Product Description

Candida Antigen

Candida is a yeast like organism that lives naturally in small amounts in your mouth, gastrointestinal tract and skin.

A Candida Antigen test is the best examination available for the assessment of systemic Candidiasis.

It is more specific than the Candida antibody test as almost everyone has some level of antibodies. If the antigen is positive, it means that there is a current infection that needs to be treated.

Most candidial infections are treatable and result in minimal complications such as redness, itching and discomfort.

Candida species are frequently part of the human body’s normal oral and intestinal flora. Treatment with antibiotics can lead to eliminating the yeast’s natural competitors for resources, and increase the severity of the condition.
