Candida glabrata is a common cause of candidiasis. Candida glabrata yeast fungus can be difficult to treat as it is resistant to common anti-fungal drugs and thus has a high mortality rate. It is more common in people who suffer from diabetes and a suppressed immune system. Candida can be present in food and other sources.
