Food allergies are a common occurrence and are usually not seen as anything more than an inconvenience for those who have them. However, some food allergies can be detrimental, and as we age we may be more inclined to develop these sensitivities.
HealthGains wants to help you figure out where your health stands. As part of our mission to bring our clients only the most detailed health assessments, we offer the most advanced diagnostic tests available. One of these is the ALCAT test which finds Food & Chemical Sensitivity/Intolerance.
The ALCAT test is a sensitivity test that identifies your body’s reaction to more than 350 foods, chemicals and other substances. The substances can be associated with inflammations that are linked to chronic health problems including migraines, aching joints, fatigue and gastrointestinal disorder.
Unlike most other tests which can only detect exposures one at a time, the ALCAT is the premier test for detecting almost all food allergies and other sensitivities/intolerances.
According to some studies, the ALCAT test can be up to 83.4 percent accurate with food allergens and 96 percent accurate with food additives.

How Does the ALCAT Test Work?
The ALCAT blood test works by measuring the changes in size and amount of white blood cells. These changes can occur due to ex vivo challenges with foods, chemicals and other environmental stimuli. Results are generated by relating the patient’s own blood without test substrate to their tested, reactive blood sample.
The results of the test are separated into four sections: Severe Intolerance, Moderate Intolerance, Mild Intolerance and Acceptable Foods. The results are shown on a color-coded print-out that can be accessed online by your doctor or by hard copy.
