Once you have a diagnosis of ABS, the treatment may not be simple or straightforward. Your primary provider may decide to try anti-fungal medications but some patients respond to medication and other do not. Some patients take long courses or several courses of the medication before seeing results and there are side effect to most of the medications and they can be hard on your liver.
Whether of not you decide to take medications, almost all patients must abstain from alcohol and maintain a low glycemic index diet at least until symptoms subside and the stool culture comes back negative for yeast. Many patients decide to maintain the diet long term in order to prevent a relapse.
Environmental triggers are important to identify in addition to food that provokes symptoms, because ABS may be brought on by mold in your house, yeast and mold exposure at work, such as exposure to soil, moldy substances, or damp locations.
It’s important to read up on the treatment of yeast overgrowth as many physicians are not aware of the severe symptoms that can occur in patients with overgrowth.Leave a reply →
