Diagnosis and Testing for Invasive Candidiasis
How is invasive candidiasis diagnosed?
Healthcare providers rely on your medical history, symptoms, physical examinations, and laboratory tests to diagnose invasive candidiasis. The most common way that healthcare providers test for invasive candidiasis is by taking a blood sample and sending it to a laboratory to see if it will grow Candida in a culture.
How long will it take to get my test results?
Results from a blood test will usually be available in a few days.
