What Causes Non-Vaginal Fungal/Yeast Infection?
Non-vaginal fungal/yeast infection can have various causes, ranging in severity from 'worrying' to 'critical'. Finding the true cause means ruling out or confirming each possibility – in other words, diagnosis.
Diagnosis is usually a complex process due to the sheer number of possible causes and related symptoms. In order to diagnose non-vaginal fungal/yeast infection, we could:
- Research the topic
- Find a doctor with the time
- Use a diagnostic computer system.
The process is the same, whichever method is used.
Step 1: List all Possible Causes
We begin by identifying the disease conditions which have "non-vaginal fungal/yeast infection" as a symptom. Here are six possibilities:
- Candida / Yeast
- Low Progesterone
- Immune System Imbalance
- Progesterone Excess
- Lupus (SLE)
Step 2: Build a Symptom Checklist
We then identify all possible symptoms and risk factors of each possible cause, and check the ones that apply:
difficulty conceiving children
drowsiness after eating
chest pain when breathing
reduced progesterone level
major fatigue for over 12 months
hot flashes during & after period
refined sugar consumption
... and more than 100 others
Step 3: Rule Out or Confirm each Possible Cause
A differential diagnosis of your symptoms and risk factors finds the likely cause of non-vaginal fungal/yeast infection:
|Immune System Imbalance
|Candida / Yeast
* This is a simple example to illustrate the process
