Diet Doc's Dr. Rao Explains The Role of Candida in Weight Management

DENVER, CO--(Marketwired - October 25, 2016) - Candida is a type of yeast which can cause migraines, yeast infections dizziness, fatigue and other symptoms when an overgrowth in the digestive tract is present. The most common medically recognized manifestations are urinary tract infections and sores which can occasionally show up in the mouth and throat areas. Candida in the digestive tract can be confirmed via stool test, or by looking for the presence of antibodies in the blood. Several versions of the candida diet exist which limit the consumption of sugar and fermented foods with the goal of starving off the yeast in the intestinal tract. Caprylic acid is often used to treat candida, along with other OTC natural extracts. A focus on gut health where fiber intake is increased is also common.

As far as weight loss on the candida diet is concerned, Dr. Nishant Rao, Medical Director of Diet Doc believes that, "Given the generally healthy aspect of some of the components including the sugar limitations, one would expect some weight loss. Yet, this makes it hard to determine whether the weight loss has to do with the loss of candida or the diet." He continues, "Because GI candida has no effect on the number of calories you burn per day, its effect on weight management cannot be that high, but it is possible, and even likely that its presence in the GI tract causes inflammation, and we know that inflammation can begin the road to obesity so there may be some connection for a small population of people."

However, Dr. Rao suggests that simply cleaning up the diet by eliminating the obvious junk foods and processed foods, along with a normalizing of one's carbohydrate intake may be more useful for individuals who are not necessarily experiencing candida symptoms but are looking to reduce inflammation and lose weight. Patients of Diet Doc are reporting weight loss results of up to 20 pounds per month and are greatly reducing their risks of inflammatory, insulin-related and cardiovascular diseases with doctor-prescribed diet plans, powerful prescriptions and one-on-one coaching.
