Dear Gonzo,

Beer is a fermented drink made with yeast.

Yeast eats sugar.

I would assume that your wife is being put on some sort of anti-yeast, candida diet, but most require the person avoid all fruit as well because fructose (fruit sugar) is converted to glucose (simplified table sugar).

Whether or not your wife has yeast is something relatively easily tested for. If no tests have been done, be cautious about restrictive diets. Since the bowel regenerates every week, improvement should be rapid.

I hope this is helpful.
