Candida blood testing – understanding antibody levels

Candida blood testing – understanding antibody levels

Following an Anti-Candida Antibodies, or Candida Immune Complexes Blood test. There are 3 antibodies that should be tested to measure your immune system’s response to Candida – IgG, IgA, and IgM. High levels of these antibodies indicate that an overgrowth of Candida is present. The following table explains the results for a Candida Antibodies test.

Candida Antibody IgG
0.89 EV or less Negative – No significant level of detectable Candida albicans antibody.
0.90-0.99 EV Equivocal – Questionable presence of antibodies. Repeat testing in 10-14 days may be helpful.
1.00 EV or greater Positive – Antibody to Candida albicans detected. Indicates Candida Infection. CCWS Recommended
Candida Antibody IgM
0.89 EV or less Negative – No significant level of detectable Candida albicans antibody.
0.90-0.99 EV Equivocal – Questionable presence of antibodies. Repeat testing in 10-14 days may be helpful.
1.00 EV or greater Positive – Antibody to Candida albicans detected. Indicates Candida Infection. CCWS Recommended
Candida Antibody IgA
0.89 EV or less Negative – No significant level of detectable Candida albicans antibody.
0.90-0.99 EV Equivocal – Questionable presence of antibodies. Repeat testing in 10-14 days may be helpful.
1.00 EV or greater Positive – Antibody to Candida albicans detected. Indicates Candida Infection. CCWS Recommended

IgM is produced when Candida first becomes systemic, like a first response
IgG is produced when Candida is present for a long time.
So you can get high IgM low IgG – that means new infection.
High IgG and high IgM = new Candida being produced in a long term systemic infection
Low IgM and high IgG = no new Candida infection but a long standing current infection
Remember the test looks at all species of Candida
That’s why it can give these variables
