Sometimes a Systemic Yeast Infection can have light symptoms, and because of this they're dismissed as nothing to concerned about. The problem is, this allows the yeast to enter the bloodstream where a lot of different problems can eventuate and can even become a life-threatening situation.

The body naturally has a certain amount of yeast that lives in the body in small quantities and actually help the body, without doing any harm to it. There are also different types of microorganisms inside the body that are there to keep the yeast in check so an infection does not occur.

On-going stress attacks, poor choices of food, normal pregnancy changes, immune system deficiency diseases, antibiotic medications and other disease may abolish the tiny microorganisms and thereby allow the Systemic Yeast Infection Symptoms to rage.

The Systemic Yeast Infection Symptoms can differ from each individual, but here a few of the most usual ones:

Heavy sense of exhaustion and unusual run down feelings may arise.

1. The feelings of sensory disturbances, unusual muscle aches and pains, continual headaches, constant dizziness, and complaints of the sufferering of persistent tiredness are signs of a person with Systemic Yeast Infection.

2. Unusual or sudden sensitivity to chemicals or new food allergies.
Arising troubles which haven't occurred before with several chemicals or foods are common with those suffering from Systemic Yeast Infection Symptoms.

3. Problems with the gastrointestinal tract.

On many occasions, as touched on in the previous detail of the food allergies, flatulence, inflammatory bowel disease, rectal itching, constipation, and diarrhea are the most common of the Symptoms.

It is even possible for thrush, a Yeast Infection affecting the mouth and/or throat, to develop.

4. Onset of urinary and genital problems.

5. Development of hives and skin rashes.

You could even be having a case of hives, and not know where they came from.

6. Suddenly feeling irritable or mildly depressed.

Many times people complain of Systemic Yeast Infection Symptoms that include: mental confusion, feeling of being in a 'fog', difficulty focusing or concentrating, sleepness nights, memory loss, and decreased attention span.

7. Problems with the autoimmune system.

Some autoimmune disorders that normally become worse from a Systemic Yeast Infection are sarcoidosis, scleroderma, myasthenia gravis, arthritis, hemolytic anemia, thrombocytopenic purpura, or systemic lupus erythematosus.

Yeast flourish on a body that is fed with sugar, refined starch, and chemical additives.
These chemicals, starches and sugars are also readily present in bread, cookies, chips and other junk foods which are a large part of many peoples diets.

When someone is under immense stress, the microorganisms in the body that control the yeast start to die off.

Anytime you think you may have a Systemic Yeast Infection Symptoms, you need to check with your doctor about what tests need to be run to determine what your body's level of Yeast organism is.
All in all, remember that it's vital to know if you are dealing with a Systemic Yeast Infection Symptoms so you can get the proper treatment.

    Is it okay to use TUMS as a calcium supplement?
    I’m fifteen years old and my doctor recommended it because I hardly ever take in dairy products or products containing enough calcium. I also have take Vitamin D3 once a day.

    Also, what benefits does calcium have for your body?

    1. bare4winds

      NO, NO, NO to the TUMS

      Many people routinely use antacids for relief of heartburn or as a calcium supplement. The truth is that both of these choices are usually nutritionally unsound.

      THE BOTTOM LINE

      Stomach acid is required for good digestion. Poor digestion produces heartburn. People with heart-burn take antacids. Antacids reduce stomach acid. OOPS-more heartburn. Stomach acid is required for good mineral absorption, including calcium & magnesium. Calcium carbonate antacids neutralize the stomach acid needed for their absorption.

      The stomach’s job is to produce and hold digestive acid and enzymes. When antacids are used regularly, the stomach senses this and, over time, increases its acid production rate set point. Taking antacids to reduce acid can lead to the production of excessive acid and more discomfort.

      INDIGESTION

      Often, it is a LACK of stomach acid, not an excess that creates symptoms of indigestion. Naturopathic physicians have found that supplementary digestive acid and enzyme supplements can improve digestion and thus eliminate symptoms of indigestion. Lack of stomach acid can also result in food allergies, nausea after taking supplements and rectal itching. It can be indicated by weak fingernails, anemia, chronic parasites, fungal infections, and acne.

      WHAT DO ANTACIDS DO?

      Antacids reduce the acidity of the stomach by chemically absorbing or neutralizing some of the hydrochloric acid. Reducing stomach acid can temporarily relieve irritation of a weakened or exposed stomach lining. It can also reduce the acidity of stomach contents which become refluxed into the esophagus.

      COMMON PROBLEMS WITH COMMON ANTACIDS

      CALCIUM CARBONATE AND ACID REBOUND

      Calcium carbonate is especially fast-acting. Within a few hours, however, the body will overcompensate by producing an extra surge of acid.

      PROBLEMS WITH SODIUM BICARBONATE

      When used for long periods of time, sodium bicarbonate can cause increased acidity throughout the body. Highly acidic body chemistries (systemic alkalosis) are involved in health problems such as arthritis, kidney stones, nausea and mental confusion.

      ALUMINUM AND IMPAIRED MENTAL FUNCTION

      Although the FDA and manufacturers say that aluminum in antacids is not absorbed, studies since 1986 have shown that it is, especially in cases of kidney problems and in the presence of acidic foods such as citrus fruits or soda pop. There is increasing evidence that aluminum is involved in Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, Lou Gehrig’s disease and some other nervous system problems.

      OTHER SIDE EFFECTS OF ANTACIDS

      Use of antacids can cause bowel irregularities including constipation, nausea and diarrhea with occasional vomiting. They can lead to kidney stones, demineralization of bones, bone pain and muscle weakness with cramping. They can be counted on to produce malabsorption of minerals.

      The list of diseases that have been associated with low gastric acidity include, but are not limited to: Anemia, arthritis, asthma, autoimmune diseases, celiac disease, dermatitis, diabetes, eczema, gallbladder problems, hepatitis, lupus, osteoporosis, psoriasis and problems with over- and under-active thyroid glands.

    Is there a diet for those with Lupus?
    I want to know if there are any diets to followto relieve the symtoms of lupus. I heard that citrus aggreivates the joints, which sucks cause I love oranges and lemons. Althafa sprouts are not good either. Anyone have idea where to find a hit list of things I should limit or not eat?
    Are there certain things I should avoid?

    1. kimchungtran

      Dear Asker!

      Here is a good Diet and Lifestyle changes for patients with Systemic Lupus Erythematosus

      The following are some tips for maintaining a healthy diet:

      * Eat a diet low in saturated fats. Not all fats are unhealthy. Some studies suggest that omega-3 fatty acids, which are fat compounds found in fish oil, black currant or primrose seed oils, and flax seed, have anti-inflammatory and nerve protecting actions.

      Omega-3 fatty acids are essential acids. Medical research suggests they may have anti-inflammatory properties.

      * Choose whole grains and fresh vegetables and fruits. According to some studies, a diet rich in fruits and vegetables can lower homocysteine levels, which are elevated in patients with SLE and may be a risk factor for heart disease. Researchers are also investigating compounds called indoles, also known as mustard oil, which are found in broccoli, cabbage, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, kale, kohlrabi, collard and mustard greens, rutabaga, turnips, and bok choy. Indoles stimulate enzymes that convert estrogen to a more benign type. Eating vegetables certainly will not cure SLE, but they offer many general health benefits.

      * Get most proteins from vegetables, particularly soy.
      * Avoiding dairy and meat products may help protect the kidneys.
      * Take extra calcium and vitamin D to prevent osteoporosis (this is particularly useful for patients taking corticosteroids).
      * Supplements of vitamins B12, B6, and folate may be necessary, especially in people whose blood tests show high levels of homocysteine.
      * Exercise is safe, but patients should not expect it to improve symptoms, including joint aches and fatigue.
      * Restrict salt (particularly for patients with signs of high blood pressure and kidney disease).

      Of possible interest to patients with SLE is a 2002 report that patients with rheumatoid arthritis (also an inflammatory autoimmune condition) experienced improvement when they went on the Mediterranean diet, which stresses fish (which contains anti-inflammatory factors), olive oil, garlic, whole grains, nuts, and fresh fruits and vegetables. In any case, such a diet is heart-healthy, which is important for patients with SLE

      Prevention Against Infections

      Patients should minimize their exposure to crowds or people with contagious illnesses. Careful hygiene, including dental hygiene, is also important.

      Avoiding SLE Triggers

      Simple preventive measures include avoiding overexposure to ultraviolet rays and wearing protective clothing and sunblocks. There is some concern that allergy shots may cause flare ups in certain cases. Patients who may benefit from them should discuss risks and benefits with an SLE specialist. In general, patients with SLE should use only hypoallergenic cosmetics or hair products.

      Reducing Stress

      Chronic stress has profound physical effects and influences the progression of SLE. According to one study, patients with SLE differ from healthy individuals in their immune responses to stress, and psychological stress can induce flare-ups in patients with SLE. Patients should try to avoid undue emotional or physical stress. Getting adequate rest of at least 8 hours and possibly napping during the day may be helpful. Maintaining social relationships and healthy activities may also help prevent the depression and anxiety associated with the disease.

      Hope that may help you!
      Good luck!

    I have read that having pain in the neck & jaw after drinking alcohol is a symptom of systemic lupus,?
    I have had a recent positive ANA and a Positive RA, could this pain in the neck/Jaw area after drinking alcohol, like wine, be a true symptom of systemic Lupus. I will know the 2nd results that will confirm or R/O this medical condition. Thanks for ur answers Nancy

    1. Linda R

      That is definitely NOT a symptom of lupus! It has nothing whatsoever to do with lupus!

      A positive ANA means you MAY have an autoimmune disease. There are about 100 of them. You can have a positive ANA and no disease at all. The older you are, the more likely you are to have a positive ANA.

      RA is rheumatoid arthritis. It is sometimes positive in lupus. Sometimes people with RA also have lupus in overlap.

      All you can do is wait until you see the rheumatologist. The links below will help you learn about lupus. Whoever told you the jaw thing is way off base. Don’t listen to them.

    My doctor gave me Hydroxychloroquine as part of RA treatment. Is the medicine good? ?
    My doc gave me Hydroxychloroquine to control my joint pain and swelling. It may take 3 to 6 months to work.

    He told me about a possible rare complication where I may have eye damage. Has any taken the medication, have you had any problems with it?

    1. dadude9211

      Hydroxychloroquine is in a class of drugs called antimalarials. It is used to prevent and treat acute attacks of malaria. It is also used to treat discoid or systemic lupus erythematosus and rheumatoid arthritis in patients whose symptoms have not improved with other treatments.

      Anyhow, I am not aware of this rare eye complication it could cause, so I’d say it’s safe to assume it’s just that. Rare. The side effects you should really look for are having skin rashes, a change in hair color, nausea, or diarrhea. Most other symptoms are very uncommon; Hydroxychloroquine has a very good track record of not reacting bad with people.

    Is it possible to have lupus arthritis without systemic lupus disease?
    My ANA was positive with rheumatoid factor, with other painful symptoms. Is it possible that I just have lupus arthritis, without the actual lupus disease?

    1. Linda R

      Systemic lupus erythematosus affects you internally, that includes your joints. Some people also have organ involvement, others don’t.

      A positive ANA does not mean that you have lupus. It means that you have antinuclear antibodies. 10 million Americans have a positive ANA but only 1.5 million have lupus.

      In lupus, the pattern of the positive ANA matters more than the number. Lupus presents a speckled pattern. It should be listed on your lab report. Ask the doctor for a copy. You have a right to it.

      A positive ANA and a positive rheumatoid factor points to rheumatoid arthritis, not necessarily lupus. However, you can have lupus and rheumatoid arthritis in overlap.

      Regardless of the name for your condition, you have a chronic illness. One of the most important things you can do to manage it is to have good communication with your doctor. When you go to an appointment, write down you questions. You can expect that the first three will be answered, so put them in priority order. But do write all you questions down because the doctor will scan them and may notice something important.

      Symptoms of RP depend on the severity, frequency, and duration of the blood vessel spasm. Most patients with mild disease only notice skin discoloration upon cold exposure. They may also experience mild tingling and numbness of the involved digit(s) that will disappear once the color returns to normal. When the blood-vessel spasms become more sustained, the sensory nerves become irritated by the lack of oxygen and can cause pain in the involved digit(s). Rarely, poor oxygen supply to the tissue can cause the tips of the digits to ulcerate. Ulcerated digits can become infected. With continued lack of oxygen, gangrene of the digits can occur.

      Less common areas of the body that can be affected by RP include the nose, ears, and tongue. While these areas rarely develop ulcers, they can be associated with a sensation of numbness and pain.

      Patients with secondary RP can also have symptoms related to their underlying diseases. RP is the initial symptom of 70% of patients with scleroderma, a skin and joint disease. Other rheumatic diseases frequently associated with RP include systemic lupus erythematosus, rheumatoid arthritis, and Sjogren’s syndrome.
