I was talking with one of my girlfriends last week about bladder infections, and she was telling me about her Mom and her ongoing issues with her bladder. The conversation was very interesting to me as I've been having some bladder problems of my own, and it's always helpful to hear what other people have gone through and what works, etc. My girlfriend mentioned that her Mom once had a urine sample test positive for yeast. This really caught my ear when she said that, as I've never heard of that before. I guess when her Mom got the results the doctor told her it was very rare to have yeast show up in your urine--who knew? My friend was sort of chuckling because she said her Mom has decided all on her own that the yeast must have come from her diet and so she no longer will eat a whole bagel at one time or a lot of bread, just maybe 1/2 a bagel or something.
This all got me to thinking--is yeast in the urine really uncommon? is it something we should bring up as a possibility with our doctors if we think we have a bladder infection? What would yeast in the bladder indicate? and is my friend's Mom onto something by avoiding lots of carby breads, or is that a totally separate thing?
