Aw crap, no more sugar

I got the results of the Test that dare not speak its name, and it was a mixed bag.

I have an overabundance of digestive enzymes, which is really good and apparently rare in folks with digestive issues, the nutritionist says.

Unfortunately, I also have none of the good bacteria Lactobacillus and a smattering of the fungus Candida. Apparently the combination is not so cool.

I am going to start taking probiotics to replace the Lactobacillus, and three days later a supplement to remove the Candida.

The worst thing is that Candida apparently likes sugar, meaning I need to cut my sugar. The nutritionist did not actually say "no sugar." She just said I should try to avoid anything that you add sugar to. But she also said anything Mom makes is OK.

Now, I just need to persuade Mom to put sugar in my tea every morning.

No sugar is not real easy, but when you do cut it down a lot, it can make you feel so much better that you won't want to go back. That's my case anyway.
