Candida questionnaire

Here's a good Candida questionnaire (PDF) from The Yeast Connection. Print it and follow directions to find out if your problems are (or may be) caused by Candida overgrowth. I have not answered this questionnaire yet.

Using a different questionnaire (long version--second test on the page), my score was 198 just two weeks ago. (Any score over 140 in men indicates that "yeast-connected health problems are almost certainly present.") However, after adhering to the anti-Candida diet for the last two weeks, my score is down to 93. (Scores over 90 indicate that "yeast-connected health problems are probably present.)

With just a little more work, I'll be comfortably under 90, which will put me in the range that suggests "yeast-connected health problems are possibly present." Of course, I didn't have to retake the test to know I feel way better now than I felt two weeks ago.

  1. I also took this online questionnaire and scored out of the ball park high. For me, the main symptoms I had were intense sugar cravings, eczema, sinus infections, acid reflux and constipation and I had been suffering from many of these symptoms for at least a decade.

  2. Also may I add that Candida or yeast infection is a condition that is characterized by an overgrowth of yeast, which is a type of fungi in any part of your body. It can be experienced by newborns, older children and adults. According to scientists, fungi grow in warm and moist areas such as skin folds, armpits and vagina. Through this, they recommend that the best candida treatment is proper hygiene.
