Digestive conditions are often the result of food sensitivities or intolerances, which can develop at any stage in life. You may have a food sensitivity if you constantly suffer from gas, bloating, abdominal pain, itchy skin, chronic pain or headache, and chronic fatigue. Unlike food allergies, where symptoms appear almost immediately after eating, food sensititvity symptoms may be delayed for hours, days or weeks. This makes it hard to diagnose this condition.
Using a leading-edge technology called Genarrayt microarray, the Food IgG Antibody Test* (Food Sensititvity Test) from Dynacare, measures over 220 specific foods in duplicate to produce results with higher accuracy than other tests. The food extracts used for testing are prepared mostly from organic foods and extensively washed to remove any pesticides, microorganisms or other contaminants that could affect test results. You have the option to get tested for 120 or 220 food extracts.
