Table 1 Mycology: results of Chi square analysis, number and percentage distribution and p values for comparison of detection of yeasts between COED Group and Control Group (the cut-off level for reporting the detection of yeast was >10, 000 parts per gram of DNA per gram of faeces)

From: Significantly higher faecal counts of the yeasts candida and saccharomyces identified in people with coeliac disease

Yeast species CoeD group n = 45 Control group n = 27 Chi square
