My glucose did not change after being cured of candida. Before I came down with candida, my blood glucose levels were 106. During the year that I had it, it went up to 114, but I think that reading might have been skewed because I drank some coffee before the test. I have subsequently read that drinking coffee before a blood test may cause a false reading because coffee causes blood glucose levels to go up. I just got my first blood test back after getting over candida, and it was 106. I had came to a different conclusion than you about blood glucose, though. I had thought my blood glucose levels might actually go down after getting over candida because my body was no longer having to deal with the acidic waste of the organism as well as other parasites I've gotten rid of through a parasite cleanse (Humaworm.)
One change in my blood tests did occur, though. Interestingly, my cholesterol went up dramatically. Before being cured of candida, my cholesterol level was routinely 108-114, which is very low. After, it went up to 140, although most of it is HDL, or good cholesterol. I don't think the increase was caused by more saturated fats from following the candida diet, either, since I focus mainly on eating nuts and seeds as my protein source.
Another interesting thing that happened after being cured of candida is that I got over my decade long bout with depression, and I was able to go off of antidepresants. In the book titled, "The Seratonin Connection," the authors suggest that Depression can be caused by having too low cholesterol because the body needs cholesterol to move seratonin around in the brain. I had thought for the longest that I was able to get over my Depression after getting rid of candida because the antifungals had resulted in my not having as many toxins in my body from yeast and parasite overgrowth. Now I'm wondering whether getting rid of the yeast and parasites in some way caused my cholesterol to go up, which in turn was what helped me get over depression; or perhaps it was both.
