Sometimes a Systemic Yeast Infection can have light symptoms, and because of this they're dismissed as nothing to concerned about. The problem is, this allows the yeast to enter the bloodstream where a lot of different problems can eventuate and can even become a life-threatening situation.

The body naturally has a certain amount of yeast that lives in the body in small quantities and actually help the body, without doing any harm to it. There are also different types of microorganisms inside the body that are there to keep the yeast in check so an infection does not occur.

On-going stress attacks, poor choices of food, normal pregnancy changes, immune system deficiency diseases, antibiotic medications and other disease may abolish the tiny microorganisms and thereby allow the Systemic Yeast Infection Symptoms to rage.

The Systemic Yeast Infection Symptoms can differ from each individual, but here a few of the most usual ones:

Heavy sense of exhaustion and unusual run down feelings may arise.

1. The feelings of sensory disturbances, unusual muscle aches and pains, continual headaches, constant dizziness, and complaints of the sufferering of persistent tiredness are signs of a person with Systemic Yeast Infection.

2. Unusual or sudden sensitivity to chemicals or new food allergies.
Arising troubles which haven't occurred before with several chemicals or foods are common with those suffering from Systemic Yeast Infection Symptoms.

3. Problems with the gastrointestinal tract.

On many occasions, as touched on in the previous detail of the food allergies, flatulence, inflammatory bowel disease, rectal itching, constipation, and diarrhea are the most common of the Symptoms.

It is even possible for thrush, a Yeast Infection affecting the mouth and/or throat, to develop.

4. Onset of urinary and genital problems.

5. Development of hives and skin rashes.

You could even be having a case of hives, and not know where they came from.

6. Suddenly feeling irritable or mildly depressed.

Many times people complain of Systemic Yeast Infection Symptoms that include: mental confusion, feeling of being in a 'fog', difficulty focusing or concentrating, sleepness nights, memory loss, and decreased attention span.

7. Problems with the autoimmune system.

Some autoimmune disorders that normally become worse from a Systemic Yeast Infection are sarcoidosis, scleroderma, myasthenia gravis, arthritis, hemolytic anemia, thrombocytopenic purpura, or systemic lupus erythematosus.

Yeast flourish on a body that is fed with sugar, refined starch, and chemical additives.
These chemicals, starches and sugars are also readily present in bread, cookies, chips and other junk foods which are a large part of many peoples diets.

When someone is under immense stress, the microorganisms in the body that control the yeast start to die off.

Anytime you think you may have a Systemic Yeast Infection Symptoms, you need to check with your doctor about what tests need to be run to determine what your body's level of Yeast organism is.
All in all, remember that it's vital to know if you are dealing with a Systemic Yeast Infection Symptoms so you can get the proper treatment.

    What are the symptoms and avalible treatments for Lupus?

    What is lupus and how does one get lupus?
    My annoying ex-boyfriend and I got into a huge argument over what lupus really is. My dad, a physician for very sick adults, told me that lupus could be anything because it disguises itself as other diseases. My ex told me, his source being a doctor, that lupus was a skin disease and that it starts out as a skin disease. Any medical information?

      The cause of lupus is unknown. It falls under the category of autoimmune diseases, which are noninfectious diseases where the body is believed to be, for some reason, attacking itself. There is one type of lupus which is called “discoid lupus erythematosos” which affects only the skin and is usually not very serious. The other lupus can attack MANY different areas of the body and its seriousness can go from mild to extremely severe. There is not one specific test for lupus and it can be hard to diagnose since its presentation may differ greatly from person to person and it may appear differently at different times even in the same person. Some of the more common presentations may include joint pain and swelling, chronic or intermittent low grade temperature, severe fatigue, red skin rashes (the “classic” lupus skin lesion is a red rash appearing over the nose/upper cheeks in the form of a butterfly–but of course not everyone gets that)–lupus can also affect the kidneys, the cardiovascular system, can cause blood disorders and may cause many other symptoms as well. In some cases lupus patients may experience head hair loss. If lupus is suspected, the best type of doctor to see would be a rheumatologist who would be familiar with the group of blood tests which may indicate that a person MAY have lupus–since there is no one blood test. If a person is diagnosed as having lupus, treatment would be directed at stopping the abnormal body response that is causing the patient’s symptoms–there are a number of very different types of medications which can be used to try to achieve this.I have given a very general description of a very complicated disorder and would suggest you read up on it –perhaps WEBMD would be a place to start.

    People with lupus: do you find it difficult to sleep?
    I’m only 18 and I was diagnosed with lupus about 4 years ago. From then until now I haven’t really had a “flare”, but for the past few days I’ve been finding it really difficult to fall asleep at nighttime. I didn’t sleep at any time last night – I watched the sun as it rose. I usually find it difficult to fall asleep, but I always fall asleep in the end, and so last night was the first night I ever didn’t fall asleep.

      3 different people close to me have lupus. One being my aunt, who has always been a really negative/stressed/sad person anyways, but since being diagnosed with lupus 15 years ago she’s totally stressed even more, and really let herself go. I hate to say it but lupus has turned her into a 70 year old woman type and she’s only 40. She is in very bad shape. I truly believe her attitude, depression and negativity make her have bad flares and now her whole life is a mess.

      My friend Adrienne has lupus, but she’s had it for 10 years and you really wouldn’t know shes sick 99.9% of the time. I’ve known her for 7 years and only seen her go thru a flare up of it one time. It was when we were working at this store during Christmas time, and she really over did herself. She was working like 70 hours and it made her have a flare. She swelled up from head to toe and had to go in the hospital for Christmas week 🙁 After that, she told them 40 hours a week max, stress really did her in so she needed to take it easy.

      3rd person I know has had lupus for 15-20 years, most of her life. She has spent most of her life fairly healthy with the exception of asthmatic symptoms from the lupus, but over the past year, she lost her job and became very stressed. The sleep issues began, she has to take Lunesta to help her sleep. And then the other symptoms kicked in, and she has some bone issues, and has to take prednisone every day which is bad for your body too.

      The key to this is to avoid extreme stress! Stress seems to cause flare ups in everyone I know with Lupus. The more stressed the person has been, the worse their symptoms. I would ask your doc if theres a sleep med safe for you to take and not make you dependent. For me, NyQuil works wonders 🙂 but you should ask to see if its safe for you. Lupus is nothing to play around with, as you may or may not know. It can be very serious. I don’t want to scare you but it *can* be a big deal. It doesn’t have to be. Try to enjoy life and take it easy 🙂 Good luck.

    How does predisone reduce swelling and redness and how does it change theway the immune system works?
    i already understand that it is a glucocorticoid, steroid, what ever you want to call it but really what do steroids do for inflammation?

    1. GJB

      Predisone and cortisone (corticosteroids) suppress your immune system. You have fifteen different kinds of specialized cells that are a part of your immune system. White blood cells, macrophages, and T-cells, which are produced by the thymus, basophils and mast cells are some you may have heard of. Some types live in your blood, roaming throughout your body and attacking things like viruses and bacteria. Some even attempt to digest metals that have gotten into your blood from cookware and so forth. (Unfortunately the metal kills the cell, but the metal is changed enough the body can deal with it and eliminate it.) Some live in the lymphatic system as well as the blood. Some are distributed throughout your body. Some live in your skin and epithelial mucosum. (Allergies to pollens happen because the immune cells attack what is actually a benign substance, setting off a chain of chemical events so you develop uncomfortable symptoms, including inflamed sinus tissues and body aches.)

      People are given prednisone in the cases of auto-immune illness like lupus and rheumatoid arthritis. As I understand it, when you have certain conditions, for example an overgrowth of yeasts in your system, your immune system can become confused, mistaking your own body’s cells for invaders, and damage the body’s own cells. The damaged cells spill their contents, setting off alarms in the body which bring even more immune cells to the area, causing more damage and more inflammation. So prednisone and similar patent drugs are given in order to suppress the body’s defenses. Prednisone is also prescribed in cases of bursitis, an inflammation of the joint’s cushioning usually caused by damage from overuse.

      I’ve never been a fan of prednisone, because it can cause health problems of its own at high doses. High doses can also cause mental disorders. But if you have had an organ transplant, that’s what you take to prevent the body’s attacking the foreign donor tissue. (I ‘d already had reservations about using prednisone previous to this: but a close friend of mine had a kidney transplant, and though the kidney was working fine, eventually died of the effects of the prednisone she was taking. Other people I know who’ve had a kidney transplant seem to do fairly well on it.)

      Prednisone is an artificial version of cortisone. They work similarly, but cortisone, a natural steroid, is prohibitively expensive to take for long term.

      There are herbal substances that also reduce inflammation. They’re safer for things like lupus and rheumatoid arthritis, but some of them thin your blood so you can’t take them with blood-thinning medication like Coumadine, for example.

    Can anybody explain what is lupus? In an understanding format?
    A very close friend of mine passed away Saturday of Lupus. Just want to get a good understanding of what the disease is all about?
