Candida overgrowth can lead to many different kinds of food allergies or intolerances, such as allergies to gluten, dairy, yeast, soy, nightshadeplants (potatoes, tomatoes etc), nuts (peanuts, walnuts, pistace, cashew, pecan) and caffeincontaining products. Also additives and preservatives, supplements and drugs can create an allergic or intolerance reaction and therefore overgrowth of Candida. Its likely that there is both antibody mediated allergies (allergies) and non-antibodymediated reactions (intolerance). In general on this website, when we are referring to problematic substances in general, we will use the term "allergens".
Chronic intestinal stress from Candida-toxins, putrefaction and related indigestion can inflame your intestinal wall and make it superreactive to irritation from antagonistic foods. In addition, the fungal form of Candida has the ability to actually penetrate the intestinal walls, damage them and cause a leakage of food substances and fecal waste into the bloodstream. This state is called the Leaky Gut Syndrome (or Intestinal Permeability), which is frequently caused by the Candida yeast and is a very specific symptom of systemic Candidainfection. For a more detailed description of allergies associated with Candidainfection checkout the "Dietary Considerations" section under the Candida Diet tab.
