Test Scoring & Results

 

 

Total Score – Section A

 

 

Total Score – Section B

 

 

Total Score – Section C

 

 

Grand Total Score (add sections A, B & C)

 

The Grand Total Score will help you and your health care provider decide if your health problems are yeast-connected.

Scores for woman will typically run higher. Yeast-connected health problems are almost certainly present in woman with scores over 180, and in men with scores over 140.

Yeast-connected health problems are probably present in woman with scores over 120 and in men with scores over 90.

Yeast-connected health problems are possibly present in woman with scores over 60 and in men with scores over 40.

With scores less than 60 for woman and 40 for men, yeast are less apt to cause health problems.

IMPORTANT
You must kill off Candida from throughout your system to get well, not just from the intestinal tract. All of the fungicides listed in this site will kill yeast both systemically and in your intestines.
