User :   Hi. we spoke already about my trouble about candida , and you asked me to send my test report , I have been tested with candida antibody. It is written above 10 is positive , and i am 10.5 , does 10.5 mean a small over growth? , This test is conducted 2 months before and right at the very moment i was given flucanazole , and now since i have some digesion problem (i.e i keep berping whatever i eat , and lot of gas trouble ). So the same doctor gave me ketocanazole(10 days) and combif AR (6 months). Do you think that i am in an advanced stage of candida ?
Doctor :   I have gone through your test results.
Doctor :   10.5 shows that you have a very marginal level of infection , not to worry at all.
User :   should i have to take 2 ketocanazole daily , after being treated with flucanazole
Doctor :   It would be better to take the medication and also the probiotic Combif AR.
User :   ok doctor

User :   when the gas discharges in the stomach , i can feel the pain , if i get a burp and fart , then there is no pain
Doctor :   Ok.
Doctor :   Can you find any relief if you turn side ways ?
User :   the pain is not increasing or decreasing , its constant , but it come after eating and 3 to 4 hiurs after eating (may be during digestion i guess)
