Yeasts such as Candida are a natural part of our healthy gut flora, however different yeasts can commonly overgrow due to disruption in the GI environment.
Overgrowth can cause mild to severe symptoms that occur consistently and chronically.
Common symptoms associated with yeast overgrowth include:
- abdominal distention
- constipation or diarrhea (or a mixed of them),
- abdominal pain
- excessive belching and/or flatulence
- Weight loss/ weight gain
Completing a yeast stool panel can provide a comprehensive assessment of all yeast strains present and overgrown in the intestinal flora. This panel will specify which yeast strains are present in pathological levels, and determine their natural and pharmacological antimicrobial susceptibility. This assessment helps to guide and create a successful treatment plan.
If you are frequently experiencing the symptoms listed above, ask your Natural Med Doc physician about our Yeast Stool Testing.
