One common question that comes our way is, “Can a yeast infection cause bloating?” The answer is a resounding yes. Bloating is indeed a primary digestive issue that many individuals face when dealing with a yeast infection. Symptoms such as bloating, gas, and burping are often evident.
Ever felt the need to adjust your waistband after a meal because of bloating? Or do you find yourself craving a dessert post-dinner, perhaps something sweet like ice cream, pudding, or a biscuit with your coffee or tea? Such dietary habits could be the very reasons behind the bloating. Consuming sugary foods right after a meal or even as snacks between meals can exacerbate yeast growth. This, in turn, leads to what we describe in our book Candida Crusher as fermentative dysbiosis. Simply put, the fermentation in the gut results in the production of gas, leading to bloating. This excess gas is then released from the body, often as flatulence. So if you find yourself passing a significant amount of wind, it might be an indicator of a yeast infection. Moreover, there are other signs and symptoms associated with yeast infections. We recommend browsing through our other articles and resources to recognize any additional indicators of a yeast infection.
