Allergies can be difficult to manage, especially if you're not sure exactly what you're allergic to. Food allergies in particular can also be dangerous. At Dr. Kuthiala Allergy & Asthma in Jacksonville, FL, our ALCAT allergy testing services can help you narrow in on exactly which foods trigger allergic reactions so you can avoid those foods altogether or be prepared to treat a reaction if one should occur. In cases of unspecified or undiagnosed food allergies, the ALCAT test could be potentially lifesaving.

The ALCAT Test may help uncover which foods and other substances trigger chronic inflammation and its related health issues such as gastrointestinal, metabolic disorders and others.
A small sample of your blood is sent to the laboratory for testing. Your white blood cells are tested against foods and other substances in a process known as flow cytometry and cell impedance methodology. After testing, the results are presented in a clear and easy to read color-coded format.
