Candida overgrowth is the most common cause of systemic fungal infection and accounts for 80% of all major systemic fungal infections. Symptoms may be attributed to food sensitivity because the invasive fungi can increase rapidly in number and permeate the digestive tract. Diets high in simple carbohydrates have been found to increase rates of oral candidiasis. Mild, chronic and polysystemic candidiasis can be positively diagnosed by the determination of high serum levels of IgG, IgA and IgM antibodies against Candida antigens. Immune complexes are clusters of interlocking antigens and antibodies. Normally, immune complexes are rapidly removed from the bloodstream. Sometimes, however, they continue to circulate, and eventually become trapped in the tissues of the kidneys, the lungs, skin, joints, or blood vessels. There they set off reactions with the complement that lead to inflammation and tissue damage.
