Digestive Disorders

Digestive problem

10/02/2007

Question:

About 2 months ago I was diagnosed with candidiais. After about 2 weeks of taking ketonocazole I changed my diet, and also started taking probiotics. Since then my stool is always very loose. I have also noticed mucous in my stool a few times. Can a diet cause this? Is the mucous the candida dying?

Answer:

Stool consistency may change when taking antibiotics and also more mucous production with antibiotics. It should gradually improve over the next month or so.
