An accurate laboratory test that examines antibodies to Candida Albicans with the following free consultation of the results. 20 minutes online or phone review with a food intolerance specialist, Dagmar Rakovická Čanigová.
In this type of testing, the blood sample is analyzed by precise laboratory Elisa technology. It is an accurate laboratory determination of the level of IgA, IgG antibodies from blood serum by a professional laboratory technician.
WHAT IS CANDIDA?
Candida albicans is a yeast-like fungus that is normally present in the body in small, harmless amounts. Under certain conditions, the overgrowth of this fungus can occur anywhere in the body, but most often in the digestive tract, in the excretory system and/or in the vagina. Overgrowth of Candida albicans is called candidiasis. The fungus grows best in warm, dark conditions and in the presence of sugar. Under these circumstances, Candida albicans transforms from small dormant spores into a branching structure called mycelium with the ability to spread and irritate tissues.
WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS OF CANDIDASIS?
The most frequently observed symptoms are:
Severe bloating and flatulence
Depression and mood swings
Muscle or joint pain
Headaches and migraines
Oral or vaginal herpes; bladder infammation
Pain in the mouth and a white coating on the tongue
Cracking of the skin in the corners of the mouth
Fungal nail infections and athlete's foot
Red inflamed rashes on the skin, in areas that sweat
General feeling of discomfort
Sensitivity to foods that contain yeasts and molds
Sensitivity to wet weather
CANDIDA OVERGROWTH TESTING
Due to the wide range of symptoms, it is not always obvious that candida albicans overgrowth is the problem, so the only way to know is to get tested.
Blood tests are available that measure IgG and IgA antibodies. The advantage of these tests is that a blood sample is taken with only one fingertip capillary, and the results indicate whether the infection occurred in the past, is chronic or current. IgG antibodies indicate current or past candidiasis infection. IgA antibodies can also indicate mucosal infections.
