Trichosporonosis can infect the GI system in patients who have weakened immune system.

rheumatoid arthritis can affect the immune system.

that is good your diet change has helped.

what is better for your bowel is daily probiotic therapy.

colostrum is from dairy and could help or not.

are you having diarrhea now after you changed your diet to avoid gluten and diary.

milk has a lot of lactose and often can cause diarrhea if you have lactose intolerance.

I haven't been diagnosed with Trichosporonosis. The fungus was found in my stool from a culture but nobody has addressed it yet. I take probiotics daily and I do not have diarrhea and did not have it. I have not started the colostrum yet. I am not lactose intolerant. The colostrum is to heal my gut. I am working to get my system working on its own they process of elimination. The only thing is the fungus that was found in my stool culture. Should I be concerned about this? Bring it up to my doctor? Is the fungus found life threatening? I am worried. Mahalo
Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 2 years ago

you can bring it up to your doctor

but most likely the fungus is not causing your symptom.

that is good you don't have diarrhea.

I bet your doctor will not be worried.

If this fungus showed up in your patients stool culture what would you do? I am doing better with my RA symptoms. Almost no symptoms and have never been on any meds for it.Thank you
Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 2 years ago

if the patient doesn't have diarrhea or constipation symptoms, I would watch it.

just because the fungus is there, doesn't mean it needs treatment.

that is good you are doing better with your RA

I would continue to do what you are doing.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
