I requested my PCP test for Candida with my daughter who has never had Lyme but dealing with a variety of symptoms including anxiety, depression, and OCD.

My PCP is clueless and may be a while before I can get her to my LLMD. Can someone interpret these results, particularly the IGA?

Candida AB OGG: .9
Candida AB IGA: 1.0 (high)
Candida AB IGM: .6
Yeast (S. Cerevisae) IGG: 4.4 (high)

Symptomatically, if we crave bread and sugar, that can be a sign of yeast overgrowth.

I don't know this scoring, but if the testing is saying it's high, have you discussed with your daughter the possibility of going on a nonyeast diet? It takes a little research and preparation.

When I did it, I did a step-down diet - I eliminated sugar but kept sweet fruit. Then when I got over the sugar craving in 10 days, I then eliminated the sweet fruit and followed a nonyeast diet.

And some go on nonyeast medications too.

I don't know anything about tests for candida.

I'm with Robin... we usually know when we have candida by what we crave.
