IgG antibodies are used to determine a current or past infection.
Candida is a yeast found in the body. It is typically found in small amounts that are kept under control by the immune system, but can spread to dangerous levels when a person takes antibiotics, or when their immune system is compromised. Candida infections are most often found in the mouth (Thrush), genitals (yeast infection), or GI tract. Infections can spread through sexual contact. Symptoms include itching, irritation, and/or white discharge in the genital area, and a yeast-like odor. This test looks specifically for IgG antibodies to determine current or past infection.
No special preparation is required.
