My doctor now wants me to take a urine test which I believe can see if my body is still fighting the fungus but I’ve also read that this is not always correct.
There are several candida albicans specific metabolites that can be detected in urine. The most specific is Arabinose ( tartaric acid ) in urine. That test was developed by Dr. William Shaw who is the head of researchers and director of the Great Plain Lab. He has dedicated a lot of time to research the cause of Autism that is thought to be linked to yeast and abnormal gut microbiota.
