RAPID TEST FOR CANDIDIASIS
Veneris test provides a rapid diagnosis for candidiasis by detecting Candida albicans in the urine, the overgrowth of which causes the infection.
Candidiasis may occur when the immune system is weakened, following antibiotic treatment and in people with diabetes, therefore frequent testing is recommended, especially in these cases.
Candida albicans is a fungus that lives almost everywhere, including in your body. Usually, your immune system keeps yeast under control. Candida albicans is also has been called vulvo-vaginal candidiasis, candidal vaginitis, monilial infection, or vaginal yeast infection. Twenty to 25% of the vaginitis cases are candida vulvovaginitis. It has been estimated that about 75% of all women get a vaginal yeast infection at least once. In 80-90% of the cases, candida vulvovaginitis is caused by an overgrowth of the yeast Candida albicans. In otherwise healthy people who have thrush, cutaneous candidiasis, or vaginal yeast infections, Candida infections usually can be eliminated with a short treatment (sometimes a single dose) of antifungal medication. However, in people with AIDS or other diseases that weaken the immune system, Candida infections can be difficult to treat and can return after treatment. In people with weakened immune systems, candidiasis can be life threatening if it passes into the blood and spreads to vital organs.
