What is a Candida test?

Why is a Candida test important?

Candida is a fungus that lives in the gastrointestinal system, skin and pelvic region in most people. While a small amount of Candida exists in everyone, stress, antibiotic use, and a weakened immune system can cause a Candida overgrowth. Symptoms related to Candida overgrowth are generally caused by an overstimulation of the immune system.

What does an abnormal Candida test result mean?

An elevated IgG antibody level is suggestive of a past or current Candida infection.

Candida IgG Test - More Information

The candida test measures the candida IgG antibody blood level.

Candida immunoglobulin G (IgG) is a type of antibody that looks for prior exposure to Candida albicans. IgG antibodies are special proteins that are produced by the immune system to protect the body against future candida infections. The presence of IgG antibodies typically suggests a prior candida infection but may also imply an active infection in someone with symptoms. For some people, getting a wider range of antibody types through the candida antibody panel is a more thorough way of evaluating prior or current candida exposure.

Getting a candida test near you at a Quest Diagnostics lab is straightforward once you order your lab test online and select a lab. After getting your blood drawn, your blood will be analyzed using standard laboratory equipment. On your candida test results, your candida IgG antibody level will appear in the results column and the reference range provided by the lab will help you interpret whether candida IgG antibody was considered detected or not in your blood. Please refer to the candida test sample report provided above for an example of what your candida results will look like.
