Does anybody know how to find out what strain of candida I have?

When the doctor did a vaginal test, they found out they I have candida glabrata. I was told that this is the most stubborn type of candida and difficult to treat. I was given boric acid for cure. I am not sure if I cured it as the next test did not show anything, but I need to retest many times, as I still have symptoms.

Now I am questioning what if in my intestines and blood I have candida glabrata also.

Because I am doing nystatin enemas, taking natural antifunguls.

I read on the forum that nystatin does not kill glabrata, also I am not sure if antifungals I am taking kill glabrata as well.

I am becoming more confused and disappointed.

Can anybody recommend any lab to go and test for candida and show their experience if they have glabrata as well?

Many thanks.

Delyse, I didn’t know that Candida Glabrata was found in your vagina.
Candida Glabrata is unicellular. It doesn’t mutate but is extremely pathogenic. It isn’t resistant to Nystatin in vitro. In your blood, you don’t have it. In your intestines, very likely. Let think if I can help you with some recommendation. Don’t stop the Nystatin.
