Is A Yeast Infection A Factor In People Who Are HIV Positive
Hi there, Eric Bakker, naturopath, with anotherquestion. One I get asked not that frequent, but I do get this question from time to timein my inbox. Is yeast infection a factor in people whoare HIV positive? Yeast infections are very common in peoplewho are HIV positive. And one of the main reasons for this will be that they have avery compromised immune system. And furthermore, many of them take immunosuppressant drugs,so conditions which will make a person need an immunosuppressive could be Hepatitis, HepatitisC, and HIV positive. There are various other diseases where immunosuppression will occursometimes as part of chemotherapy; other times
with auto immune diseases like rheumatoidarthritis. Immunosuppression can really increase your chances of a yeast infection. So patients who are HIV positive would dowell to work on establishing their level of Candida severity, have a look at my yeastinfection survey on yeastinfection , and have a look at a good eradication program. Candida Crusher is an excellent eradicationprogram and will be of enormous help to those who are HIV positive; not just to eradicatetheir yeast infection, but also to help significantly increase their immune health and to reducethe chances of many HIVrelated immune conditions.
So I hope that answers your question. Thankyou.
