Hey flamming,Don't mind our resident heckler.While candida is often found in the intestines, its overgrowth in the intestines is usually in conjuction with other pathogen overgrowths due to low beneficial bacteria(dysbiosis), the comprehensive digestive stool analysis from great smokies can detect it~~ http://www.crohns.net/Merchant2/merchant.m...ategory_Code=DT Standard labs used by MDs are notorious for missing pathogen overgrowths.For sorting fact from fiction regarding candida, this is a great article: http://www.alternative-doctor.com/allergydotcom/candida.htm For those with IBS who are into natural treatment, and those who believe they have the "yeast syndrome", this is a really great forum http://forum.lowcarber.org/forumdisplay.php?f=77 The posts I've read at the above forum where they actually took the great smokies cdsa test showed "low positive"(2 posts) or in one case "candia +3, out of 4". The poster that showed +3 for candida also showed three other pathogenic bacterial overgrowths.IMO, Candida is just one of many possible overgrowths that can occur when the beneficial bacteria that usually keep pathogens at bay are lowered.

Unfortunately, this will not tell you whether or not you have a problem. It will only tell you if have Candida in your system. Candida in your large intestine (colon) is typical, not abnormal, and may not cause any illness or problems. Candida in your small intesine or blood stream may make you quite ill with potential life-threatening results.According to information posted on The Environmental Illness Resource Org
quote: Although the CDSA does test for yeast and hence is often used if a Candida overgrowth is a suspected problem, many top functional medicine doctors agree that this particular test is not particularly reliable for this purpose as yeast can be found in the stool of perfectly healthy people and it will often give false negative results, i.e. indicate that no yeast were detected when in fact the patient DOES have a significant intestinal overgrowth. One reason for this is because overgrowth of yeast is predominantly a problem in the small intestine and since the stool is formed in the colon, the yeast do not get caught up in it, and hence show up on examination.

FYIPostgrad Med J. 1992 Jun;68(800):453-4. Related Articles, Links The role of faecal Candida albicans in the pathogenesis of food-intolerant irritable bowel syndrome.Middleton SJ, Coley A, Hunter JO.Department of Gastroenterology, Addenbrooke's Hospital, Cambridge, UK.Candida albicans was sought in stool samples from 38 patients with irritable bowel syndrome and 20 healthy controls. In only three patients with irritable bowel syndrome was C. albicans discovered and these patients had either recently received antibiotics or the stool sample had been delayed more than 24 hours in transit. C. albicans was isolated from none of the control stool samples. We conclude that C. albicans is not involved in the aetiology of the irritable bowel syndrome.PMID: 1437926
