I just finished a 2-weeks round of diflucan. It didn't notice any improvement so i'm going to try itraconazole and the product by thorne labs next.
An extensive yeast culture by genova shows i have an overgrowth of multiple candida strains, albicans is not really the problem so perhaps that's why i didn't notice anything from diflucan. It's C. glabrata which has overgrown the most and unfortunately it's more pathogenic than albicans and resistant to diflucan.
@Thinktank you may find this interesting as I believe the SF722 product is technically the same as Undecylenic acid
"Another more recent study, published in 2012 in the Journal of Dental Research [91.10 (2012): 985-989], also studied undecylenic acid and its effects on Candida biofilm. In the study, two strains each of Candida albicans and Candida glabrata were used. The study, surprisingly, found that a minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) of undecylenic acid for both species of Candida was approximately 256 mcg / mL. The minimum fungicidal concentration (the amount necessary to kill the organism) of undecylenic acid for both species was 512 mcg / mL. This seeming discrepancy between this study and the Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy [52.7 (2008): 2442-2448] study could be a result of the amount of time undecylenic acid was allowed to interact with the Candida species. The Journal of Dental Research [91.10 (2012): 985-989] study analyzed the development of Candida species for up to 7 days; and, they reported that undecylenic acid’s activity against the Candida species wore off at about 8 hours after it was introduced to the yeast.
The Journal of Dental Research [91.10 (2012): 985-989] study went on to report that undecylenic acid was able to reduce the volume of Candida albicans biofilm and the thickness of the biofilm. However, Candida glabrata showed a slight increase in biofilm volume and thickness in the presence of undecylenic acid. Since undecylenic acid works to interrupt hyphae formation, and Candida glabrata does not grow hyphae, this may play some role in the difference of reaction to the fatty acid. The following chart was taken from this study and shows how both species of Candida reacted to the presence of undecylenic acid."
