Candida is a yeast naturally found in the body that can proliferate to abnormally high levels when a person is taking antibiotics or has an infection.

This test measures Candida albicans IgA, IgG, and IgM antibody blood levels to screen for a candida infection and assess the immune system’s response. Candida is a common yeast that is normally found in small amounts in the gut, mouth, and vagina. This testing for candida in the blood helps detect particularly high levels of these antibodies, signaling an overgrowth of candida.

What is a Candida Antibody Blood Test?

The Candida Blood Test works by collecting a blood sample and measuring levels of three antibodies in the blood — IgA, IgG, and IgM. Each antibody is formed during a different stage of the candida infection and can signify if the infection is active, past, or ongoing, and how serious the infection is.

Why would my doctor order a Candida Antibody Blood Test?

Your provider may order a blood test for candida antibodies to diagnose the overproduction of candida caused by either the disruption of healthy bacteria or a compromised immune system. Some factors may include pregnancy, antibiotic use, birth control pills, diabetes, immunosuppression, or HIV infection. 

When should I order a Candida Antibody Blood Test?

Your provider may wish to order a Candida Blood Test if you’ve exhibited the following symptoms:  

  • Oral thrush — candidiasis that develops in the mouth or throat
  • Yeast infection — candidiasis that develops in the vagina
  • Itching or irritated genitals
  • Fatigue
  • Sinus infections
  • Digestive issues

You cannot take a Candida Blood Test at home — this test can only be administered by a medical professional at a licensed testing facility. 

How do I read the results of the test?

Once you receive the results of your blood test for candida overgrowth, you will need to consult with your provider. Only a medical professional can advise you on the results of your candida antibody levels and help you develop a treatment plan if necessary.  

Do my results change with age?

Age and lifestyle factors can contribute to common and repetitive candida infections. Thrush is commonly found in babies, the elderly, and those with weakened immune systems. Sexual intercourse and breastfeeding can contribute to candida infections being passed back and forth between people of various ages. Broad spectrum antibiotics can also lead to candida infections to patients of any age. A blood test for candida overgrowth and infection can help you get repeated flare-ups under control. 

What should I expect at my appointment?

There are no special requirements for the Candida Blood Test. Your provider will draw a blood sample from a vein in your arm. Candida Blood Test results typically take 3-5 business days to process.

FAQs

What does it mean if my candida albicans screen blood test numbers are high?

An infection of candida in your bloodstream can lead to a condition called Invasive Candidemia, which can turn into a serious illness if left untreated. 

Who should get a Candida Blood Test?

If you suspect you have a candida infection, you may be a good candidate for a candida blood test. Discuss with your provider whether a blood test or other form of candida testing is right for you. 

Can a general blood test detect candida?

Most general blood tests do not specifically test for candida. Ask your doctor which blood test is most suitable for your needs. 

How long does Candida Blood Test take?

Typically, candida blood tests should not take very long. The sample collection (blood draw) is completed in 5-10 minutes. Results can take 3-5 business days to process.
