Candida Abs Ig G M A
My 3 yr old had several tests done and the IgG was 415, auto abs NRBC is 0.00, Auto Abs mono 1.19 and auto mono% 14.9. Should I worry?
Yes: The IgG is low and points to an impaired immune system. The results of the blood test do not appear to be correct (whether it is abnormal or not is another issue). You need to discuss with doctor about the problem leading to the testing being obtained in the first place. ...Read more
I took a cyclic citrullinated peptide IgG abs and the results were > 250h to the 4th power. What does this mean?

Beware: I would be very cautious about any physician or other health care practitioner who proposes to treat you for a candida infection on the basis of bloodwork in the absence of a specific clinical finding of an infection. Labs that promote these tests are strongly linked to fringe medicine. My main concern is that you'll be given inappropriate medication and/or overlook a real health problem. ...Read more
Would a positive igg for Candida Albicans mean systemic infection or that it is an infection somewhere in your body? I have +stool fungal culture.
Not necessarily: I find these studies to be of little value.They are often promoted by alternative health vendors as having value for dozens of chronic conditions. People usually have candida albicans to the point it makes up 5% of the dry weight of stool. Igg is often positive for hundreds of factors for which no problems are present, with the number increasing with age. This includes candida. ...Read more
