The genus Candida compromise about 154 species of which six most commonly inhabit the skin and mucous membranes as members of normal flora. Candida may mount infection under opportunistic conditions. Predisposing factors that may set up such conditions include trauma, surgery, diabetes, Addison's disease, medications (corticosteroids, antibiotics, oral contraceptives), immunodeficiency, pregnancy, age (elderly, infancy), and malnutrition.
General, fungal infections due to overgrowth of Candida are referred to as Candidiasis which cover a broad range of clinical signs and symptoms encompassing superficial, local and deep infections.

This is a home test kit. Collection of the blood spots is a relatively simple and nearly painless procedure that can be done at home. A simple nick of the finger followed by placing blood drops on a filter card is all that is needed. The kit contains easy step-by-step instructions, skin cleansing wipes, two lancets, a filter paper on which the blood drops are collected, and a band-aid.
Mail the card in the postage-paid envelope, and await your results.
