  • risks with acidophilus?

    I am thinking of trying acidophilus for reoccurring yeast infections.
    I was wondering if there are any risks in taking them? I have had kidney stones several times in the past and I am afraid of getting too much calcium.

    Is Azo Yeast the same thing? I am taking that already and I ended up getting one anyway. I took a round of antibiotics and ended up with a yeasty beasty!

    Also what is the recommended dose for yeast prevention?

    Thank you for your help in advance,
    Melissa

    I take azo yeast once a day...I had a stone last July,
    But at the time I was not taking azo.. So I cant say thats what contributed to causing the stone...

      Once you get the infection, the over-the-counter stuff might not work too well. I think it would be a good idea to call your doctor. Taking the acidophilus might help prevent another one once you get rid of the active infection you have now.

        I also found online that acidophilus is good to prevent UTI's

          Acidophilus doesn't really have calcium...it is probiotic...friendly bacteria which is good for preventing yeast and UTI's since basically if there is a healthy amount of good bacteria bad bacteria have less to survive on.
          Dose is difficult to determine. You probably need more to get a healthy amount started...more when taking an antibiotic and less once you get things under control.

          It depends on how much yeast is in your body as to how much you need. I needed a lot after years of antibiotic treatment but now am going down on the amount.
          I suggest somewhere in the area of 5-10 billion cells for a while. Please read the info at the link it can help a lot.

            I bought some acidophilius today at rite-aid. It has 1.5 billion per capsule. It recommends taking one to two caps. a day. I am thinking of taking 3 a day. That was the highest number of bacteria available at rite-aid. I am going to take that until I can get to a health food store out of town this weekend.
            I am excitied about getting started on this.

            Thank you ladies for your post and helpful info.
