This questionnaire lists factors in your medical history that promote the growth of the common yeast, Candida albicans (Section A), and symptoms commonly found in individuals with yeast-connected illness (Sections B and C).
* Filling out and scoring this questionnaire should help you and your physician evaluate how Candida albicans may be contributing to your health problems. Yet 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.
The total score will help you and your physician decide if your health problems are yeast-connected. Scores for women will run higher, as 7 items in this questionnaire apply exclusively to women, while only 2 apply exclusively to men.
Yeast-connected health problems are almost certainly present in women with scores over 180, and in men with scores over 140.
Yeast-connected health problems are probably present in women with scores over 120, and in men with scores over 90.
Yeast-connected health problems are possibly present in women with scores over 60, and in men with scores over 40.
With scores less than 60 for women and 40 for men, yeast are less apt to cause health problems.
