Although doctors often suggest several types of tests such as a blood test, stool samples, and even urine tests, the most dependable test for a Candida albicans overgrowth is an Immune Complexes test. Genova Diagnoses (http://www.gdx.net/product/10036 )  is one company which can perform these tests. This type of test will evaluate both the blood and stool for an immune reactivity to the Candida albicans by utilizing Candida IgG antibodies and a yeast culture. Another very good test that I've found is the Candia5 testing kit which tests your blood for antibodies and can be done in the ease of your own home.

In my opinion, the best test is to judge for yourself. Go to either Bing or Google and key in the search term, “candida infestation symptoms” and you should bring up a number of different sites which will list the many symptoms of a Candida albicans overgrowth; simply compare your symptoms with the list. If you have a good number of the symptoms shown, then there’s a good chance that you could have a Candida infestation in your body. You can also start a good Candida diet for just a few days and watch for any changes in the way you feel. If you have an actual overgrowth of Candida albicans in your body, you should know it within a few days of being on a Candia diet.
