I have suffered with IBS-D symptoms for over 10 years now and had a Vega test done at a complementary health clinic a long time ago. It conclusively showed that I had a problem tolerating yeast and associated dietary substances such as alcohol, sugar etc. I did the whole exclusion diet and found myself feeling better for a while but found it impossible to keep up with in the long term. I have subsequently had a Vega test dive twice again over the years, in different clinics using different systems and they came up with much the sane results- massive intolerance to alcohol. I pretty sure that I suffer from Candida overload which causes,or certainly doesn't help a lot of my IBS problems. I feel really reluctant to talk about either Candida or Vega testing with my gp as I feel he will belittle me and dismiss it all. All he says is that I have classic IBS and that in his experience and understanding food plays next to no part in the symptoms- it's just the way I am. I find it all very hard as I am a 36 year old man who has been going round in circles for what should have been the best years of my life and feel that i am getting nowhere. Have tried so many supplements, probiotics etcetera but find I get discouraged and give up when I finish the containers. Also find that all if these things cost so much money without any sound medical endorsement . Don't know if it's worth trying confentional anti fungals such as Nystatin or would these just cause further problems to my delicate bowel and system. Am also on antidepressants so am worried about taking too many other medications. Any advice would be gratefully received.
