Can Candida Affect Weight Loss? A Guide



Candida is a type of yeast fungus that is naturally found in our intestines. It is usually harmless, however, if the balance of “good” and “bad” bacteria is off, it can cause a range of uncomfortable and damaging symptoms, including problems with weight. Read on to find out more about the impacts of candida and how to find the right weight loss programme with MYFITAPE.



What Are the Signs of Candida Overgrowth?



Candida overgrowth is caused by an imbalance in bacteria. It can be linked to taking antibiotics, a weakened immune system and high stress levels, amongst other things. Signs of an overgrowth include:





  • Brain fog and fatigue

  • Oral thrush and other yeast infections

  • Depression and mood swings

  • Sugar cravings and digestive issues

  • Unexplained weight gain or weight loss




When candida overgrowth is present, it can cause inflammation and an imbalance of the hormones that control appetite, leading to weight changes. It’s important to remember that, although there is evidence that candida can be linked, there are many other factors that determine weight loss and gain.

It is important to consult a healthcare professional when beginning a Candida diet as each person’s dietary needs may vary.

What are ways to identify Candida?

Candida can be identified by observing physical symptoms, a sample of skin scrapings or discharge from the affected area, or a urine sample or blood test. A physician may also do a physical exam or order additional tests such as a skin culture, a KOH test, a biopsy, or a culture of the entire genital area. Other potential tests to look for Candida include stool testing, a stool antigen test, and a PCR-based test.

What vitamins and supplements can help balance Candida levels in the body?

Some of the vitamins and supplements that can help balance Candida levels in the body are probiotics, probiotic-rich foods such as yogurt, sauerkraut, and kimchi, omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin D and zinc, undecylenic acid, garlic, Pau D’arco, oregano oil, and caprylic acid.

Are there any natural treatments for Candida overgrowth that can be used to support weight loss?

Yes, there are some natural treatments for Candida overgrowth that can help support weight loss. These include dietary adjustments such as avoiding sugars, fermented foods, and processed carbohydrates; consuming probiotics and prebiotics; avoiding moldy foods; and avoiding alcohol. Additionally, some herbs and supplements, including garlic, oregano oil, caprylic acid, and pau d’arco, have also been used to reduce Candida overgrowth and may help with weight loss. Speak to a qualified health practitioner before taking any herbal supplements.
