Gluten intolerance can contribute to Candida. In my experience too many doctors are quick to jump on yeast as the culprit. We all have yeast in our intestines. They are normal to an extent. It is the overgrowth that creates problems for many. Gluten tends to lead to an imbalance in normal bacterial flora thus contributing to yeast overgrowth.
This process is being studied at the University of Maryland currently.
Great converstation by the way!
