Which items are measured in the Candida test?

Candida's Impact on Your Health

GetTested's Candida Test is designed for individuals who suspect they might be suffering from an overgrowth of Candida albicans, a common yeast. Candida overgrowth can trigger a variety of symptoms, including brain fog, fatigue, mood swings, gas, bloating, and digestive issues. Our simple at-home stool test provides a reliable analysis, helping you identify the root cause of your discomfort.

Understanding Candida in Your Body

Normally, Candida coexists harmlessly in our gut and on our skin. Yet, certain factors like diet, antibiotics, or weakened immunity can disrupt this balance. Consequently, Candida overgrowth may occur. Our test not only detects Candida albicans but also other yeast types like Candida species and Geotrichum candidum.

Candida Overgrowth: Causes and Symptoms

Candida overgrowth can arise from antibiotic use, dietary choices, stress, or immune system weaknesses. It produces toxins like ethanol and acetaldehyde, leading to diverse symptoms. Recognizing symptoms such as skin issues, digestive disturbances, and sugar cravings is vital.

Candida albicans: Common Yet Troublesome

Candida albicans, found naturally in small quantities, can cause infections under certain conditions like hormonal changes or weakened immunity. The most prevalent infection is vaginal candidiasis, affecting many women.

The Positive Side of Yeasts

Not all yeasts have negative impacts. Nutritional yeast, for example, is a beneficial source of vitamins, minerals, and complete proteins.

Geotrichum candidum: A Special Focus

Often found in dairy products and human skin, Geotrichum candidum can cause geotrichosis, especially in immunocompromised individuals. Symptoms include a chronic cough and respiratory issues.

Identifying Candida Symptoms

Symptoms of Candida infection range from brain fog and skin problems to gastrointestinal discomfort and mood swings. Recognizing these signs is crucial for timely diagnosis and treatment.

FAQ

How is the Candida test carried out?

Our Candida test is a home test kit. After ordering, we will send you a kit with everything you need to collect the stool sample. Then, simply return your sample to us in the pre-paid envelope.

Who should get a Candida test?

Those experiencing symptoms suggestive of a Candida overgrowth in the gut, such as persistent digestive issues (bloating, gas, diarrhea, or constipation), recurrent yeast infections, fatigue, or brain fog. It's also advisable for people who have been on long-term antibiotic treatments, as antibiotics can disrupt gut flora and potentially lead to overgrowth. Those with weakened immune systems or chronic conditions like diabetes, which can increase susceptibility to fungal overgrowth, may also benefit from this test to ensure proper gut health management.

How quickly will I receive my results?

Once we receive your sample, average response time is 10-15 business days to receive results.

Anything to consider before taking the test?

Avoid probiotics at least 72 hours before the test and antibiotics 2-4 weeks before the test.

What happens if I fail to take the sample?

If you read the instructions carefully before you take the test and it should go well. Should something go wrong, you are welcome to contact us and we will help you.
