    I was just wondering if there was any relationship between Candida yeast ovegrowth and gluten. For example, is Candida overgrowth a symptom of gluten sensitivity? Or, should there be any reason someone should go gluten free and candida free versus just gluten free? Just curious and I don’t want to be eating too many fruits as opposed to vegetables if it is bad.

    Hi Austin,

    Yes there is definitely a relationship.  It is not necessary to go on a candida free diet for those with gluten sensitivity.  However; many with gluten sensitivity have a weakened immune system that allows for the propagation of yeast.  Sugar cravings, bloating after eating, discolored yellow nail beds, and white patches on the tongue are all symptoms of candida problems. 

    All the best,

    Hi,

    What about the “spit into a glass of water” test. Does that actually prove a candida issue?
