I need help from a microbiologist. I want to be an MD/PhD at University of Arizona. I noticed a disease called candida overgrowth is affecting alot of people in my state. I see that people who are infected have redness in their eyes, swollen tonsils, fatigue, phlem, and flu like symptoms. I want to help these people as fast as possible....the only thing is that MDs do not diagnose this problem but so many are affected. I think if there were a way to find out what could be causing them to be sick all the time. I live in Mesa, Arizona and I see this everyday. It makes me feel bad that I cant do something. The only thing I have been thinking for a while is to do research as an MD/PhD to look further into this. But I really like Microbiology. I would love to be an PhD in Microbiology. If some could please help me with this situation.
