ALCAT Food Sensitivity Testing

Food sensitivities are extremely common, but oftentimes go undiagnosed. This is usually because symptoms associated with food sensitivities, such as migraines, bloating, abdominal pain, eczema and other skin problems, are linked to many other health conditions. Food sensitivity testing at our Matteson location includes the highly effective ALCAT (Antigen Leukocyte Cellular Antibody) Test to detect food intolerance.

The ALCAT test measures the leukocyte cellular activity in order to identify your food intolerance. Different from the standard skin test, the ALCAT Test is a blood test, which is especially effective for detecting food sensitivities that cause delayed type reactions. What makes this test so accurate is that it screens over 300 foods, chemicals, environmentals and substances. Once we diagnose your sensitivities, our team of nutritionists will provide you with alternative food options to supplement your intolerance.
