Candida Albicans

In 88 confirmed candida infections of the urinary tract between 1964 and 1980 in adults, 41% were males, and 59% were females. The largest age group was from 40 to 59 years old and 43% of these people had diabetes. 75% had frequent urinary problems and 16% had had a kidney transplant at one time. It is believed that most of these infections go undetected in women that have chronic vaginal yeast infections.

There are also candida infections of the respiratory system, cardiovascular system, eyes, bones and joints, liver, and allergies.

Candida infections of the intestine were first discovered in 1771 by Rosenstein who wrote about oral thrush, "It is very difficult when it descends to the fauces, stomach, and intestines." Underwood in 1784 stated that thrush, " is said to extend into the stomach and through the whole length of the intestines; producing also a redness about the anus".

What the oral thrush looks like!

Candida Vaginitis is often called a vaginal yeast infection and affects almost every woman at some point in their lives. Many women get multiple infections every year and some women get them every month around ovulation. American women spent over a half a billion dollars for treatment of vaginal thrush in 2002 alone. Most of this was spent on over the counter medications which generally are effective as a temporary solution.!
