The mouth is the first responder to invaders to the body. Candida albicans which is also oral thrush is always present in our mouths. Thanks to the mouth this condition is kept at bay. But if the body is compromised from an illness or low immune response candida albican can become a full blown infection. Treatment for this infection is simple and efficient. There are several things you can do to prevent reinfection. Controlling blood sugar is the main thing. This fungus loves sugar.
- Oral thrush is a yeast infection caused by Candida Albicans, which usually lives harmlessly in the mouth but can easily invade the body and compromise trigger immune responses.
- People with weakened immune systems are particularly susceptible to the infection because the immune system is what keeps the candida in check.
- New research says that the mouth can cause the immune systems defense to kick in once the candida invades the body.
“New research has identified how the mouth acts as a trigger for the immune system’s defenses to kick in once the fungus Candida albicans – which causes oral thrush – has invaded the body.”
