Dear user,

Presence of yeast cells in a properly done stool examination is indicative of fungal infection of the alimentary tract. For this, it is necessary to take anti-fungal medications like fluconazole. This must be done under the guidance of a medical practitioner.

Please consult an appropriate registered medical practitioner.

With best wishes,

Dr. Taher
