* Filling out and scoring this
questionnaire should help you and your physician evaluate how
Candida Albicans may be contributing to your health problems. Yet
it will not provide an automatic yes or no answer. A
comprehensive history and physical examination are important. In
addition, laboratory studies, x-rays, and other types of tests
may also be appropriate.

** The use of nasal or bronchial sprays containing cortisone and/or other
steroids promotes overgrowth in the respiratory tract.
