I am not the best person to ask in regards to testing; I looked at the metametrix test when I visited their website and I basically don’t know what is the best one to do for your circumstance. Your doctor would have the best idea. I know the GI stool effects test is a diagnostic test for candida.
Relating to this and building on what mooch mentioned; there is always the chance you have other flora that are out of balance such as strept, h.pylori, sibo (bacteria), etc. Also, there is a good chance you have parasites because the environment in your gut is beneficial to both yeast and parasites…they grow in the same environment.
Oh yeah. I also tested positive for H.Pylori and a couple of parasites were found. My doc mentioned that I need to get those treated as well – probably with more anti biotics…
DV Jorge, what tests can I go through to make my doctors think that it is not all in my head ? Or, will that be nearly impossible ?
Anyways, I am heading to bed. Thanks guys. I wish you all the best of luck in pursuing your happiness and a healthy future full of smiles.
