there are treatments for it with over 90% cure rate like diflucan. The people that tend to write about candida online seem to theorize that it causes problems from A to Z. It may be that excess sugar does not agree with these people, or it may be that they've convinced themselves that candida is the cause of their (insert condition here) and just want to believe that removing sugars are going to starve the candida and cure their ills.
