No the positive IgG to Candida is typical...most of us would test positive to this . It is one of the most common potential infections that we tend to face. Candida Albicans is called a "yeast infection" but it is not the same as brewers yeastvsuch as to make bread rise for example. Candida albicans is common nuisance type infection that may cause a thrush of the mouth or vaginal "yeast " infections.

The term "yeast " identifies a subtype of the fungal type micro-organisms... It is a broad term ....
