100 FOOD SENSITIVITY AND INTOLERANCE TEST
Intolerances differ significantly from allergies. Unlike allergies, intolerances may vary from situation to situation, while an allergy always produces the same reaction. Intolerances may lead to bloating, digestive problems such as gas and/or diarrhea, fatigue, headaches and even the inability to lose or gain weight.
Symptoms may be difficult to link to specific foods, environmental substances or food additives because they may not occur until hours or days later. To complicate the situation, each individual has a different tolerance for specific foods, so even if a person has an intolerance, it may be mild so that a small amount of the food doesn’t cause a reaction until enough of the food is eaten or is consumed consistently over time.
The ALCAT 100 Food Sensitivity and Intolerance Panel is a simple blood test that measures the body’s cellular reactivity to the foods in the 100 Food Panel. The following foods are included in the 100 Food Panel:
