  • Thanx for accepting me don.The reason I asked about Candida is because my diet is not the best and feeds it. I had allergy testing and tested positive by skin prick but my docs act like Candida in the lungs just didn't happen. I've had a rough two years. Congrats on your transplant and prayers to you ,your family and your donor.
