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

Had stool analysis done.showed 'many candida albicans'. Is this bad? Does it mean I have systemic yeast? I have no stomach problems or other symptoms

No worries!: "Systemic yeast" is an urban myth -- often used to explain any number of symptoms but not an accepted medical entity, at least not by the scientific medicine community. It is normal to have yeasts in the intestine anmd to be visible in feces. Also, "stool analysis" is pretty much a waste of time and money, except in very specific circumstances and if recommended by an appropriate specialist. ...Read more

Sputum test reports heavy growth of Candida albicans and pseudomonas aeruginosa. No symptoms excpt stuffy nose and throat clearing for 2 yrs. pls help?

More info needed: Pseudomonas and Candida often appear when normal bacteria are suppressed by antibiotics. Have you been taking antibiotics, maybe for your stuffy nose and cough? Or have you been hospitalized recently? If you are otherwise healthy, chest xray normal (no pneumonia), and you don't have severe bronchitis, probably these results can be ignored. Discuss with your doctor or infectious disease specialist. ...Read more
