Here is an abbreviated version of a questionnaire, created by Dr William Crook and designed to test for Candida.
The main difficulty with testing for Candida is that everyone has it! It is not the presence of Candida that is a problem, rather is is the overgrowth of Candida that gives you all those nasty symptoms.
