Self Test for Candidiasis

Take This Short Self-test to See if Your Symptoms May be Related to Candidiasis.

This short assessment test is designed to help identify the level of yeast overgrowth you may have. The results will help you and our expert consultants determine the specific program you should pursue.

Please note that this doctor-created quiz is intended for adults. It lists factors in your medical history which promote the growth of the common yeast Candida Albicans.

How to Take the Test
For each Yes answer in Section A, click the Point Score radio

button next to the question in that section. You will find the score automatically added up for you. Then move on to Sections B and C. Your section scores and your composite score will be displayed upon completion.

Taking this test should help you and/or your physician evaluate the possible role of yeasts in contributing to your health problems. Yet it will not provide an automatic Yes or No answer.
