<p>OK I'm 38 and just got my first yeast infection last month.  That's not too bad, eh?  But now it just wouldn't go away.  My doctor already gave me the oral anti-fungal pills twice.  Each time it got better then come back again.  I'm all confused why.  It's like if I never got it before, and my diet and habits didn't change at all, why would I keep getting it now? </p>
<p> </p>
<p>The only thing changed lately is my metabolism.  I've been on anti-thyroid medication for a while and I think it's brought my metabolism into the borderline/low range, for the first time in my life.  I usually have high metabolism all the time and fight off infections quickly.  Is it possible that it's caused by slow metabolism?  Am I doomed to suffer this until my metabolism pick up again?  I don't get to see my specialist for another two weeks to decide new dose.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Did anybody find any association with yeast and slow metabolism?</p>

<p>Never mind the above.  I'm starting to think it's not yeast at all.  I checked through lots of information about candida and it seems my regular diet is always very anti-yeast.  If the diet thing really works I should have too little yeast instead of too much.</p>
