Food Allergy

IgE Type 1 - Immediate Hypersensitivity reactions



It is estimated that 7/10 people have been colonized with Candida species, yet have no signs of disease. This is due to the fact that Candida albicans can be either a harmless commensal organism or a potentially aggressive pathogen. To prevent Candida from becoming pathogenic requires to following: maintenance of normal bacterial flora in the mucosa, a healthy epithelium, and a functioning immune system.

Candida overgrowth in the gut has been associated with symptoms like clouded thinking, depression, diarrhea, exhaustion, bad breath, fatigue, menstrul pain, thrush, vaginal yeast infections, fungal nail symptoms, and headaches. Patients with compromised immune systems are at risk for invasive and potentially life-threatening systemic Candida infections.
