Does Candida feed off of ketones?


I’ve been on this diet almost two weeks.  I have a lot of questions but starting with this one.

I’ve had candida for years.  Doctors prescribing antibiotics for strep throat over the years.  Then when I started getting UTIs more antibiotics and stronger. I’ve read that people who suffer from candida should not do the keto diet because the candida will feed on the ketones instead of glucose.

What’s your opinion on this?

Hey Cindy!

While it is true that candida does eat off of sugar and ketones, a ketogenic diet can actually be helpful with the candida. If you do notice you have a flare up, maybe reduce the amount of fat you are taking in and replace that with a little protein.


Good luck!
