This questionnaire is adapted from W. G. Crook The Yeast Connection.

Although the Candida Questionnaire can help determine your condition, ultimately the best method for diagnosing candidiasis is clinical evaluation by a physician knowledgeable about yeast-related illness.

If your score indicates you have a yeast overgrowth, I highly recommend the yeast control products:  Yeast Max, YeastZyme Max, and Ultimate FloraMax Advanced Care 100 Billion
