How many strains or types of yeast are there that can effect the human body?

by Christine
(Eureka, CA)

I recently had a comprehensive stool test and the results came back showing positive for 4 different types of candida. My Naturopath said that is unusual to see all 4 show up on a test like that, and she had never seen it. I had Covid last year in November, was sick for 3 days in bed, on the third day I had a 20 minute attack of extremely painful cramps and nausea but did not erupt in either direction. By December the pre-existing symptoms of gas, bloating and sleep disturbance was more chronic and severe and I could no longer pretend that they were going to go away as they had in the past. I am currently treating SIBO and LIBO through diet and herbal antimicrobials soon to be followed by probiotics and will soon be on a years worth of Nystatin. I will continue the restricted diet the whole way through.

There are roughly 150 fungal species that can be pathogenic to humans. However, approximately 65% of Candida species are unable to grow at a temperature of 37°C, 98.6°F, which precludes these species from being successful pathogens or indeed commensals of humans.

We have put together a webpage here on the most common candida species that can infect the human body. That page also includes the most common types of fungus as well. Go ahead and take a look at that yeast species page and any other questions let us know.
