Candida DNA & Antibodies
This blood test uses standard immunological techniques to identify Candida IgA, IgG and IgM; Candida immune complexes and the extent of Candida DNA invasion into the bloodstream.
Candida is considered to be an opportunistic organism. While often harmlessly present in the gut in small numbers, Candida is quick to exploit any tissue and cause an immune reaction creating antibodies in response to the overgrowth. If candida proliferates from the gut into the bloodstream, it will encounter blood leukocytes releasing strands of Candida DNA.
This test is plays a significant role in accurately diagnosing the extent of candida infection.
