The Grand Total Score will help you and your physician decide if your health problems are yeast-connected. Scores for women will run higher, as 7 items in this questionnaire apply exclusively to women, while only 2 apply exclusively to men.

  • Yeast-connected health problems are almost certainly present in women with scores over 180, and in men with scores over 140.
  • Yeast-connected health problems are probably present in women with scores over 120, and in men with scores over 90.
  • Yeast-connected health problems are possibly present in women with scores over 60, and in men with scores over 40.
  • With scores less than 60 for women and 40 for men, yeast are less apt to cause health problems.
