Organic Acids Test + Yeast Culture w/ Sensitivity Test Combo


This combo panel includes three tests for the presence of yeast. The Organic Acids Test measures yeast metabolites in the urine. In the Yeast Culture with Sensitivity Test, a culture is grown and the stool sample is examined under the microscope. If the yeast grows in culture, sensitivity of that yeast to prescription antifungals and to natural antimicrobials is determined. This information is valuable in directing therapy for yeast overgrowth.


This panel includes:
