About Our Candida albicans Allergy Test
Note: Fasting is not required for this test.
This IgE antibody allergy test uses a blood sample to determine if you are allergic to Candida albicans, a yeast.
Candida albicans is a yeast that is naturally found in the body since birth. It is normally limited by the immune system or other bacteria to balance it and keep it from overgrowing. Despite this, a few things can happen to cause the overgrowth of Candida albicans, possibly resulting in a chronic Candida sensitivity, which in turn can lead to numerous food and chemical sensitivities.
Its universal distribution, infectious properties and readiness to provoke immunological response make the evaluation of potential hypersensitivities difficult. Candida-specific IgE antibodies have been demonstrated in asthma and rhinitis.
Traditional allergy tests utilize the Skin Prick method (also known as a Puncture or Scratch test) to determine whether an allergic reaction will occur by inserting possible triggers into your skin using a needle prick. If you are allergic to the substance, you are forced to suffer through your body's reaction to the allergen. HealthLabs.com offers an easier, virtually pain-free blood test to determine the allergen status of substances without the irritation of traditional skin prick tests.
- No painful skin pricks
- No fasting necessary
- Accurate results within 1 to 3 days
