(I'm not familiar with any of these tests, this is just what I found on the internet)
I myself only did the spit test, the tongue check and a simple 1-day stool test at the lab.
How to test for candida :
- Saliva Test / Spit Test
- The IgA, IgG, and IgM test
- Stool culture / stool test
The first is the Comprehensive Digestive Stool Analysis (CDSA) that evaluates the stool for malabsorption, yeast, parasites, pH imbalance, and bacterial overgrowth. The second is a Comprehensive Parasitology Test (CP x2) with a purge, which is a more detailed test for parasites.
- The Candisphere Test
The Candisphere is a blood test that shows the toxic waste that the Candida is releasing into the blood. The toxic wastes detected can only be released by large amounts of harmful Candida and not by small amounts of normal Candida. This test helps us to determine what stage of Candida overgrowth the person is in.
This test was determined to be 90% accurate for Candida by the FDA. When combined with the CDSA test it gives us the most accurate view of a patient's level of Candida and the cause of it.
- Candida Immune Complexes test is the most reliable.
- maybe a mouth swab if you have oral thrush
Candida Antibody blood test to check for any candida yeast infection. Make sure the test measures IgG, IgA and IgM antibodies to candida as well.
let your blood be tested for antigens against Candida Albicans
take an IgG-allergy test where they also check the level of antigens you have in your body against Candida.
