"Our Candida Antibodies and Antigen panel analyzes Candida antigen and IgG, IgA, and IgM antibodies specific to Candida to help identify an overgrowth of the fungus, suspected to be the underlying cause of a number of symptoms ranging from
-High levels of specific IgG antibodies against Candida may be indicative of past or ongoing infections.
-High levels of specific IgA antibodies against Candida are thought to be associated with mucosal epithelial, tracheobronchial, and genito-urinary candida infections.
-IgM antibodies are generally regarded as the predominant immunoglobulins involved in early infections.
-The detection of Candida antigen in serum may suggest that mucosal and immunological barriers have been overwhelmed.
We offer a full Candida panel or single antibody testing of IgG and IgA as an add-on to our food panels."
