Food Sensitivity 1
About The Test
This test measures the IgG (delayed reaction) to 96 commonly consumed foods such as gluten, garlic, tomatoes, and 93 more! Testing aids in the identification of these problematic foods. Clinical complaints related to food sensitivities range from mild bloating to severe behavior problems.
Food Sensitivity 2 – Iga & IGG
About The Test
This panel combines the Food Sensitivity 1 and 2 Profiles. It measures IgA and IgG antibodies to 180 commonly consumed food antigens such as shrimp, peanut, wheat and 177 others. This is the blood spot version of the test. It is also available as a serum test. This test cannot be ordered for clients under 2 years of age.
WHO IS THE FOOD SENSITIVITY PANEL BEST USED FOR?
The root cause of a variety of health problems often stems from the foods we are consuming every day. These can also include foods that are considered healthy. Identifying these foods is a key step to symptom improvement. Food sensitivities may arise anytime throughout one’s life. They may result from repetitive consumption, lack of diversity in the diet, emotional or physical stress, reduced oral tolerance, chronic infection such as Candida albicans, Lyme’s disease and more.
Food Sensitivity Panel should be considered when clients present the following symptoms or conditions:
WHAT IS THE MICRONUTRIENTS PANEL TEST?
The Micronutrients Panel from Vibrant America is the only test that provides a comprehensive extracellular and intracellular assessment of the levels of the most important vitamins (essential organic nutrients), minerals (inorganic nutrients), antioxidants, fatty acids, and amino acids. Knowing both your extracellular and intracellular micronutrient levels are key to a thorough understanding of your nutritional requirements at a foundational level, which may contribute to your risk for disease, while simultaneously and positively impacting your overall health and well-being.
WHO IS THE MICRONUTRIENTS PANEL TEST BEST USED FOR?
• The test is recommended for individuals who suffer from chronic diseases like diabetes, cardiovascular conditions, arthritis, skin problems, numbness/tingling in your hands or feet, weakened immune system, digestive issues/disorders like celiac, wheat sensitivity, IBS, IBD, and SIBO.
• It is also recommended for clients experiencing advanced aging, stress, tiredness, or suffering chronic fatigue and depression.
• Individuals with a history of long-term use of prescription medications, poor diet, and obesity should also consider this test.
• People on special diets such as Vegan or Vegetarian athletes or individuals who exercise regularly may also want to request this test.
WHAT DOES MICRONUTRIENTS PANEL TEST MEASURE?
The test measures 40 different vitamins (i.e. Zinc, Potassium, Sodium) and minerals with the addition of amino acids and fatty acids, RBC, and Omega fatty acids. White Blood Cells (WBC) levels are normalized to the total WBC count for the analysis.
ABOUT THE TEST
The GI-MAP measures a variety of gastrointestinal microbiota DNA using qPCR technology. It detects microbial imbalance, microbes contributing to illness, and indicators of digestion, absorption, inflammation, and immune function. Due to a supply shortage, this test no longer includes antibiotic resistance genes to opportunistic/universal bacteria.
• Autoimmune diseases
• Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
• Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD)
• Digestive complaints (bloating, diarrhea, or constipation)
• Brain fog
• Skin problems like acne and psoriasis
• Mood disorders, depression, and anxiety
• Diabetes and weight loss issues
GI-MAP + ZONULIN
ABOUT THE TEST
Similar to the GI Map test, the GI-MAP + Zonulin Test measures a variety of gastrointestinal microbiota DNA using qPCR technology. It detects microbial imbalance, microbes contributing to illness, and indicators of digestion, absorption, inflammation, and immune function.
This test also includes an add-on for the leaky gut marker zonulin.
The GI-MAP® from Diagnostic Solutions Laboratory is
a comprehensive stool analysis that measures gastro- intestinal microbiota DNA from a single stool sample. Using state-of-the-art, quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR) technology, the GI-MAP evaluates gut pathogens, bacterial infections, yeast overgrowth, viruses, and parasites. Antibiotic resistance genes and virulence factors are also included on the test for un- paralleled insight into H. pylori.
