Do you think IC could be caused by a systemic yeast infection/Candida? Perhaps IC is a symptom of Candida?

Interstitial cystitis is not caused by candida, although it can be made worse by candida. IC is thought to be a congenital absence of one of the layers of the bladder which allows urea to diffuse into the bladder wall.
