Feb. 26, 2020 – Further examinations found high levels of Candida glabrata, yeast naturally produced by the body, were accumulating in her bladder when she ingested sugar. The yeast is similar to Saccharomyces cerevisiae, a fungus known as brewer’s yeast because it’s used by beer-makers to convert carbohydrates in grains into alcohol. Tests showed this conversion process was taking place inside the patient’s bladder. This was taxing on her liver which was forced to try and eliminate it from her body every time she ate certain foods. To get rid of the yeast infection, she was prescribed oral antifungals. The case report was revealed by medics from the University of Pittsburgh’s Presbyterian Hospital in Pennsylvania.
