    My daugher is 18 and has CFS. She has a history of candida, but we have that under control. Her doctor wants to treat her with oral DMSA to chelate metals. My daughter is very sensitive to supplements and meds. Will DMSA (being a sulpher compound) cause candida to come back?
    Also, I've read that EDTA suppositories are more effective than oral DMSA. Does anyone know if EDTA suppositories are safe for sensitive CFS people? Thanks!

    I've heard sulfur mentioned with candida before, but I never found an explanation. Does it feed candida or something?

    What are you chelating for? EDTA is not effective for Mercury, for example, where DMSA is. I've read that yeast should be under control before DMSA is used.

    Just be very cautious with DMSA. It is very hard for some of us to handle. Doctors often don't realize how sensitive many of us are. Has your daughter had a heavy metals test to see what her levels are?
