Por que realizar este exame?

Candidiasis is an opportunistic infection caused by yeast, and can lead to various changes: dysbiosis, allergies and food intolerances, leaky gut syndrome, oxidative stress, etc. The most frequently implicated etiological agent is Candida Albicans, which produces arabitol and leads to increased levels of arabinose. Accordingly, high levels of arabinose in the urine may be a good indicator of Candida Albicans infections and may assist in the treatment of the patient presenting the mentioned changes.

O que é o exame?

The test accurately analyzes the level of arabinose in the urine of the patient and allows knowing if the patient presents high levels of arabinose, thus aiding a more effective and less invasive diagnosis.
