Found in the gastrointestinal tract as a microscopic yeast that is kept in check by the immune system. It can overgrow due to bad diet, antibiotics or immune deficiency causing a variety of symptoms; asthma, allergies, headaches, myalgia (achy muscles), fatigue, depression, anxiety, skin problems, PMS, menstral problems, frequent yeast infections, chronic sinusitis, digestive problems, or environmental sensitivity.
The fungus that causes candidiasis, otherwise known as a yeast infection.
The yeast responsible for oral and vaginal thrush
a parasitic fungus that can infect the mouth or the skin or the intestines or the vagina
Candida albicans is a species of yeast-like fungi normally a part of human gastrointestinal flora, but can become pathogenic when there is a disturbance in the balance of flora or in debilitation of the host (also called thrush fungus).
A yeast that causes thrush and in more severe cases, symptoms can affect the whole body.
a yeast that is responsible for causing infection of the skin, nails or vaginal area
(monila): A fungus known to cause yeast infections such as thrush.
a yeast, common in the intestinal tract which can produce chronic overgrowth and adversely affect many bodily functions
A yeast-like fungal organism found in small amounts in the normal human intestinal tract. Normally kept in check by the body's own helpful bacteria, C. albicans can increase in numbers when this balance is disturbed to cause candidiasis of the intestinal tract, or yeast infections of other parts of the body. C. albicans causes thrush. Also called Monilia albicans. See the entire definition of Candida albicans
A type of fungus normally present in the body but in overabundance can cause a yeast infection.
A common saprophyte of the digestive tract and female urogenital tract. It does not ordinarily cause disease, but may do so following a disruption of bacterial flora of the body, or in patients with depressed immune systems.
small, oval budding fungus or yeast that is the primary disease causing organism of the infection moniliasis candidiasis, commonly referred to as candida.
AA normally harmless microscopic yeast that lives within the human gastrointestinal tract, it can overgrow and cause fatigue, depression, joint pain, headaches, and recurrent infections.
(C. albicans) A genus of yeast-like fungi. Yeast organism which can cause such infections a thrush (mouth), vaginitis, and systemic infections.
Yeast like fungus responsible for the infection candidiasis (a yeast infection).
A species of yeast-like fungus usually found in the skin, mouth and gut. It can lead to candidiasis, causing thrush and other serious diseases.
Fungus that causes a yeast infection in the mucous membranes of the mouth or genitals.
Candida albicans is a species of yeast which is commonly found in the mouth, intestines, and vagina as a part of the human body's normal flora and which normally does not cause problems. However, it can cause candidiasis of the mucous membranes in the mouth (also called thrush) and of the vagina (called vaginitis or simply a yeast infection). It can also cause more serious diseases in people with AIDS and in chemotherapy patients. find all NHC pages containing: candida albicans
Candida albicans is a diploid sexual fungus (a form of yeast), and a causal agent of opportunistic and vaginal infections in humans. Systemic fungal infections (fungemias) have emerged as important causes of morbidity and mortality in immunocompromised patients (e.g., AIDS, cancer chemotherapy, organ or bone marrow transplantation). In addition, hospital-related infections in patients not previously considered at risk (e.g. patients on an intensive care unit) have become a cause of major health concern.
