My dad has a hard distended gut. It is firm all the way around below the skin and muscles (what there is of them). He is a heavy drinker. Can this be from Candida? Any info appreciated - it is very weird.
My dad had a gut like this his whole life. He is deceased now. He lived to be 87. He had diabetes, I thought maybe that was why. I agree that it is weird. No flab whatsoever, just a big gut that was very hard!!
Does he feel sick? Is he fatigued or get brain fog? If he has these symptoms, he may have candida. Or maybe food allergies . Does he have irritable bowel? I have a major candida issue and used to have a disetended gut, but it was not hard like my dad's. Since I began the candida diet, the gut went away. Could you talk him into giving up the drinking to see if it would help?
