This questionnaire lists factors in your medical history that promote the growth of the common yeast—Candida albicans—and symptoms commonly found in individuals with yeast-connect illness.
For children, there is a different questionnaire. (For instance, a child does not have to have taken any antibiotics to have yeast problems.)
Filling out and scoring this questionnaire should help you and your physician evaluate how Candida albicans may be contributing to your health problems.
However, it will not provide an automatic yes or no answer. A comprehensive history and physical examination are important. In addition, laboratory studies, x-rays, and other types of tests may also be appropriate.
Your final score will help you and your physician determine if your health problems may be related to yeast.
Scores for women will run higher because 7 questions applied exclusively to women, while only 2 apply exclusively to men.
If your score is above normal, it is important to talk to a physician about ways to repair your 'leaky gut' and prevent yeast from destroying your health.
Many of my patients have tried pharmaceuticals, diets, and supplements but still say, "I feel bloated, I have no energy, and still seem to gain weight."
A physician may prescribe you a pill, but unfortunately there is no pill in existence that will fix your health.
