Candida Albicans and weight gain

Candida Albicans and weight gain can be linked together because of the sugar cravings that are associated with having candidiasis. Sugar is probably the biggest reason why more people are over weight now than they were years.

Sugar cravings with candidiasis

When people have Candidiasis in their intestines it can cause sugar cravings because sugar is the Candida’s favorite food. When the Candida is getting fed it populates your intestines even more, so then the sugar cravings come on even more. It then becomes a visious circle, and not everyone realizes they are craving the sugar.

Not everyone who is over weight will be suffering from Candida Albicans overgrowth but if you have any of the other symptoms associated with candidiasis then it might be worth investigating further. THe same canbe said that not everyone with Candida Albicans overgrowth will be overweight.

Yeast infections and weight gain

Gaining weight can increase you chances of getting a yeast infection even if the Candida Albicans yeast isn’t the cause of your weight gain. It also increases your risk of diabetes which will increase your risk of yeast infections even more.

Gaining weight gives the Candida more places to live on your skin. It will have a better chance of mutating in skin folds that generally wouldn’t be there.

Your sugar levels

Having diabetes raises your body’s blood sugar levels so the Candida has more natural food to help it mutate. If you have a yeast infection and are overweight it is worth going to see your doctor to have a test for diabetes just to see if it’s the cause of your yeast infection.
