Sarasota ALCAT Testing

Food Allergy Diagnostic Test

Platinum Healthcare provides diagnostic assessments to determine a patient’s possible food sensitivities. A simple blood test called the ALCAT, performed in the office, identifies foods that a patient’s body is unable to correctly metabolize. The blood test uncovers these “trigger foods,” allowing our medical professionals to create a meal plan to safely eliminate these food from your diet.

Food sensitivities affect roughly 70% of Americans and are the unsuspecting cause of many health conditions, such as:

  • Arthritis
  • Fatigue
  • irritable bowel syndrome
  • headaches/migraines
  • obesity
  • attention deficit disorder

If you think you or a loved one has a food allergy, call (941) 214-4009 today to schedule an ALCAT test at Platinum Healthcare in Sarasota.

How Does ALCAT Testing Work?

The ALCAT test has helped more than half a million people identify food allergies, making it the most successful food allergy diagnostic procedure available. After a sample of your blood is taken, it is taken to a lab where technicians observe how your white blood cells react to foods and other potential allergens. An allergy is a condition that triggers the release of antibodies to substances that would otherwise be harmless. Since white blood cells are responsible for fighting invaders in the body, learning how your white blood cells react to different foods is key to diagnosing a food allergen.
