Candida Antibodies & Antigen Panel FAQs

Are there any medications or supplement restrictions prior to testing?

Immunosuppressive drugs may affect test results. The suggested time period to abstain from these is 4 weeks. However, the dosage, route, half-life of medication, and duration of administration on systemic immune response, can vary on its effects. The practitioner must weigh in these variables with the current health status of the patient.

What is the age or other restrictions for testing?

There is no under age limit. US BioTek’s IgE antibody assays are suitable for 10 years of age and older. Our specific IgA is not suitable for breast-fed infants. Not suitable for individuals with an IgA deficiency or suboptimal levels.
