FLUIDS iQ’s test for Candida albicans forms a key part of our Intestinal iQ™ series of analytical wellness tests, measuring levels of antibodies to one of the most common causes of fungal infections in humans.
Candida albicans is a commensal fungus that is present on the surface of normal mucosa, with small amounts in the gut, mouth, skin and other body areas. The growth of Candida albicans is normally limited by the human immune system and by competition by other microorganisms that inhabit the same regions of the human body. Sometimes, however, an overgrowth of Candida albicans can occur, leading to rising levels of antibodies.
FLUIDS iQ’s Candida albicans test is offered as an IgG add on to any of our Intestinal iQ™ tests that include food sensitivities and also as a Candida Suite, which measures the levels of IgM, IgG and IgA antibodies
