Hi,

This was diagonised by a chiropractor. I dont have the details. That is the reason, I wanted to go to a doctor and get the tests done.

I have had asthmatic attacks in the past and I have a lot of symptoms of candida overgrowth i.e. fatigue, headaches, asthma.

So, it would be good if you could recommend a doctor I could go to, to treat this specific condition.

Thanks,
XXXXXXX

Hi, welcome back.
I would like to suggest that don't go such diagnosis. Please consult a respiratory and chest disease specialist for evaluation and clinical examination. Then only go for further investigation. You may need not to do any test. Candida infection has different presentation at all.
Apollo hospital is good place where you will get all facilities. Please consult a specialist at first.

Hope I have answered your query.

Regards.
