A healthy immune system usually keeps its growth under control but in immunocompromised states chances of invasive candidiasis are quite high. A positive outcome of this test would mean that either the patient is currently suffering from the disease or has suffered in past.
Those experiencing symptoms of Candida such as thick white discharge, itching or irritation in the genital area, a yeasty odor, and bloating; Those who are taking antibiotics or birth control pills; Those who are pregnant, have diabetes or an HIV infection.
