Candida Questionnaire

 

 

 

 


The candida questionnaire aims to determine whether candida COULD be a factor contributing to your ill health. It does this with a series of questions taking into account your personal history and your present symptoms. The candida questionnaire is designed for adults and should not be used by children under 12.

 

For each "Yes" answer in Section A, circle the point score in that section. Record your total score in the box at the end of the section. Then move on to Sections B and C and score as directed.

 

Filling out and scoring this candida questionnaire should help you and your doctor evaluate the possible role of Candida in contributing to your health problems. Yet it will not provide an automatic "Yes" or "No" answer.
