Candida is a form of fungus present in the human body. It is usually responsible for causing the most common kind of infection, which is termed as candidiasis. Candida is a kind of yeast which exists in a number of species. Among these many species of Candida, Candida albicans is the one which gives rise to Candida infections. But in the recent times, the second closest contributor to candidiasis is Candida glabrata.
With the ever increasing population of immune compromised individuals, trends have shown Candida glabrata to be a highly opportunistic pathogen of the urogenital tract, and of the bloodstream. It is most common in completely weakened immune systems like the patients of HIV or cancer or old people.† Infections caused by candida glabrata are dangerous because this specie has a resistance towards azole antimycotic therapy, which is very effective in treating infections caused by other Candida species.
Candida glabrata causes superficial (oral, esophageal, vaginal, or urinary) as well as systemic candidal infections. Even though Candida glabrata is the one of rare causative agents, its capacity to have a resistance to azole makes it a high mortality rate illness. Very little is known about the virulence of Candida glabrata and virtually nothing is known about the hostís defenses directed against the organism.
As Candida glabrata is an organism similar to candida albicans, there are likely to be normal host mechanisms that effectively control Candida glabrata, holding it in check and suppressing the expression of its pathogenic properties, thereby preventing infection. These therefore, include the basic habits of healthy food intake and avoiding the sugar, carbohydrates and yeast. It is also advisable to use natural kind of treatment that assures a cure to the increased number of candida as well as gives your weak immune a healthy makeover.
Candida glabrata was previously largely ignored and received little consideration; therefore, not surprisingly, our knowledge of it is not only deficient but also considerably absent. A major concern is that the management of candida glabrata infections as the antifungal agents, that have proven to be successful against candida albicans, have been woefully inadequate against Candida glabrata.
The holistic all-natural approach is focused on tackling the fundamental causes as well as the external manifestations of Candida overgrowth and all kind of candidiasis caused by different species.
