Candida and Autism  

Candida albicans is a yeast-like fungus that naturally occurs in the body. However, individuals who have dysfunction in their immune system may experience an overgrowth of this naturally occurring fungus. This problem may be particularly problematic among the autistic population.  

There are a few factors that may contribute to the number of Candida problems in the autistic population. The “leaky gut' theory postulates that individuals with autism have digestive problems that make it impossible for them to process certain proteins. Casein and gluten are of great concern.  

Some postulate that environmental issues may come into play with yeast problems in autistic individuals. Chemicals may disrupt the immune system and many believe that vaccines can wreak havoc on this system as well. Other possible contributors include other environmental factors and general immune dysfunction.  

The theory suggests that removing allergens in the gut will help reduce the symptoms of autistic disorder. Removing the allergens promotes a healthy immune system that in turn, keeps Candida at bay.   

Autistic individuals can benefit in two ways; they experience relief from yeast infections by strengthening their immune systems and they experience relief from the symptoms of autism as well. Many people in this population are on casein and gluten-free diets. However, it is nearly impossible to remove these elements from a diet completely.  

It is important to introduce anti-fungal supplements in order to reduce the yeast build-up in the system. However, this alone is not enough. It helps to limit the amount of sugar in the person's diet as well. Yeast grows very quickly in when sugar is present.  

Anti-fungal supplements commonly used in the treatment of Candida in autistic individuals include Diflucan and Nizoral. These anti-fungal medications require monitoring because they can affect liver function. It is crucial that the patient stays on the medication longer than one month because the yeast can return in a more resistant type.

Reported benefits of removing yeast from the digestive system of autistic children include:  

  • Better eye contact
  • Fewer self-stimulatory behaviors
  • Improved attention
  • Decreased hyperactivity
  • Decreased aggression

Some have reported significant improvement using specialized diets and anti-fungal supplements can offer natural alternatives to Difulcan and Nizoral. Natural remedies provide a viable option to consider and if they are not satisfactory, then medications can be introduced into the treatment of Candida in autistic individuals.
