Well, yes, I was "tentatively" dx with candida thru Great Smokies test (I only got the test AFTER months of treatment, so population was elevated, but not sky high at that point, but they also found various pathogens (bacterium) that were not supposed to be there too, so it could be I have both. However, I do respond to anti-candida measures. I see it in my stool after die off. Would this new thing you are looking at also produce white stuff in stools? Or, coudl this be a co-infection? It really does sound like you are onto something of major importance. I really admire your dedication to solving the riddle.
