Not sure about yeast: No test result can be evaluated out of the context in which it was ordered. What kind of symptoms prompted the study? What are your underlying medical conditions (that may predispose you to intestinal yeast)? If you are in the midst of a GI evaluation, have they ruled out inflammation, other infections, ischemic pathology, as well as motility disorders? By the way, one good probiotic is a yeast!
