The condition of Candidiasis (chronic Candida albicans infection) is a fungal infection or overgrowth of fungus in the intestines. Candida is normally found in the gut, yet if its growth is out of control it can lead to a wide variety of symptoms including the intensification of auto-immune symptoms.
An overgrowth of Candida results primarily from the abuse or prolonged use of antibiotics including tetracycline for acne, birth control pills, and a high-sugar, low-fat, high-carbohydrate diet. People who were not breastfed also have an increased risk of Candida overgrowth.
