Which Patients Need to be Tested for Fungal Antibodies

Toxins released by fungi can cause multiple systemic symptoms, including but not limited to:

Gastrointestinal: bloating, constipation, gas, heartburn, inflammation, irritable bowel syndrome, bad breath (halitosis), oral thrush
Skin: acne, dandruff, anal itching, dermatitis, nail fungus, discolored nails, hives
Neurological: poor memory, tingling, anxiety, fatigue, mood swings, brain fog
Endocrine: adrenal and thyroid malfunction, impotence, sex hormone imbalances

Facts About Fungal Antibodies and Fungal Overgrowth

Fungal overgrowth can be the underlying cause of many chronic inflammatory symptoms or conditions, and symptoms can be identical to many other systemic infections, requiring highly accurate lab testing to provide definitive answers.

Antibodies to fungal microorganisms can often provide clues to fungal overgrowths in the human body that are otherwise difficult to detect, due to biofilm formation.

In patients with exposure to other fungal infections or mycoses, such as toxic mold exposure, concomitant fungal infections are common, and must also be detected and treated to ensure total return to health and well-being.
