Food sensitivity and micronutrient testing can be essential tools in helping you achieve optimal health. These tests can identify which specific foods may be causing unwanted side effects and determine which micronutrients you may be lacking. TruWellnessMD believes in personalized care tailored to each individual. Through micronutrient testing in our in-house laboratory, we identify dietary deficiencies and provide you with a roadmap to better health.
Food Sensitivities vs. Food Allergies
Food sensitivities and food allergies are two different types of reactions to food, although they share some commonalities. Food sensitivities are generally less serious than food allergies and do not include the potentially life-threatening anaphylaxis reaction that can occur with food allergies. Food sensitivity is an adverse reaction to certain foods, but the body does not produce an allergic antibody in response.
Food allergies are much more serious as the body’s immune system produces an allergic antibody in response to the food. Your body essentially mistakes the food for potentially harmful pathogens that must be eliminated, leading to dangerous symptoms and complications. Symptoms can range from mild, such as itchy skin, to life-threatening, such as anaphylaxis. As such, you must avoid foods you’re allergic to.
Signs & Symptoms of Food Sensitivities:
- Mood swings
- General discomfort
Food Sensitivity Testing
Food sensitivity and allergy testing is an invaluable tool that allows us to identify specific food components that may be causing systemic inflammation or triggering an immune-mediated reaction. We empower you to make informed decisions about your diets, lifestyle habits, and treatment plans. By utilizing this advanced test, we can identify potential sensitivities and biochemical imbalances often overlooked by conventional healthcare. This can be a life-saving step in the journey to optimal health and wellness.
