A blood test to check for elevated levels of Candida Antibodies in order to diagnose Candida overgrowth.
Candida is a yeast that is found naturally as part of the normal healthy gut micro flora and also occurs in the mouth and vagina. The Candida Antibody test is used to detect systemic candidiasis by looking for the 3 antibodies that form your immunity to Candida; they are IgG, IgA and IgM. The test recognises when levels of these antibodies are particularly high, signalling an overgrowth of Candida.
This test is for anyone wishing to establish whether they have a Candida infection.
Signs that you may have a Candida infection include extreme tiredness, bloating, diarrhoea or constipation, muscle aches and mood swings.
We will send you your Candida Antibodies blood test sample collection kit together with the details of a convenient clinic where you can go and have your sample taken.
